I just had to make me a holster because I was not finding what I wanted on the market.
So, since I carry concealed every where I go, and I get to wear blue jeans to work, and Just love blue jeans period. I decide to make me a holster out of denim
At the time I only made one other holster out of a leather, and it was ok.
The denim holster I made was real easy to do, Fast, and not much cost in them.
Only need a few yards of denim, some 3mm fun foam that you can get a Hobby store anywhere, spray glue for fabric.
And access to your Wife/Mothers sewing machine.
First step is to cut your pattern out of the fun foam.
Second step is to use the spray glue to attach the fabric to the foam. Leave some over hang on the denim about 1/4 inch around your pattern.
The glue just helps out when sewing the fabric together, but also if you use the spray glue and a roller you can press out all the wrinkles in the fabric and it makes for a much nicer products.
Once this is done all you do now is sew along the 1/4 over hang all the way around your pattern.
Next sew along the inside of where the foam is, you have to do this because the glue will lose grip at some point in time, So you are just sewing the denim together this does not take long at all.
If you can keep somewhat of a straight line you will be fine.
Once you sew your denim together you are ready to fold over your sides and sew them together.
Use the 1/4-inch over hang first. This way you can slide in your pistol and check to see how it fits most of the time it’s lose and if so just move the needle over just a little and re-sew.
Repeat this step until your pistol fits inside your holster the way you want it too.
I was able to make two holsters in about two hours.
As far as the clip goes I had to hand sew it on. But, if you know for sure where you want the clip to go before you make your fold you can sew it on at that time.
I have been very happy with the two I made. So far they have held up better than the Uncle Mikes holster I bought. Plus they blend in with the blue jeans I wear if any part of the holster should be showing.
I was needing a inside the pants holster and could not find one that was total under the waist line of my belt or pants.
This just works or me. I hope this helps others out there making there own holster.
As I got alot of ideas from this forum on making leather holster and kydex holster.
