Well we're getting there I suppose. The stitches are in and preliminary fitment is good, the holster won't release the gun without a strong deliberate tug... which could be good or bad according to which expert ya listen to. I put some border stamping along the stitch lines that I hoped would draw attention away from the retarded stitching but I think it only highlights them worse. I will trim and edgecoat it and seal it and then I am done. You can tell it's an amateur job... but not bad for a first effort by a harelipped retard, HAR HAR HAR! I catalogued the mistakes and hopefully the next one will be much better.
It's better than anything I could do, Glen.ReplyDelete
Much better than I could ever do. Nice job!ReplyDelete
Why is it that every craftsman sees and feels badly about the flaws in their work? My wife turns out these gorgeous quilts and then whines about the mistakes. I keep trying to tell her that no one else will ever notice if she didn't point them out. If a line of stitching isn't perfectly straight, that just means that it wasn't done by a computer driven machine.ReplyDelete
It has been said that the Hopi rug weavers place a deliberate flaw in one corner of every rug as a reminder that nothing made by human hands is perfect, and that perfection is of the realm of the divine.
Your holster looks just fine to me, but I'll admit I have an engineers point of view. I'm not so much about cosmetics as I am for function and utility. Keep any eye out for your tight retention to loosen up over time and wear. Other than that, good on ya Glen!
Looks good from here.ReplyDelete
