I qualified for an upgrade telephone, so I took the plunge and asked for an Android-Based device. Since it was quite expensive, I wanted the most protective cover available. The salesman offered me their best "Holster". After I'd paid for it and it was being installed, I realized it wasn't actually a holster, but a clip. I don't like clips because the phone can easily fall out without your knowledge. I opted to keep this one though, because it also used a heavy case around the entire phone; both polycarbonate plastic and an outer shell of rubber. Thus, I needed to find (or make) a holster myself.
A project was born!
On a recent visit to Lancaster, PA, I found a fabric store selling leather pieces for $1 each. I picked up two pieces about 2 square feet each. The stiffer of these two became the heart of this project. Below is the cutting pattern for the main piece of the holster:
1 Pc Leather (stiff) 11" x 6" - Main body
2 Pc Leather 2.25" x 1/25" -Sides
1 Pc Leather (heavy) 3" x 1.75" (belt Loop)
3 feet Leather Lacing
