Small Santa Pouch Template 1.0.0

About This File

Here's a little template I've been working on this year to fill my need to carry my I.D. and Naughty-Or-Nice-o-meter, 
It yields a 4" x 5.5" Santa Satchel that sits squarely on a 4" belt (or hangs a little past the bottom of a 3.5" belt).
Basic instructions are printed on the template (which should be adequate for anyone with a little sewing or leatherwork experience), but I can write up a more involved tutorial if needed!
I've only finished one prototype so far, but it survived my first season pretty well!

Thanks so much...I have been playing around with adding this feature. Mow I just need to find some time to try.

My pleasure! I'm just glad somebody else sees the use for it.

I'd seen a lot of lovely oversized satchels/pouches for Santa, but I don't like how that alters the clean lines of a thick belt across a red suit, so I wanted something a little tidier-looking.

I've got my ankle surgery next week, so I might churn out a couple satchels for sale while I'm stuck on crutches.

I like this idea a lot.  Any chance you can take a picture of the back of the satchel without it on the belt so I can see how the belt loops function?  Thanks.

 

P.S. I hope the surgery went well and the crutches are no longer necessary!?!

Thanks, Doug! I breezed through the surgery and only wound up on crutches for about 2 days (and for short spurts for a few days after that...mostly because I was too stubborn to take the time off, and concrete workshop floors are unkind to freshly-shaved joints.)

Hopefully you can tolerate the poor-quality cell-phone pic. The 2 layers of leather/pleather are doubled up so the smooth side faces out on both sides--that way it's not as prone to snagging on belt edges. First, the upper edge is stitched "upside-down" to the exterior of the back panel, then the strap is folded over itself and the lower edge is bound onto the stitching that lashes the side panel to the back panel. (Gaudy embellishment optional :santa_wink:)

My first couple prototypes had 2 single-ply straps placed an equal distance from the centre, but I found that--because of its relatively small size--that wasn't really necessary to prevent "leaning", so I ditched that in favour of a central, 2-ply strap from prototype 3 onward. (There are no changes necessary to the template, however; only in assembly procedure.)
