Last year I made the vest you see him wearing. It is nothing special it is made of felt and I sewed a star and stitched sheriff on it. Luckily it still fit. I also made Kate an outfit but didn't get to this year. However my mom made this adorable outfit that fit the occasion. I ended up whipping together a holster for Josh so he could carry his gun. Here is how i did it. I took his gun and laid it on some brown fleece- i would have preferred felt since it is a little stiffer but it was just for the day so it did okay.
Next I cut the bottom piece of the holster. Using the gun as my guide.
Then I cut the top piece.
Then I sewed it together with silver thread using a decorative stitch.
Finally I cut two slits for it to put the belt through.
Here it is ready to go!
Have a ROOTIN' TOOTIN' GOOD DAY!!
