Wasn't sure where to put this question..If it's in the wrong place I'm sure a helpful mod will move it lol!

Rather than pay exorbitant amounts for various bits ..Plus it's much more fun and satisfying...I have decided to have a go at making them. I want leg holsters for at least five of my troop and a double leg holster for one of them. Plus various shoulder holsters and scabbards for knives etc.

So I've decided to use the faux leather material .. Sometimes called pleather.

Anybody got any experience of using this stuff ?? I'm mainly looking for tips on the best glue to use, but any tips will be gratefully received.

Thanks in anticipation....

Yep, I always used the smallest dabs of super glue Chris to bind joins. Material glue is good, but under tension being done up. It had the tendency to release again. Super glue held fast so I stayed with it.
It also reacts with the material, makes it hot to the touch so it's quick too.
