Protect Your Gun / Photo Tutorial

You can make any cover of any size for many tools or other important things.

 

This is a general instruction of how you can protect your gun.

I’ve started with two types of fabric, fleece for the inside and a strong type of fabric for the outside, just sewing them together and creating a diamond pattern on the outside of the cover.

It is also possible to use any type of fabric, colour and thickness and any type of zipper for this.

Second part is how you sew the zipper.
On my product a continuous plastic zipper with two sliders is used.
It is very important to get the correct place for both sides of the zipper, Left and Right.
It would be helpful to make some marks where exactly the middle is and a quarter of the way up the length of the cover as well, following this part of the progress is not important though.

I’m a bit obsessed with hiding all zipper tapes, so you can see my obsession with this progress.

Hiding zipper with bias binding will give you a neat and tidy product, but this is a lenghty process.

Next step would be sewing the inner pockets, again this is upto you, size, materials etc.

You can use webbing for this last step to make the shoulders straps or any other type of carrying straps.

Now is your work done and I’m sure you can be proud of your resulting product.

The history of Kirkstall Abbey, Yorkshire, begins with its foundation in 1147, when a group of twelve monks from Fountains Abbey, under the guidance of their prior, Alexander, colonised the site at Barnoldswick. In 1152 the community relocated to the present site of Kirkstall, and remained here until the dissolution of the abbey in 1539.

Like most other Cistercian abbeys in England, the twelfth century was for Kirkstall a time of growth and expansion, when the community developed the abbey precinct and acquired lands and holdings. From the thirteenth century patronage waned and the history of the abbey was marked by highs and lows. The Kirkstall monks, like their Cistercian contemporaries, were embroiled in legal wrangling over their own lands and rights, they were caught up in business relating to the state and the Order, and were affected by social and economic problems that swept the country such as the Black Death, wars and taxation. Nevertheless, the monks made a significant contribution in the areas of trade, industry and technological innovation.

English Cistercian Monastery – Roche Abbey

Beautifully set in a valley landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century, the most striking feature of this Cistercian abbey is the eastern end of its church, built in the new Gothic style c. 1170

It has one of the most complete ground plans of any English Cistercian monastery, laid out as excavated foundations. The story of the pillaging of Roche, recorded by the son of an eyewitness, is among the most vivid documents of the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
