Absolutely terrifying to me I'm afraid (here in London it wouldn't go down well) but fabric from a "reuse-recycle area" at the dump sounds truly brilliant - wish we had that here.

For those of you who are scared of guns don't be.

I can't speak for the other posters on this topic (or even other non-US Craftsters) but I wasn't saying I found guns terrifying; I was saying that was my feeling about the cozy itself. I do however love the fabric!

The handguns we have are airsoft toys, mainly for the Battlestar Galactica costumes - your handgun tutorial would suit their shape - now to find some cheesy spaceship material....

Silver lame?  Cheesy

Seriously, this is AWESOME. I too am a female gun owner and I'm glad I'm not the only one. Your cozy fits it perfectly! You did an amazing job! Smiley

I'm afraid that's toaster talk, my friend!  (Toaster = those big frakin' silver robots).  But greenish shiny vinyl done up like a flight suit.... this could work...  with patches, even???......(stares off into space...

Wow... this is hilarious because I considered making a gun cozy for this challenge.  Not because I'm a gun-owner, but because of a long-running joke between me and my boyfriend.  In a town near us, there's a building that contains both a yarn store, and a gun store.  Dan, who knits, said that he should go buy a gun, then buy some yarn to knit a holster.  I replied that if it's made of yarn, it's not a holster, it's a cozy.

Nice job.  Smiley

I absolutely adore this!  The fabric is so awesome, and is really funny because of the phrase.  It cracked me up when someone said that in her mind, all Americans have guns like this Cheesy.

When I was little I thought it was because with 3 daughters my daddy needed to do 'boy stuff' (we also learned how to change flats and oil, and I even rebuilt a motor with my dad)  but as a 31 year old woman I realize he didn't want to raise helpless girls and I cannot express enough thanks to him for that. 

And kudos to your dad.  I work in a popular higher-end bar district, and it's almost a rule that every girl gets escorted to her car.  Eventually, I'd like to get a gun (I don't want to wait for an escort to go grocery shopping! Angry), but I finally got a tiny stun-gun.  It doesn't hurt much, but it looks scary when you push the button!

I'm really inspired to make a cozy for it now so it doesn't get so beat up in my purse.  Hmmm....

 Hello Craftsters! 
I just joined this board so that I could tell you all how much I have laughed and enjoyed this awesome craft and the comments.  There is a link to this page on one of my hunting boards.  I am one of the big white crazy gun guys you were referring to.  (Not really crazy, just very enthusiastic!)  You gals are definitely cool.  I would be happy to trace a template for anyone who wants one for just dang near any gun type you can think of.  Just "shoot" me an e-mail at: hoosierbuck (at) comcast.net   Smiley

Take care-
