This is a pattern for Hera Syndulla’s boot holster. She has a unique holster shape that I researched and designed.
1. Size pattern and print.
2. Cut out patterns.
3. Trace patterns onto 3 mm sintra (https://amzn.to/2Bebw7B)
4. Using a heat gun, heat the corners where it is a dashed line on the pattern. Use a metal ruler (or something similar and sturdy) to curve and shape it into a box. Careful, it gets really hot!
5. Use hot glue to tack the front pattern onto the back pattern.
6. Weld the sintra together using SCIGRIP 16 Fast Set Cement (https://amzn.to/385SNXP).
7. Bondo and sand corners for a smooth surface.
8. Sand the back of the back pattern and cover a top and bottom section with painters’ tape. This will leave a good surface-area for placing industrial strength Velcro when attaching the holster to your boot.
9. Add some foam to the inside of the holster to cushion your blaster nice and snug so it doesn’t flop around (optional).
10. Spray paint and clear coat (make sure to use the same brand of spray paint and clear coat).
11. Attach to boot using industrial strength Velcro (https://amzn.to/3i9eNWe).

Please print the pattern to the scale that best fits your boot size and blaster. You may need to enlarge or shrink the pattern a bit.
I recommend tracing and cutting the pattern out on cardboard first and hot glue it together to see how it will fit for you. Then make adjustments as needed.
