Introduction: Packing Heat
Ever find yourself eating out to find that the food has no flavor? A cafeteria? Airline food? Need some Tabasco sauce to spice things up, but don't have any handy?
That is all finished now. You can bring favor with you with this holster for your own Tabasco sauce. The instructions here will accommodate the small, but useful, 2 fl. oz. bottle of Tabasco. That makes it acceptable for bringing with you on an airplane trip and add the needed flavor to your flight food.
So grab some scrap fabric, ribbon, and a couple hours to prevent another flavorless meal.
A completed holster can be purchased at Etsy.com.

Step 1: Gather Materials
Simple scrap material can be used. Measurements are approximate.
-11" x 3 1/2" strip of fabric
-4" ribbon or webbing (adjustment strap from backpack will accommodate)
Mark the center of the fabric.
Material used in pictures were purchased from ParaGear:
Fabric: 500 denier red Cordura Item W9345
Ribbon: 1" Square Weave Item W9860
Step 2: Sew Ribbon Into Top Hem
-Align ribbon flush with top edge and centered over the center mark
-Fold approximately 1/4" of top with ribbon towards wrong side of fabric
-Fold a second time to create hem
-Sew down hem with ribbon wrapped inside
Step 3: Finish Belt Loop
-Fold 1/4" of trailing edge of ribbon
-Sew down trailing edge
Step 4: Add Bottom Hem
-Fold 1/4" of bottom edge of fabric
-Fold again to form hem
Step 5: Create Bag
-Fold in half with wrong side out
-Sew sides approximately 1/4" from edge
--Too much left on edge will make bag too narrow to fit bottle
--Lock stitches near mouth to reinforce mouth
Step 6: Create Square Bottom
(Review pictures in depth as this is difficult to describe in words.)
-Fold bottom of bag to create point from existing corner of the bag
-Stitch across point approximately 3/4" from corner
-Repeat folds and stitches on opposite corner
Step 7: Turn Bag Inside-Out
The sewing is done. Turn the bag inside out. A pen can help push out the corners.
Step 8: You're Finished
Everything is done. Attach to your belt and add Tabasco.
Now you're Packing Heat.
