Home Tack Chinks/Chaps Designs Patterns Saddles About Us

Leathercraft Pattern Selections:
In response to the many requests that I receive for help with patterns, I have begun copying basic chap, saddle bag, and tapadero patterns and writing detailed instructions on them so that other leatherworkers can succeed in making fine projects.   As time permits, I will add leather patterns and post descriptions of them in this site.   Please review my descriptive list of the patterns that are presently available and go to and print the PATTERN ORDER BLANK.  Select the patterns that fit your needs, indicate your choices on the order blank, total the dollars, add the respective shipping, and mail it along with your check for the total to:  Klenda Custom Saddles, P.O. Box 2166, Meeker, Colorado 81641.  I will mail your patterns right out.  
Please e-mail bob@klendasaddlery.com or call 970 878 5382 with any questions that you have.            
Thank you,

Bob Klenda
