Slide of the Month-Cowboy Chaps

January 2024

Time to make: .5 hours

Finishing: 1 hour
Original design:  Jeff Springer

Originally cowboy chaps are meant to be worn over pants to protect the wearer from the thorny chaparral bush when riding a horse.  In current times, you could find chaps being used for everything from the Rodeo to motorcycle riders.

A quick an easy slide to make! Made from a leather chair sample, I cut out the pattern from the original Side of the Month article. Next I punched holes for the slide loop and for the outside edge of the legs. Next I used some paint pens to decorate the slide. Finally I used some brown cordage to join the loop in the back and to form the fringe on the legs. Might be a good Cub Scout project.
