    Make the pockets to fit the tools, that way they will be correct.
    Here are mine...

    Use the tutorial found on this site for the Patterson squeege http://forums.thedentedhelmet.com/bbt/sbw.htm to get the correct hieght for one of the tools, then make your pockets accordingly.

    I believe mark bradly's are too small. I used those demension and pocke tools did not fit. I made mine 5x4.5x7. I think 4.5x4x6(or 7) is provably closer to the true size. The real pocket squeezes the squeegie. I have a photo the shows the sqeegie in and chemical mixer in Fett's right pocket. These tools would not the Bradly pocket.

    Yes, MB's patterns are off, do as I stated above and use the TDH's Patterson squeege tutorial to make the tool it's correct size and you will be close to where you need to be.

    You make the pockets the size fit the tools to make them look like the real Fett's tool placement, that way you are guaranteed to an accurate size.

    That is what I did with mine as I shown you above.

    Ruffkintoy told me to build parts out of cardboard before you start cutting fabric, that way you know the right size and what would fit you.
