    Several of the local Tack & western wear shops I've hit sell whips. Since its bolo cord, perhaps you can consider using those for a kids girth belt, with the proper staining. For the holster, the same sell girth belts for horses when cut up may easily provide you the material for a holster. I would think this would be a cheap way to go unless someone on here has leftover bolo cord.

    Fella, this may be the blind leading the blind but yes the bolo is the interwoven cord used for the girth belt. It seems a dark brown is the standard color and if I cant make a score over here, i think I'll revisit some of those Tack shops. Those whips were in the range of 6mm and they sell leather by the sheet for saddle gear but you have to stain it. In that, I'm afraid I wouldnt be able to match the color. I'm quite certain there are other with more experience to weigh in on this as well as a template. I'm not sure who makes what around here as I'm in the learning curve!
