Craft yourself a suit of armor for Halloween!

Leather Armor Patterns

Use our expertly designed leather armor patterns to take your crafting abilities to the next level!  Take advantage of years of Prince Armory’s design experience to start crafting your adventure.  Video tutorials will guide you through every step of the crafting process and demonstrate countless tips and techniques you can use in your projects.

  • Complete Series Bundles

Most of our patterns belong to a series, with each one focusing on teaching techniques at differing skill levels from absolute beginner (Warrior) to advanced (Elven). Each design theme represents a cohesive system that looks, and functions together perfectly with other parts of the series. But it doesn’t stop there!  These design themes are also modular allowing you to pick and choose components across multiple themes. At the moment there are 4 complete themes either complete or in progress and more will come in time. Get the bundles for the best value when you buy into a complete theme and get many matching bonus items like accessories (pouches etc.) as they are ready!  As another huge bonus the tutorials for each series are specifically designed to teach you different aspects of the art of leather crafting and armor making.  So you will be equipped with the knowledge to make your armor project a one of a kind masterpiece!

Get ready to level up your leather and armor crafting abilities!

How should I choose?

When deciding between bundles and buying separately, there is no right or wrong answer; but there are a few things that may help you decide. The general recommendation is to go for a bundle, unless you just want to test out one or two patterns to start out, or if you want to mix and match components across multiple themes. 

Benefits For Bundles

  • Save with incredible discounts!
  • Get new bonus content as it is added to the theme!
  • Great for students ready to make a full or partial suit!
  • Get the best value from the complete video series where each tutorial teaches new tips and techniques.

Benefits For Buying Separately

  • Pick just the parts you want!
  • Great for students just looking to try one or two pieces!

Pattern and video made it fairly simple to make the breastplate, and I have to say I have found I really enjoy working with leather.

Tons of options to find a perfect fit for any project! I was able to easily shorten the length on the strap style I wanted and it came out great as a set of buckles for the Prince Armory Greaves!

I used this pattern to give me a base for a greaves project with a bit of a different design. It helped me a lot to get the basic shape and size right so I could add custom detail. So yes, the picture i uploaded is certainly not a 1:1 fantasy greaves version but I think you can still see a lot of similiarities. So even if you are not really into the the explicit design of the greaves there is still a lot of valueable information you can extract from the pattern which saved me quite some time and nerves. As a pattern newbie I still tried to create one from scratch at first and was close to quitting when I started to use this pattern for reference I finally started to see some progress. I created a paper mockup from this pattern and started drawing wild shapes onto it eventually resulting in the greaves on the picture.
