I've googled and can't find a pattern to sew a soft case for my recurve bow. It should be easy to figure, but that's not something I'm good at. Hoping to sew one with an outside pocket.
Thanks!

I'm thinking that the case would be a long rectangle, right? The bow could slide in from one of the narrow ends with some type of closure to fasten it shut. Given that, take the length and width measurements of your bow, add a bit of ease so the fit isn't too tight, plus seam allowances and cut two rectangles of your fabric. Cut one of the rectangles longer to make a fold over flap with velcro or some other means to close the case OR you could insert a zipper into one short end. Freehand the pocket you want and sew it onto one of the rectangles before sewing the two long pieces together.

My husband has a couple soft gun cases his mother made of flannel for him many years ago. She made the two pieces of fabric extra long and sewed a long shoestring into the seam at the open end. My husband just folds the long end over the gun and ties the string tightly. That provides coverage for the firearm but the fabric is just heavy flannel so the actual protection is minimal.

This may be way off from what you were looking for but thought I'd share it.

In trying to help you, your post here is number four in a Google search.

There are a couple of leatherwork patterns for a compound bow case that I found. Could that be adapted for a recurve bow?

Good luck!

Do you think it's really too curved, to fit into a rifle case? If not, maybe you could use this one?

So I probably shouldn't type a message after working 12 hour days for a week. I really need it for a compound bow. It's my daughter that has the recurve but I would take a pattern for that too to make her a girly girly one :)

I could probably make this work! Just change the shape a little and move the straps.
