Thanks for the input I tried to follow lord Effinghams pattern the
best I could.
The Plates are 16 guage and the Lacing came from Hancock Fabrics as
Per Lord Effinghams suggestion. It seems to hold up very well to
passing through quite a few holes.
The smaller plates in the knee area are stiched to the fabric with
the mail being allowed to float free so far it has held up and doesnt
seem to be affected by rolling around on the carpet.
I padded the underside with some cotton quilting material and then
covered it with some plain red cotton cloth.the red border around the
edge is just bias tape that I sewed on last.
I am working getting the pictures of my tsubo sode posted I am still
wondering if I should pad the back of them as I just have a piece of
leather to keep the plates from rubbing.
