I've seen webbing dipped in silicone or something similar rubber like material. My main issue with it is consistency, which didn't seem to be that controllable.
I guess you could technically mold something onto it, but it sounds very time consuming and expensive compared to sewing on an additional piece.

Can't remember the exact price for the software - about 200-300EUR.

Yes I have a custom X-box pattern for sewing elastic to leg strap webbing in 38x30mm.
Haven't had the time nor urgent need to program other patterns.
What I can do once back from holidays is post somewhere the procedure for transfering patterns to the bartacker.

Sounds amazing BOOTCAT! Really interested to re-open this topic. What's the price you paid for PS-300? Or you choose a "free alternative" solution?

I am working on a project just now ,I am not happy with the finish in the 1 inch( doubled) webbing tabs.
I was thinking of making a heated mould/pattern that would finish the tabs better , has any body tried this or has any experience of heat forming or finishing webbing without stitching on end plastic tabs?

Are you trying to surface mount the pocket to the sleeve or is the pocket a panel of the sleeve?

Surface mounting the pocket - taking the pockets off a bdu top and sewing it onto the sleeve.

I'm not making anything for profit - simply making my own tops.

I'm using several 4 drawer clear plastic storage "towers". They are stackable and large enough to organize my zippers, plastic hardware, metal hardware, hook and loop, scrap fabric, and whatever misc stuff I have laying around. The downside is that they aren't very sturdy, at least 2 of the ones I have aren't. I don't know where they came from as I found them in a dumpster and just bleached and washed them.
