Refs would be pretty handy.

Generally though, a holster can be made by having a belt, and sewing a loop large enough for your weapon to fit through, but small enough for it to hook on comfortably onto the belt.

Without refs, that's how a basic one is made. Sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error. If your weapons are too heavy and the belt is too loose, then it will fall down/come undone. If the hook isn't sewn on well enough, and your weapon is, again, heavy, it could end up ripping (this has happened to me >.<
