    Do a google search on helmet fronts making. There are several helmet companies which has a program to design fronts pieces.

    You also can check with a leather or tack supplier about the cost of cow hide and the necessary leather tools needed.

    It's basically leatherwork - any resource on that will help you out.

    Probably your biggest challenge will be the lettering.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
