Looking for a hatchet holster

Leather preferred. Toggle closure rather than metal snaps preferred also, but I'm not really picky.

Check with the mfg?  Make/have one made to fit?  Check the home centers or hardware stores?

I'd probably go with a Kydex model myself, check with knife sheath mfgs.
Yes, I'm a physician.  No, I'm not YOUR physician.  Nothing I say here is medical advice.

Do I treat Glocks like I treat my lawn mowers?  No, I treat them worse.  I treat my defensive weapons like my fire extinguishers and smoke detector - annual maintenance and I expect them to work when needed

This.  If you want leather with a toggle closure, you should be able to fabricate a quite serviceable one yourself.

Edited to add the missing word...

A good heavy grade of leather and some barge cement, AKA "leather glue." 
Early in my Mountain Man phase I made myself a sheathe for my Green River knife; I cut two pieces for the outside, and then a third to go between them that was the same outside shape but cut out in the silhouette of the knife.  Glued them together with the barge cement, put fancy dome-headed carpet tacks on the outside for class.   :D  I'll see if I can't track the thing down and post a photo. 

For a hatchet sheathe, you probably want the top and back open, so what you may want to do is to simply use a pencil (NOT PEN!  Ask me how I know...  :-[) to mark a dot every quarter-inch or so, use a drill to make a hole at each dot, and then do a whip stitch with your preferred water-resistant cord or thread.  I have one of these "somewhere" also...

Or you can make one out of kydex.  (Google search results, inspired by a thread on the Shooter's Northwest board talking about making holsters and knife sheathes out of kydex.)
