    Hey BatNinja that is a great belt. One question for you. Is that the Dark Brown vinyl or the chocolate colored vinyl? It is hard to tell in the pics.

    The brown I used was called Cadbury, and I found it at Hancock Fabrics. I'll look up the SKU tomorrow, but it is a normally stocked item for the HF down here in Texas.

    Looks like you should be able to make these pouches functional too, use small rare earth magnets from radio shack for keeping them closed.

    The core of these pouches is a solid block of Balsa wood, so adding magnets to the pouch covers doesn't raise the functionality. The main reason I didn't make these functional is that the Fett costume in general has four larger pouches in which to keep stuff, two on the thighs and two on the belt. I didn't see the benefit in making eight small functional pouches. What could we keep in there that we couldn't put in the larger pouches?

    BTW Great Craftsmanship..:thumbup PM SENT.


    no kidding eh? with great resources like this people can stop looking and researching and just get right to it. unless they like the whole trial error wasted materials kind of thing.

    but for the mid-budget fetts, this is the answer.

    great job BatNinja, this works terrifically

    That is a GREAT tutorial, one that I will attempt this weekend. (hopefully)
    I have one question though: Which is correct on your diagram, the dimensions or the proportions? When the Height of the block is enlarged to 3", the base depth is closer to 1.75" (1.7269). You have listed it as 1.5" Also, what is the width measurement? Any input would be smashing! Thanks

    NOTE: These images are not drawn to scale!

    Shinobi, the wood block is 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square, and the height is 3".

    Hope this helps!

    Great tutorial BN, thanks alot. I already started with the pouches too. Will post pics when finished.

    What are your dimensions for the belt itself. Also would need location for the grommets and the rectangular stiching details.

    I gues you connect the belt with velcro, right ?

    Thanks alread

    Here's what I came up with for the belt dimensions. Again, these may or may not be movie-accurate, but they work for my purposes:



    I hope this helps!

    Can these pouches actually be used to store stuff rather than just hold the wooden 'shaping' blocks?

    There are those hobbyists who make functional pouches; they start with empty boxes of aluminum, plastic, etc. As I mentioned above, I did not see the need to make these functional, as there are four additional larger pouches to keep stuff in.

    Ah righto - do you reckon your templates would work if making the pouches (to be used as pouches) out of a thicker leather?

    More? What's missing?

    I do need to mention that I've updated (although I don't have pics yet) a couple of things. Instead of normal all-purpose sewing thread, I use upholstery thread; it's thicker, and makes the pouches appear more 'leathery'. You can find upholstery thread in most fabric stores.

    Also, after studying the MoM pics a little more, I'm moved the pouch stitching a little closer to the edge of the flap. The width between the stitch and the edge of the pouch about 1/8th of an inch. I'll try to get pics up later.

    I did something very similar with my ammo belt pouches...
    except I am not forming them around blocks, they will be fully functional.
    Here is one of the very first pictures I took before I began construction.
    Right now I am almost done, I just need to do the stitching on the flap and attach the belt loops.

    Once I finish sewing and gluing them all together I will line them with a firm poster board covered with a black felt, this way they will retain their shape during wear and storage.

    I just want to thank BatNinja. I made my son an Ammo Pouch for $5. I could not have done it without your tutorial. Here is a pic:



    It's not great because I made it and have never sewed in my life. But it will look awesome on my 8 year old. I'm not going to post pics of him wearing it because he's not getting it untill his Birthday in July.

    Thanks for the tutorial Batninja! I worked quite awhile on my belt this weekend and should finish up the *belt* portion tonight. Here are some pics.

    Here's the virtually finished product missing brass set of eyelets in the back and black push buttons on some of the pockets on some of the compartments.





    The tutorial is what made it happen. You're awesome!
