    Oh wow, I didn't realise how old this thread was! You did a great job using this tutorial MacRory! I might try this some day; I'd like a new belt. What kind of wood did you use for the pouches??

    I'm going to try to make my pouch frames out of 1/8" reinforced plastic, to make them functional. Hoping, anyways. :-P

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    I am having problems with the 3M spray glue... is it normal that the pouch flaps un-glue themselves after a day on the counter (the stitching is not done yet on those flaps). Could I have a glue issue here or is it just because it is actually the stitching that keeps them closed ??

    The glue I use is 3M's Rubber and Vinyl Spray Adhesive 80.

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    You bring up a good point. Maybe I should explain that a bit...

    The glue is merely a way to 'stay' the vinyl while you're sewing (since you can't use pins); it's not meant as an actual adhesive.

    Personally, I did them one at a time: spray, then sew; spray, then sew, etc.

    I actually use superglue, the bottle with the brush in it. Just paint a line of glue, fold it, put a couple books on it, 10min later its ready. Just do a little at a time. It holds ver well, so you can sew the sides.

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    Ah, that would explain why I couldn't make them stay glued...

    Now at least, I know I'm not completely crazy...

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    Should this be a sticky or in the Wiki??
    This was the original pattern made by Batninja, and everyone is using this now, no?

    Wow... This has been here three years and this is the first time I noticed it! VERY cool info and very useful for anyone wanting to make a belt of their own! The only thing I would add is the stitch to the top and bottom rear of the flap!

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    Hello everyone! I'm new here but I am super excited to finally make my own Fett armor.

    Anyway, my question: I've seen some costumes that have black snaps on some of the pouches and some that don't. Can anyone comment on the authenticity of this?

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    Already started on making the belt...quick question though:

    I took me FOREVER hand sawing those wooden blocks in home depot (they werent balsa wood) and I only got about 6 done. Was there a much quicker way of sawing these to clean cut blocks?

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    I order the Balsa wood in 30" lengths (gives you about 9 pouch innards) from this site:
    www.specializedbalsa.com

    Then I cut the blocks with one of these.

    Re: BatNinja's Ammo Pouch Tutorial

    Can you use this tutorial if you were using leather instead ? I want to make mine from leather and also make the pockets useable . Is there any tricks or suggestions anybody can give for using leather . Keeping in mind i haven't touched our sewing machine since i finished my other suit over a year ago .

    the belt with the snaps is the ESB version, the one without snaps is ROTJ and SE
