Thats great work, wish mine would've turned out the same results! Will have to have a go using your tutorial!! Thanks for posting.
Wait! if u glue the fabric to the wood block...that means u can't actually USE the pouch!
Thanks for making the tutorial, just wonder why it's not been stickied yet for the do-it-yourself-ers.
Outstanding mate! You've just saved me about $180 bucks. Thanks
Great job too...
If your glue comes undone, you can also use a tack or nail to secure the leather/pleather.
Awesome work. Now i can make my own ESB belt
I've looked everywhere for that presser foot... Hancocks has never heard of it, Joann's doesn't carry anything like that that fits on my (very standard) Singer machine. Best I've found is $15 shipped on Ebay. $4 sound much better to me . If anyone has a source please post or PM me. Thnx
You don't need a presser foot. I have the $80 Wal-Mart Singer machine and as long as you take your time and put a leather needle on your machine it will be ok. My girlfriend's 1/8 thick real leather belt popped apart. I rethreaded the belt through the buckle and doubled the belt back onto itself, then sewed it together. Just take your time and don't rush it.
So I started sewing with my metal foot, and for the first 12 in. the stitching was uniform but after that the vinyl began to catch and the stitches ran together. I was able to get it to work reasonably well by yanking the material through the back of the machine to help feed it but the stitching was still a bit erratic. Luckily I found a can of Silicon Spray Lube in my cabinet that did the trick beautifully! I just sprayed a little on some scrap fabric and wiped it over the vinyl. Worked like a charm.
Sorry if this is not posted in the correct place, but here are some other measures which, IMHO, are more accurate than the ones posted. The cut corners are an approximate measure, some are a bit lower, some others are a bit wider but never more than 1/16" plus:

Thanks a lot for all the help I think my belt turned out pretty nice.

Is that fabric???
Yep its like moleskin like stuff or something it was really cheap.
But it turned out really nice anyway...
bat ninja. this is awsome. i am defenatley gonna make one of these!!!!
Why are all my local Hobby shops sold out of larger Balsa blocks?!?! Anyone have a favorite online place they order from?
I used this tutorial, and I love the way my belt came out! Thanx Batninja for posting this !
So is the measurement of the belt really 2"? or 2 1/2" like bat ninjas?
Here's my belt! Just finished using this awesome tutorial...
It kinda looks like boba's belt after getting out of the sarlacc
Great Tutorial! It helps a lot.
