    Batninja, Amazing thread, so helpful and easy to understand, I'm not by far the most skilled or artistic person in the world, well probably not even in my block, but today I have made a belt and 8 flaps, the belt and 2 flaps are at my friends house waiting to be sewn (wish I could sew) and hopefully tomorrow I will work in the body of the pouch, thinking of probably using a styrofoam block is that the material packing peanuts is made of?, and probably I'll try to make a couple functional I don't need them all to be functional, just a place to put the car keys... Thanks again man, you're the reason I'll have an ammo belt and pouches better than I ever thought I would, I'll post pics as soon as I finish the whole thing.... Thanks again....

    Here's an update, the belt is ready!!! eyelets and everything, thanks to my friend Jasmine for the sewing part, that's what brings all the life to the belt, just found golden eyelets so will have to weather them. The flaps are coming along too, they look gorgeous. I have no tools to work with wood, so I'm working with that green foam they use to stick flowers in those floral arrangements, don't know how it's going to hold the hot glue as is a very porous material, but I'll let you guys know. Now if I only knew how to upload pics I'll show you, but I don't know how to insert from an URL how can I browse to my folders to get my pics inserted here???...

    Wow! I hope you don't get sick of getting compliments because that is AWESOME. This was exactly what I was looking for to be able to start mine! Approximately how much time and money went into it? Perfect winter project, thanks for the great tutorial!

    Just bought all my supplies and I am about to get rolling. Thanks for pulling this together and supplying it to all of us!

    For the wood, I just bought a standard 2x4 from Home Depot since the physical measurements of a 2x4 are actually 1.5" x 3.5".

    -I am going to cut of the remaining height from the 2x4 to get the needed height for each pouch.
    -Then cut the angled cut for the top edge of the pouch in 1 pass rather than each angle cut for each individual pouch.

    Sorry to bring this up from the depths, but I wanted to show off my ESB belt that I made using this tutorial. I feel it came out fantastic, and I would have NEVER been able to accomplish this on my own. You are amazing for posting this up BatNinja. Thank you.

    Really loving this tutorial right now, pairing this with Strumfett and RafalFett's templates is going great. Making an ROTJ SE belt and cut the wooden block and am working on cutting the vinyl, looking at these 14 pouches I've got quite a lot of work ahead of me XD

    This is an awesome tutorial. I am going to use the 2x4 idea as well. May I ask where the link is for the cutout pattern for the vinyl?

    Thanks again,D

    It's in the first post. It's not to scale. You just draw it to scale. Then cut it out, put it on your scanner/printer and reduce the size to 96-97% depending on how tight you want to pull the vinyl.

    TK409's site might have a little closer dimensions and a template. Take a look at that.

    Otherwise, BatNinja's tutorial works just fine.

    This is awesome I cant believe it isn't stickied yet!

    **I just drew up the patterns to scale, if it is okay with the OP I can post them up when I get home so you can just print and play.**

    Blind guy questions, since I can't see the tutorial images themselves:

    1. I'm a little uncertain based off the title - does this thread contain the info needed to make an entire ammo belt, or just the pouches for the belt?

    2. Would any kind soul be willing to provide me with written instructions for the tutorial contained in this thread? I know that's a lot to ask, but I'd like to discuss the project with my grandma, who may be willing to lend me her sewing prowess - but she's not the most tech savvy and I'd rather discuss it with her in person before just telling her to come to this thread and look at the tutorials. I know it's probably a lot to ask, but I'd be truly grateful if someone was willing to do this. I'm thinking of something like the written instructions in LadySewforus' neck seal tutorial (which I hope to put to good use very soon).

    Joseph,
    This is mainly a thread for how to make the ammo pouches themselves. There are two schools of thought on this belt; functional and non functional. Some folks like functional due to lighter weight and having little pockets to put batteries, snacks, whatever will fit in there. Others like non-functional because they might be easier/faster to build with less skill involved. Personally, I'm going with the non-functional 2X4 method, but I'm going to drill out the blocks to make them lighter, yet still hold the form. This tutorial is for the non-functional, wrapping vinyl around a wood block variant. Basically you have a wood block in the shape of the pouch, then a piece of vinyl cut from a pattern wraps around the block covering the left and right sides and is glued in place. Then another piece of vinyl which has non-functional stitching in it is wrapped around the glued vinyl to cover the front, bottom, back and top, and also forms the front flap.

    The belt itself is a single ply leather or vinyl belt with stitching on it. Depending on whether you're doing an ROTJ or ESB build you'll have some grommets installed in the built as well. Two grommets for ESB and I don't remember how many for ROTJ. Strumfett has an awesome ammo belt thread that Rafalfett helped with, so it's pretty much belt gospel!

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/t...mplates-47515/

    There is some kind of html weird coding going on there so everything looks kind of disorganized.

    I hope this helps, I know it's not a step by step, but I'm chasing a 4 yr old around today while mommy is at work!

    Good luck,
    Main

    Thanks so much, Mainst69 - that definitely does help. It gives me a much better sense of the project as a whole - for example, I knew that wood blocks formed the base for the "pouches", but I didn't realize that the vinyl covering the pouches was in two pieces.

    So, with the belt itself, is it as simple as cutting the long piece of vinyl or leather (I'm guessing 44" x 2" or something like that), and then doing a single row of stitching around the edge, and then adding in the grommets in appropriate numbers and spacing? That seems pretty easy. (I'll check out that link you shared, too - maybe it'll answer that for me).
