    Apr 8, 2014, 9:02 PM - Boba Fett Belt as ESB for dmount #1

    Hey guys, wanted to share the latest commission I finished for dmount. This belt is made of veg-tanned leather and custom dyed with my own mix of oil dyes. The pouches are non-functional and built around wood blocks. For convenience, the hanging pouch velcro is color coded so you always know which pouches go on which side. Once again I'd like to thank StrumFett and RafalFett for the templates that allowed me to make this so accurate and dmount for hiring me! Thanks for looking!

    How difficult is it to sew leather? I am thinking of doing it myself, but the image of trying to sew it makes me want to use faux leather.

    You will need a very hearty and strong machine. My old Singer Simple can sew through leather but the issue is the feed dogs are not able to feed the leather through at even increments to create even stitches.

    I've been doing these on a Bernina Virtuoso that I got secondhand. About 10 years ago it was a $1500 machine and I still had to do a lot of experimenting to get it to work properly on this veg-tanned leather. It's basically at its operating limit to handle this stuff. Now, chrome-tanned leather (what handbags and shoes and stuff are made of) would be a different story...
