    Cool, how much time would you say it took you to make one full pouch?? and how much time do you think it will take you to make one full belt?? Cant wait to see it.

    Well, started hand stitching one flap last night, and finished it on the train to work. Maybe 1 hour to stitch one pouch? I'm also getting used to using a sewing awl, so I might be able to speed it up a little.....with enough practice.

    Here it is! A finished vinyl prototype!!!! The stitching is a little rough, still trying to master the sewing awl. I made the core from styrofoam, but the actual pouches will probably be made from wood.
    And now I present....with and without flash!!!

    All of the stitching is finished on the leather one. Just need to make a core, and glue the entire thing together. I just used some brown leather, that I had lying around. It's a bit darker than the vinyl pouch you see.

    Here it is! I used styrofoam to do the upper slant, for the core, and wood for the lower half. Little did I know that the rubber cement would eat through the styrofoam!
    So the upper portions of the sides look a little mushy.
    Side by side with the vinyl one, from yesterday. The leather pouch is the darker of the two.

    will the real belt look like that as far as color goes on the leather or will it be lighter?

    The belt will be made with the same materials as the pouches.

    Not that I don't think that the slightly slanted thread pattern might not be more acurate, but I like the looks of your machine-sewn stitching better. I know you're still still getting the hang of the awl, but I didn't see anything wrong with your first attempt.

    That "first attempt" isn't stitching at all, it's basically an embossed pattern. Those are not real stitches.

    You could use that stitch pattern wheel as a guide and just stitch over it. Pretty much like using an overstitch wheel to lay out your stitches...perfectly spaced and lined up every time.

    I tried doing that, but the only leather that it works well with is the thick leather, in the first picture. The leather I'm using for the pouches is thinner, and softer. So the indentations that the tool makes, aren't as easy to see, and sometimes go away.

    I think that leather is either too dark or the stiching it too light (or maybe both). The vinyl has a more accurate color to it. Are you planning on getting a lighter shade of leather?

    Yes. I hope to go out and look at some next leather on this following Saturday. Until then, I'll probably prep some vinyl flaps.

    Seems like evil never sleeps! Tell me what you guys think of THIS one!



    Now that I've shown you what it is, let me tell you how it's made! Keep in mind, this is just a test alternative. I will still continue to make painted vinyl, and thinner leather pouches.
    This is back to the original test idea. I took some of my thick veg hide leather, dyed it, added faux stitching, and weathered the crap out of it. Well, not that much, bue enough to make it look a little used, and not as dark in color. P.S. I know about the gaps between. This was glued over a crudley made cardboard core. It was midnight, and I didn't want to break out the saw, to cut some wood.
    This pouch also "functions". The only thing that would be different about a finished one, would be a strip of shaped metal on the underside of the flap, to keep that angle at the top. But this can also be glued over a wooden core, and made to not function.
    I don't know, with all of the weathering, and the fact that there was absolutley no hand stitching involved (plus it's leather), I think this is my favorite of the three....followed by the vinyl. Which, by the way, I just got done prepping 5 outer vinyl flaps, ready to be painted and stitched
