  • harness speicifically belt

    I'm just about done the whole harness but am having thoughts how the belt is finished when it comes to fasining/the closure part should i velcro like i was told or something else? Velcro must be a new thing cuz it's easier but I feel like I'm cheating my son if i do and how's it going to grow with him. ne how I'm looking to find other ways

    can you help?

    You can buy belt buckles in a variety of styles and sizes at the fabric store. If you use your typical belt buckle also pick up gromets for the holes. You can also get the kind that dont have the pin and hole. Another option is those slid things that you adjust overall straps with. Also from a fabric store. This is easiest for kids.

            The coolest thing I've seen for closing belts is those big fasteners for parachutes. You can get them at army surplus stores. I know some folks who use that then have a beaded medalion that slides over it to hide it.

              tack belt
              by sookout sh'nob
              Ok, i get the part where you push the tacks through the leather, but what do you do on the back side once they are pushed through. Bend the tacks over and then cover them and hope you don't get poked?

              Looking for the best solution.
              Any help appreciated.

              Crow Belt help
              by webscouter
              Hi all,

              I am starting to work on a new belt. I have some questions about it.

              1. How do you sew through the heavy leather?

              2. Does this type of belt have to be laced in the back. I am thinking of lacing it on the side were my future pouch will hang. This way...
