Alligator Belts

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Any tips for making alligator hide belts?  A coworker has an alligator hide he would like me to use to make him a belt.  I have yet to see the hide, but he says it's pretty thick.

Thanks,

JC

I’m no expert on alligator, but I made a cigar case using embossed vegtan- was bumpy like alligator.  I put the edges in a vise and flattened them so I could punch holes more easily, then I hand stitched them.  Turned out ok, maybe real alligator will work the same?

The person to catch up with would have to be @RockyAussie. Check out some of his posts regarding belts and/or croc leather.
