  1. Does anyone know where i can find 2 1/2" belt buckles. I would like an antique brass buckle but brass would be fine as well. I am struggling to find anything that looks decent. Thank you for your help
  2. Why didn't i think of that! Thats a great idea! Thank you
  3. I was asked if I could alter a couple of belt for a customer that had lost a significant amount of weight. They are caiman so i dont think he wants to get something brand new. The problem is they look machine stitched, so if i cut off the end, then the stitching will start to come out. I dont own a sewing machine and dont even know how to use one, so would it be possible to back-stitch by hand and then hand stitch the new end? Thanks for the advice Adam
  4. I was wondering if anyone has used this nano suction sheet for iphone wallets or anything else https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/nano-suction-sheet-8-1-2-x-11-x-1-mm-216-x-279-x-1-mm I am planning on using it for my next project but want to know how other members have liked it or didnt like it. I am making a book style iphone 8plus wallet. Thank you Adam
  5. I am in the process of making a back pack, and I am going to make the top a cinch drawstring and a flap, like the picture below. I wanted to add a little flair to it by making the cinch drawstring a bolo tie. Has anyone done this before and did it work? Does anyone think this wont work? What i am worried about is that the bolo tie wont have enough tension to keep it closed. Thanks for the responses
  6. @mustangman2 They have great hardware but Im looking for more options
  7. I am trying to find twist lock closure that are more decorative. Almost everything ive been able to find is very basic. Does anyone know where i can find more of a selection besides hearts and butterflys? Thanks for the help Adam
  8. I did send an email to the supplier. I am waiting for the reply. But that is a good point, socks would soak up the oil if used for boots.
  9. I bought a side of oil tanned leather from Springfield Leather and i noticed how oily it was from the beginning. I decided to use it and i made a piece with veg tanned accents. After a few hours the oil seeped into the veg tanned leather. It doesn't look bad but i am worried about it getting into any content put into the bag. Is there a way to leech excess oil from the leather with rice or something like that?
  10. I was wondering where everyone got their blue guns from? Ive looked around and seen them for around $50. Is that a fair price?
  11. Does anyone know of a tutorial of how to make pool table pockets or some instructions somewhere? Thanks!!!
  12. I want to make templates for some of the more common items i make but i dont know what to use to create the templates. I was thinking of going to tap plastics and getting a plastic that cuts easily and keeps its form. Is there any other suggestions? Ive used thick cardboard but the edges start to bend after a while and i dont get straight lines. Thanks
  13. Its hard to get the dye to take, is there something I should be doing to the leather before hand?
  14. thanks everyone, looks really simple. Appreciate the help.
  15. I was asked to make a couple belts but have never made belts before. the sizes i was asked for are 34 and 48, what are the actual lengths of the belts from buckle to end?
