  1. yes this is what I'm currently doing right now. I build the belts as the orders come in...My idea is to make a bunch in two weeks and ship them off to Amazon warehouse and let them sit until sold. Although I hate the thought of inventory just sitting in a warehouse, this will at least keep me busy two weeks and the rest of my time i can spend on marketing. Wow this is some good info.... Currently my big sellers have been Black Tan and a British Brown... in sizes between 36-42 . I do have occasional smaller belts but haven't seen any bigger than 44.
  2. HAHAHA well said. I always thought it was my metabolism..lol I would do this for a store front, but Im trying to stock up Amazon FBA.
  3. Im looking to stock up my belts for my online store for the first time, but I'm not sure what amount of belts I should make for each size. Do you guys have an idea what sizes sell most? and or what Colors? I would hate to make a bunch of sizes that don't really sell. Thanks in Advance
  4. @awharnessDo you still have the Standard Rivet #2 for sale?
  5. @Jocker I work right across the street from Urban Ore. Do you know what brand of skiver?
  6. @bikermutt07 I've heard seen folks using denatured alcohol or similar to wipe the edge down prior to using a binder. Then the actual edge paint is added.
  7. Just to add to this. I also use 2-3 needles to line up the two side while putting the sides together. that way the stitching holes line up perfectly.
  8. these are the steps I take for card wallets. check this youtube channel. This guy has really good info on the process and steps to make small leather goods.
  9. @rahere Same here, except my pockets tend to bulge as the center has the bulk of the leather. Which is why I dont use the square. The steel ruler actually curves along with the leather. @Danne when you say "stitching doesn't line up" what are you comparing it to?? the edge or the backside? (Meaning one side is closer to the edge than the other?)
  10. the more pockets you layer, the less width towards the bottom. Now for every pocket, mine are usually 1mm thick lining and leather, the amount of reduced width is about 0.20 of an inch for 5 pockets. When you line up to cut you sides, you would use the cutting mat lines. Level the top straight on the mat lines... adjust the leather to 1/8 or 1/4 inch from the side. Lay your steel ruler on top of leather piece and align the ruler to the lines on the mat. this should give you a straight edge. unless of course the top of the pockets are not lined up correctly against the cutting mat lines.
  11. @Danne As for the top i cut the straight edge after i glue the cash pocket and the bottom after i glue the outer piece of the wallet. My plans are to start making my patterns with 2 to 3 trimming lines, one for the lining of the pockets and backing. one for the top of pockets when they are attached to the cash pocket and the third for when i attach the outer leather. Meaning true size for the bottom and two sides.
  12. @Danne I usually make all the parts 1/2 inch wider than required. After all pieces are glued, I mark 1/8 inch on each side top and bottom and use a Skiving knife to cut right down the side of a stainless steel ruler. I have also used a larger blade punches, the type to punch card slots for single pieces leather.
