  1. Thanks for all the advice! I don't think it's paperboard it's only one piece I guess the stitches are just for the effect? Sorry for not putting in the picture before, I couldn't work out how to do it but I think this will work? It's a bit grubby looking. Maybe I will get some conditioner for it and then just not wear it as much? I don't mind it taking a long time to repair but if it's going to be really difficult I might not risk it. Thank you everyone!
  2. I haven't really worked with leather before so I'm a bit out of my depth but I have an old belt that is starting to fall apart but it is quite important to me and I would like to be able to keep wearing it if possible. It isn't lined or anything it's just one piece of leather with stitching down the sides which is all starting to unravel. It also has a few surface cracks and the shape is quite warped. The best idea i have so far is to contact cement a thin backing onto it and then re-sew the edges. Is this going to be a lot harder than it looks or are there a lot of problems I'll probably run into? I'm fine with the sewing, cutting, detail work etc but have no experience with leather specifically and I really don't want to ruin it. I'm not really concerned with restoring its appearance as much as conserving its ability to hold my trousers up without breaking. If anyone has any helpful tips it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
