Hi folks,

Thought I'd share my latest belt.  It's a Don Gonzales pattern that I had a great time tooling and putting together.  I thought it turned out pretty decent.  White thread was all I had on hand and I thought I'd like it.  I thought it would pop...but I think I'll be happier when it picks up a little dust and dirt.  It's a little much. lol

Are we sure it’s not a really light blue thread? Lovely work.

oh I forgot to ask what you used to color the flower centers? very vivid. I have seen some of Don's patterns and they seem to lend themselves well to vivid colors and the dark background.

That is a very nice belt, I made a hundred belts , but that belt you made is special in my opinion.

Looks awesome! DG is the BOMB!!!! I love his videos and instruction. What did you line the belt with? I either miss or skip over the liner part in his videos. I have the same patterns and I plan on actually making one for MYSELF for a change!

Again, Really nice work.

Thanks, @bdpeters!  I just used orange cova color from Tandy's for the flower center.  Yeah, I agree, Don's patterns are great for lots of contrast.

Thanks, Rusty @rustyj58!  I love his videos and instruction, too!  He makes it look easy! lol!  I just lined it with 3-4 0z vegtan.  You should totally make one for yourself!  I've made 3 different belts for myself and I'm always switching around and wearing a different one to work everyday. Be sure and post pics when you get it done!

Fantastic! When I grow up, I want to be Don Gonzales. I'm 65, to it MIGHT be too late, but I'm workin' on it!

I loved the orange centers, too. Totally ups the the belt, for sure.

Jeff

Hey! The white will wear to a nice buff color, but a buff color would wear to a brown! You nailed it!

I like the white.  Given the size of that buckle there's no such thing as "Too much".

Great looking belt!
