craft belt

10

I’ve been feeling so crafty lately! I used the neckline cutout from the leather backplate I made to practice beveling and dying the leather before committing to the whole piece. I’ve also had a set of leather letter stamps in my tool bag for a while that I was eager to play with. I had no intention of keeping this scrap piece and honestly half assed the stamping and dying. But in the end it actually turned out to be really cute and I grew super fond of it, but had no idea what to use it for. Then the idea struck me to turn it into a belt pouch (you can never have enough belt pouches!) 

 I made the pouch out of a purple brocade and lined it with blue wool, then attached the leather piece by punching holes along the top and hand sewing it together. I’ve added a button and tassel for aesthetics and eventually will add another tie to keep the pouch closed, but nothing can fall out anyway because it’s so deep. I’m actually so pleased with how this turned out, and I feel pretty cutesy having something matching with John.

P.S. Happy New Year lovelies!

If you have any questions feel free to ask. As this was the first belt of this kind that I’ve made, I’m definitely not an expert, but I’ll do my very best to help a brutha out.
