"girthbelt".

I wanted to have a girth belt type thing made from leather to go with the belt I made earlier (and still be recognizable as performing the same function.).
I started with this old womans trenchcoat from the early '90s(big shouldpads, tiny lapel, usually worn with "big hair").

I removed two small panels from the bottom front that were about the right size;
as you can see, one side is wider on each panel. this will be the middle;

I also had one of those woven belts made from leather laces with a broken buckle, so I unraveled it and braided the laces into 3 braids long enough to go around my waist.

2 duty old duty belts cut down the length to make some skinny strips;

also; some small rectangle of leather scrap, a pile of "rapid rivets" and four heavy duty snaps.( sorry , no pic of these items.)
hang on.

"girthbelt".

first, I glued a small strip of leather to the two halves to help join them, hoding it down with a sledgehammer head that i use as a mini anvil......and as a weight.


I centered a small rectangle on a larger one with glue to make a center piece that will be riveted to the seam,further securing it as well as changeing the design in the center slighty so the belt wont be so uniform around.


I cut the duty belt strips into short pieces to hold the braid on to the backing, macking sure that the top and bottom braid covered the edges of the small rectange and the black strips were covering the side edges. I had to mark and punch holes galore. :-[.I basically just repeated until I got to the end.



then, using two more rectangle of scrap, I made pockets to tuck the ends of the braids in so they can be changed out if I want.

"girthbelt"

and last, I added the four snaps to close it, leaving extra material on the under-portion to add more snaps later if it needs to be a bigger waist size :P

one is black because I had no more silver caps.

here it is after a trim, later I will use a bit-o-polish to darken up the fresh cut edges.

I left some of the lining in from the trenchcoat to make "hidden pockets" when the rivets were attached, as you can see on the reverse side, small thin items can be hidden here........maybe not the large sharpie.

and, it can be worn alone or with the thinner belt over it.

"kama"

back to the trenchcoat!

this time I removed the entire bottom.
the ruler is one foot

only thing is, the pockets are just below the top seam, I can try to incorperate them or remove them and sew the slit up.


I'll use this studded belt to attach to the kama.

and this ugly dug brass buckle.

thats it for now.

cool, Im pretty sure I saw some cigarett tin pouches made of black leather at the dollar store, just a compromise instead of making them yourself. Oh yeah, I think there might be stuff like this at places like sanfransisco's > (retarded everything barly legal store)

I can see them fine. Someone else was having a problem with viewing imageshack pictures from greatskyriver before, you might have the same problem.

pic links seem good from my end.

here is the simple leather rifle sling I made from extra stuff I had;
I used the wider belt

I cut it in half to get two 1 inch strips which I then cut to a length of 22 inches each.

here is the hardware, the 2 hook things and a buckle. the other two things go on the rifle.

on one strip, I cut a rounded point and punched 10 holes, 1 every 1 1/4 inches for the buckle pin, on the other strip I folded 1 inch over and punched holes at the corners for leather rivets( the kind you hammer yourself "rapid rivets " from tandy leather) and a small section in the middle for the pin;


since the rings for the hooks are smaller than 1 inch, I cut away 2inch long 1/4inch wide strips from the edges to make the strip smaller, then I folded over 1 inch and punched a rivet hole.
