"leather" belt question
« on: May 19, 2017, 01:59 PM »
so i would like to make a leather belt however all I have is a black pleather (I think that's what is is) and its kinda thin and it has a white fuzzy backing. will I be able to use this material or do I need to find something else to use??

You could probably use it, though I'd recommend you sandwich it with something in the middle and another layer of pleather so that it looks more like a sold piece of leather.

I agree with Anansi. There is no problem with using pleather. It's actually pretty common since it's so much more affordable than actual leather. A lot of the members in my clan adhere vinyl to craft foam or sintra so that it's rigid enough to use as a belt and pouches.

awesome!! I was thinking about using two layers of it stitched back to back to give it some extra thickness and im gonna use some foam board to make a few boxes that I can cover with my pleather to make belt pouches!!

If you are planning to use it for the belt itself it can be done, but you may just  want to check out goodwill or local thrift stores for a sturdier option for cheap.

i have an old leather belt that i could use but it has a celtic knot buckle on the front that i dont think could get approved XP i also have a black jedi belt, would that be approvable if i make different pouches for it?

The Jedi belt may very well be okay as is. It just couldn't be a specific face characters belt. Could you post a photo of it?
