I need a little help with a Leather project.


So, in my summer of arts and crafts, I am looking to make a kidney belt in a design similar to this

(the back)

Only with my heraldry and crap slapped on it. I am curious if anyone has enough armor grade leather and rivets and strapping sitting around in order to make this a reality (I will of course pay you for the materials).

As an employee of a prosthetics lab I have access to an industrial hole punch and essentially a whole workshop to do the cutting and punching so I wont need any of that stuff but if anyone can help with the materials (so i don't have to go buy a full bend of leather and hardware from Tandy) it would be greatly appreciated.

I lucked into the leather I used for Ayla's belt. And I don't really know anything about working with rivets. I could stitch the leather together with sinew and such, but that'd be the extent of my abilities.

Were gowned in your glorious hair.

If you're looking for the leather, talk to Toland. He and Anaminate (Jay) have a Tandy super dee duper membership thing that cuts out a lot of the price of leather.

Hey, since people are looking for leather, I'm looking for some scraps that I can use to keep foam from tearing in an axe or two... or three.
