This month's be the maker video shows you how to create your own square raised leather belt!
I take you through each step in this tutorial video now LIVE on our YouTube channel.
These belts will make great gifts for friends and family, or you can make one for yourself like I did! You can easily customise these belts making each unique with brightly coloured linings (bright pink for me!) as well as textured, or exotic leather for the outer side of your belt. If you choose to use a chome tanned leather on this one, then you will need to use edge paint rather than the stain I used in this video.
Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.
When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.
We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment.
The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.
We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.
