So I now have an obsession with sewing leather. I found a supply of surplus leather at a local shop, and have been spending money on it ever since. I refined my first design by integrating the fastening straps into the belt instead of top stitching them. I used brass colored D-Rings on this one. I found that buying the proper leather needles for my machine helped a lot.
