Self-cover-buckle-1_large

This is part of a beltmaking series I covered on my blog. There are two methods contained here on how to cover a belt buckle. For more from my beltmaking series, hop on over to my blog: { http://www.afashionablestitch.com/tag/beltmaking/ }. You can also purchase beltmaking supplies from my shop: { http://shop.afashionablestitch.com/category/belt-making-supplies }. There are typically instructions that come with hand-cover belt buckles but, just in case there aren’t with yours, here’s a short tutorial on how to cover a hand cover buckle. The first part of this tutorial assumes that you have the adhesive pattern still intact – if you don’t, don’t worry! I’ll be showing how you can cover a buckle that didn’t come with an adhesive pattern (or the pattern is much too old to use) in the second half, down at the bottom. I’ve found there are two types of hand cover buckles in the world. The kind that have a middle bar and the kind that don’t. The kind that have a middle bar can be used as a buckle slide or a traditional buckle with a prong. The kind of buckles that don’t have a middle bar are meant to be used in the traditional sense, with a prong and eyelets on the belt. For this first part, I’ll be showing you how to cover the latter buckle type, without the middle bar. Here goes.

Technique Materials

You will need a buckle kit. The buckle I’m covering in this first part is a buckle from my shop and includes the buckle top and bottom, adhesive pattern and prong.
