If you’re working with a buckle that didn’t come with an adhesive pattern, or the pattern is so old that nothing sticky is left to it, you’ve got to improvise. Here’s what I do. This is a vintage buckle from my stash that has a middle bar. So, I have the option of making it into a buckle slide or a traditional buckle with prong. As you can note here, the adhesive pattern has seen better days. Doesn’t even stick. Instead, to make this work, I use sew-in interfacing or something similar like muslin and this handy dandy Elmer’s Craft Bond spray glue. This method is a bit trickier to manuever, and I definitely suggest that if you haven’t tried this before, pick a buckle from your stash that isn’t a fancy shape, OK? Ok.
