Beltmaking Series: Hand Covering a Buckle

Spray one side of your pattern with glue and adhere to the wrong side of your fabric. Trim off the excess fabric around the outside edge. Let’s talk about the center of the buckle for a minute. If you have a bar in the center, note that the bar doesn’t need to be and really shouldn’t be covered. So if you have a center bar, cut out that skinny bar portion and clip into the corners or curves so that wrapping the fabric into the center is easier. If you don’t have a center bar, clip out a small circle or square and clip into the corners or curves for wrapping. In the latter case, you will be covering the bar that holds the prong. Make sense? Let’s keep going.
