I’ve wanted to make a reversible belt for a while but it’s taken me ages to source a decent buckle. These are pretty solid being nickle plated copper, not stainless or anything quite so nice but pretty much the world standard for belt buckles these days.
First I had to cut the two pieces, this belt is black and brown.
Once I had them cut I had to glue them together, then hit them with the roller to ensure they were properly stuck. Doggy approval was also a necessity at this stage.
I had intentionally made the black strip wider than the brown (which was cut accurately to the final desired width) to make it easy to glue them. This way I just had to trim off the excess black and hit it with a quick sand and bevel.
Once all the holes were punched I dyed and finished the edges then sewed it all together. As you can see I used a white top thread and a black bottom thread so that the belt looks great from both sides.
