  • Suede Cord – 3.5 metres long

Step-by-Step Procedure

Step 1- Firstly, make an exact template of the belt.

Step 2- Now, wrap the hammer’s end with the fabric and tie it with elastic. Place the leather on the wood upside down. Place the template on top of it. Drill with the No. 1 punch drill, where the rivets are to be placed. On the place for the eyelets, drill with No. 3 punch.

Step 3- Now, place the rivets in the shape of the heart by using a hammer or pressing tool. Put eyelets on either side.

Step 4- Pass a piece of suede cord on the side, where the holes are closed. Then, tie a knot in order to fasten and decorate. Now, pass the suede cord on the other side as well. It will join both the parts of the belt, which will help you to tie the belt at the waist.
