This was my own pattern and creation. This was not easy but I did figure it out.
You can see at the bottom left I drew out my pattern for my steam punk leg belt.
I sewn each piece to the back of the material. The material is very slippery due to its faux leather. It’s a slight stretchy. So I needed something to help to make it more stable.
Here is started sewing the inner lining for the outside pocket.
I decided I wanted to make the top
have an inner pocket also. So I cut a slit on the top and sewn in a zipper at the top.
Here after sewing the zipper in. I needed to sew the lining that would make a pocket for the inside.
This is the other side of the outside pocket. I needed to sew this on the outside first before sewing the side of the pocket together.
After doing this to the front side I needed to start decorating the outside of the pocket so the inner lining would hide all the studs.
I then sewn the outer material pocket to the inside pocket. Remember to put it inside out when sewing it on to give you that clean edge.
Needed to measure my leg and waste for making the belt part. Did the same by adding interface material to make it more stable.
Before I could sew the top on I started decorating it with studs and rivets. I needed to do this so then I could line it. I didn’t want you to see the underside. This part was fun deciding on how I wanted it to look.
Now that the outside of the pocket was done and lined. It was time to sew the outside together. This was very challenging due to the bulky outside pocket. Trying really hard not to catch the pocket when sewing it inside out.
But before you sew around on the outside you first need to attach the bottom some D-rings and at the top for holding on your side satchel.
Making the belt strips were pretty easy adding the hooks and rivets to the belting. This is the finished piece I came up with. It’s really nice…. and it’s very useful to carry things like your phone and more.
