Making the strap of fine leather for handbags

1

It now goes for belt manufacture or handle of a very thin skin. I make emphasis on the fact that the skin is very thin – 0.5-0.7 mm. Yes, that’s a millimeter. This usual garment leather. And because it is rarely sewing bags. But it so happens that out of it, too, do, if you really want or need to. Typically, such skin on the bag further reinforces, seal. And here is how to make a quality pen out of it?The cut does not paint a skin remedy for skin edge. He was too thin and delicate.

1. Let us assume that we need a bandwidth of 1.5 cm. Cut the skin of the two strips of desired length and width of 3 cm.

3. I use only Nair Tov M glue for the skin. You can take a “Crystal” for the skin. Grease one side. Especially good are passed around the edge.On the line of glue, we do not go, that it is clearly visible.

5. Now we smear the second half. And ducks cut exactly the opposite. Joint to joint. Like sticking wallpaper.

Again passes mallet.

Why did not I handle seals the inside?

The fact that two of these strips will be together and they are the sufficiently reliable strap. Second, the band, for example, will only add Koz kart ONA flaws when driving edge. Proven.

5. we will have two such strips.

In one of them, we rounded chisel edge.

6. Then comes the important point!

At the edges of the strap, you will be attached a carabiner or semicircle.

And so, to place attachment was not rough and thick, proceed as follows.

We step back from the edge of 2 cm and hold the line.

7. smeared inside another strip with even margins and prikleevaem it from the mark

I think you understand what’s inside of the strap should be hand, a convergence of the edge strips

Ultimately semicircle or carabiner will be located this way:

Now we need to defer strap. I use a special magnet for evenness.

15

You could defer, one diamond eyes.

8. Withdraw the tips on the wrong side, tying the knot, and Sears lighter, not to come undone.

9 . On the wrong side of the piece of strengthening internal Koz kart ONA, where the pressure on the semicircle will be.

That’s all. Our band is ready. He firmly closed sections. They double and tidy. And our customer will be satisfied with our work. A thin leather strap is not flimsy.
