Title: simple belt plate for kydex sheaths
Post by: Binalith on April 02, 2012, 01:07:22 PM
well my boss wrecked his car last night so I have the day. Since I got HEST back I'll be needing a belt loop. So I slapped this one together:
First I whined about how I can't afford leather right now, then I decided to shutup and get creative.
Made of scrap 1000 denier cordura, my girlfriend makes water-poof messenger bags and backpacks so there's some great scraps around. The plastic is milk jug material. It ain't pretty but it works, I've never tried using edging before so that was kind of a nightmare but it stops the edges from fraying and neatens it up quite a bit

I just kind of blind sewed the plastic into folded over cordura then cut it out after.
