After making 2 belts for myself I made a belt for a fellow Legion member,
and decided to document its construction for future reference.

Hopefully this will make it easier for future Jedi
to choose a leather belt, rather than an off-the-shelf pleather
one.

So here it is stuffed in one tutorial.

http://beneluxbase.xintum.be/costuming/jedi/jedi_belt_tutorial.pdf

While this is ofcourse not the only way to make
a Jedi belt, I liked it better than what I had seen on the
web.

All parts can be found on the internet.
The Chicago screws and Belt studs can be found
on E-bay, though some leather shops may carry these as
well.

The buckle I got from Strapworks.

Good luck

Thank you SO much for posting this amazing tutorial! I just used it to complete my first jedi belt! Mr. Green



I did a few things a wee bit differently, which turned out great! I detailed the creation of the belt on my WIP page here: New member, costume WIP

The tutorial was very well written and the process very well illustrated. The only part that was missing was how to attach the belt loops to the main belt (or to the small belt, or if you did this at all). I attached it to the main belt using the excess thread from the belt loops, and it worked wonderfully!

Thanks again!!! Mr. Green

Sorry for the late reply, but I'm glad it worked out, because that
is one fine looking belt!

The reason the front loop attachment isn't in the tutorial, is because
the person who's belt was used in the tutorial didn't want to attach them
to the main belt, but in my other belts I tend to sew them on as well.

I have some more toys for beltmaking now, so when the next belt
comes along, I'll be sure to go all out.
