Materials Needed:

  • 1/2 yard heavy-duty denim fabric

  • leather punch
  • 6 medium rapid rivets
  • rivet setter
  • rubber mallet

Cut and Sew Fabric

With measuring tape, cut fabric into a 27 x 16-inch piece. Fold, pin and sew a 1-inch seam underneath (images 1 and 2). If working with stiff denim, use an iron to set in the seams. Fold the top of the fabric back over your belt and pin into place (image 3).

Mark and Cut for Holders

With a fabric pencil, mark placement for any tool holders and cut slit with an X-Acto knife.

Add Belt

Feed construction belt though the fabric cuts and tool holders and sew belt into place (images 1, 2 and 3).
