Add Notches

Shorten 1-inch-wide leather strap to 21 inches, and the 1/2-inch leather strap to 9-inch and 12-inch length strips (image 1). With chalk and an X-Acto knife, create a notch detail on both ends of the 1-inch strip and one end of your two 1/2-inch strips (image 2).

Attach Leather Loops

With a leather punch tool, punch a hole above each leather notch (image 1). On your anvil, sandwich the denim and leather between the rivet backing and cap (use your X-Acto knife to ease the backing through your fabric), and set into place by striking the rivet setter with a rubber mallet (image 2). Repeat rivet setting steps for both cellphone pocket detail (image 3) and towel loop (image 4). For the towel loop, punch an extra hole through the back of your leather strap, and push rivet backing through both to set in place.
