In this tutorial i will show you how i made my potion holders for a fantasy based coustume
Step 1: Tools and Parts
- Nail-punch i believe its called
- Exacto knife
- 2 packs of leather strips, mine had width 2cm thickness 2mm and 1 meter in length
- Pack of rivets, and rivet tools.
- Snap Fastener button kit
- Potion shaped bottles
The rivets and buttons had an antique finish
Step 2: Measuring
I measured first from front to back
Then around the belt i was going to use
I then riveted the belt loop together, leaving some extra leather where i was going to make the buttons
Step 3: Cutting and Finishing Up
I cut in the centre of the leather strip that was going over the top of the bottle so that it fit nice and snug.
I then took a piece of leather, measured around the bottle and cut the strip along the middle making a smaller strip that was going around
I riveted the small strip both in the back and front, its important to do this BEFORE the last button thats going to keep this all together or else i wont be tight enough.
I then attached the button and cut of any excess material.
ALL DONE! :D I'm pretty happy how it turned out, imaking a witcher inspired costume so i want it to look a little rough, also i didn't have much time
