I am holding a Leather build day at my home in Gilroy on Jan 14, 2017. For those interested in building a Jedi belt/ pouch I am including the necessary materials for the needed project below. (when following the links you need to select the correct size/ length/ color)

Space is limited to the first 7 people.

Jedi Belt:

1" light weight (2-3oz)leather strap- https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/lightweight-cowhide-leather-strips-50-1-3-m

3" heavy weight (6-7oz) leather strap- (for those with wider waist lines you may need to buy two- this will help make the cover for the belt snaps and the overlap needed to fasten on the belt)https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/heavyweight-natural-cowhide-leather-strips

4 to 8 Sam browne buttons- (choose color wisely. if you use a silver sam brown your buckle needs to be silver. If you use the brass color sam brown the buckle needs to be golden color) (movie accurate uses 8 but you can get approval with only 4)
https://www.tandyleather.com/en/search/?sSearch=sam%20browne%20button%20and%20washer

(minimum of 4, but you may need more if you make a mistake setting them) Line 24 snaps- https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/line-24-snaps

I have the tools so no need to buy those, but I ask for $5 for the dye and sealant. The color of your belt is determined by the color of your boots. I have both brown and black dyes. You can buy your own if you like. PM me for the colors and links. I also have the needed thread for the sewing as well as the leather glue. I will include these items in the $5 for dye.

The hardest piece to find is the buckle. I got mine from some old ladies shoes I found at goodwill. You can also find buckles on old bags/ purses. Etsy is another great place to find buckles. Remember they cannot look like they are from Earth but from a Galaxy far far away. If you like I can start rummaging the local thrift shops to find suitable buckles. I just ask that you reimburse me for the belt buckles.

The tutorial we will be following is found here: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48452

Jedi Pouch:

Magnetic bag clasp- https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/magnetic-bag-clasps

1 line 24 snap (if your getting this for your belt then you already have it)

6-7oz weight leather. I recommend that a couple people purchase one piece and split the cost. I have a tiny scrap left that may work for one pouch. I am selling it for $15 to the first person. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/craftsman-single-shoulders

Once again the dye charge is $5 but if you are already making the belt then you are good.

The tutorial we will be following for this is found here: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=44773

I hope I didn't leave anything out. I look forward to teaching everyone this fun and awesome project! MTFBWY Ben

I don't need a belt but I do need pouches. So what do I need to get?

Sorry guys. Hank has a basketball game that day. Not sure when I'd be able to get to Gilroy.

Family comes first. If you make it great, if not no worries.
