    HOW to make yourself a simple strap TUTORIAL from start to finish.......LOADS of PHOTOGRAPHS!!

    OKAY! This is for those that want to try their hand at making their very own custom strap.
    It's nothing fancy it's a very simplistic strap with pictures to guide you through the complete process.

    Tools used............KNIFE!.........two needles....Thread........glue......ruler......awls .......... and a hole punch, LEATHER of course PLUS beverage of your own choosing, mine was TEA! I can't operate without a cup of Cha in hand. The leather used was a scrap bit I found in the scrap bin, I think it might have once been a handbag/purse?.

    This took me exactly 9 minutes 24 seconds from complete start to complete finish and one cuppa tea! your mileage may vary. It took way longer faffing around with shrinking the photographs,.
    you can take your time with yours and refine it to how you want, this is just a very rough strap for this simple tutorial .

    Exactly, i'm on your same page about that. I think that its always better to do things by yourself if you can, nobody knows what you need/like better than yourself.

    Nicely done. Obviously took a lot of effort to put this together.

    Thank you, however most of the real effort was resizing the photographs.

    Couldn't agree more mate, knowing what works though only develops after some time because at first you just don't know what you need that suits your way of working.
