How much should I stitch?
The finished belt size is best determined by taking a belt that is currently being worn and measuring from A (the most worn hole) to B (the top of the buckle prong).
The length of the stitched canvas when finished will be 6 inches shorter than the finished belt size. For example: a 36-inch belt will require 30 inches of stitch needlepoint.
Stitch 2 to 3 rows extra along the top and bottom edge of the design. These stitches will be rolled over to form an edge for the belt.
When finished, leather tabs are sewn at both ends of the belt to accommodate the holes and the buckle. These leather tabs will cover approximately 1.5 - 2 inches of the stitched canvas on each end of the belt. As a result, the actual design area will be approximately 3 - 4 inches shorter than the total stitched length.
Approximately 1.5 - 2 inches of stitched canvas will be covered by leather in the finishing process.
What are my options for finishing?
Our belt finisher provides x2 options for the belt buckle. They are silver or brass. The silver is smaller and more delicate, therefore used more often for a woman's belt. The brass is the typical choice for men's belts. If you would like a specialty buckle, you will need to provide it when you send in your finishing.
Our finisher provides x3 options of leather for finishing. Pictured below in order, they are black, light brown, and dark brown.
*Note: if none of these options work for you, please call us at (919) 335-9420 today to discuss your options.
