Making Gunbelt Bullet Loops

  1. 1. How to Sew Gunbelt Bullet Loops on Lined or Unlined Belt by WC [Wayne Christensen] First dampen a piece of scrap leather that's the same as what you're going to make the loops from. Using two straight edges lay the leather over one bullet and force it down with the rulers on each side. Then use a pair of wing dividers to see how wide that space is. That is the spacing you'll mark on the gunbelt. Now measure the space marked by the two rulers when you lay out the leather flat. That is the spacing to mark on the loop leather. You multiply that size by the number of bullets you want to have. I put a inch tab on each end of the loops. Now I use a 3/32 4 prong chisel punch. I set one prong over the edge of the leather for spacing and punch the holes in the loop leather. Now lay a very light guide line on the belt the length of the loops. Mark the spacing of the stitch lines with the wing dividers. Lay the loop leather on the guide line and lightly re-punch the loop leather at each stitch line. Use the correct holes for each one. Don't forget to punch one hole above and below the loop leather. After that I go back and finish punching the belt all the way through. If you try to punch all the way through the loop leather and the belt you'll make too big a holes in the loop leather.
  2. 2. Now for the sewing:
  3. 3. Lined Gunbelt: If I'm doing a lined gunbelt I sew up one line then jump to the next line on the back side. You can jump right across and sew down the next line or jump down to the bottom of the next line and sew up. Unlined Gunbelt: If I'm sewing an un-lined belt I punch down and across to the bottom of the next line and sew to it. When you do this I suggest you run an overstitch wheel over the stitches to push the threads down so the bullets don't hang up on them.
