Making a modern snake buckle belt....
« on: April 30, 2017, 08:36 »
Hi all,
Purchased a buckle  from Ebay(U.K.) , and spent some  time thinking about the material to use for the belt. Turns out that an old man bag strap was the best option, as I needed to sew only one end. Wife is happy, that I can cook  and now sew!

Pretty cool.  The snake buckle held up a leather belt in the day.  Check out US Civil War reenactor trading sites. You can buy a very authentic repro on these, might give you an idea..

I spent some time looking at what was around to use.
Thought I'd start with something easy like a canvas type belt. In the end, went with something easily available to me.
I've got a mate with a leather sewing machine.. I just need to learn to work with leather ::)
Some good WW1 examples here: http://gmic.co.uk/topic/8636-snake-buckle-belt/?page=2
Some good civil war examples here: http://www.rulen.com/4f/snake.htm
A great list here, some where canvas as well: http://www.volunteerrelics.com/buckles.html

Looking? through I wonder if the type of snake gave clues to place of issue. I see a rattle snake and something similar to an adder as well.
