Survival belt

Although the temperature was only -8c last weekend, the sun was out and so we decided to have a bbq.  We cleared away the snow from the side of the house, and put out some chairs and reindeer skins to sit.

One of my belts split in half yesterday, so I have decided to use the buckle to make a “survival belt” out of reindeer leather.  A survival belt is hollow in the centre, and allows you to keep items inside.  People have even used this type of belt to carry a bow-saw blade.  In the picture below I have have run a thin bead of glue in the crease to help maintain the fold.

It will put up a picture here next time once it is completed.  I am already debating what to put in it; cord, fishing kit, sewing kit, matches and so on…
