For my third upload, this is a new design for a laser cut watch band - rallye style with smaller vent holes this time.
As usual I used it on leather but it can be used on thick fabric too.
Using a laser cutting machine makes it easier to have nice and precise cuts on the sides, the holes, etc.
This design is a lot easier to use than previous designs because the sewing holes are pre-cut and there is a sewing line engraved, so basically you just glue and stitch it and you're done, no need to punch any holes or anything; just sew through the existing holes.
I recommend using leather 1mm thick or less.
Faux leather would probably work too but considering the low price of a small piece of genuine leather why not go for the real deal which is much more durable.
Sewing and / or glueing are required.
This thing is made of two parts, the part with the buckle (part 1) and the part with the holes for the buckle pin (part 2).
Basically you fold each part over itself and you sew it as you like (see photos).
I will upload a full tutorial with detailed instructions if asked.
