I will have to try and get better pics of this one before it leaves. Everything is snow covered here and was getting terrible reflections and uneven tones.
Yep the skinny ones are the nice ones, but my average for belts is around 42-44" waist size so overall length is about 50-52" and 3.5-4" wide. At 6 SPI and not including the loops that's a bunch of hand stitching but, I've got it down to about an hour and a half including prep time - I just sit in the big easy chair and sew away while watching a movie.Have fun stitching that money belt, that takes a while. When someone orders those I hope they are skinny.
Randy - once you get that hang of it as Cliff noted they are not bad at all - I've gotten to where I prefer doing them over closed rounded toes and the only open toes I make are those that mimic originals that longer and later chopped off - despite John Bianchi's opinion on them open toes just were not used all that much pre-1900. If you want some "help" on doing toe plugs drop me a line or give me a call sometime......Toe plugs make me crazy
