Butterick B5371. If you have scraps and remnants of imitation leather, vinyl, PVC, brocade, or any other type of sturdy upholstery fabric, you need this pattern. It is just wonderful. This history inspired accessories pattern pack comes with 9 easy and quick projects. Because of the nature of these heavy-duty fabrics, little hemming is required, instead, you will spend your time fusing the lining to the front, and simply edge-stitching the pieces into permanence.  This is also a great pattern pack if you have a bunch of extra cord, eyelets, and D-rings lying around because the fun projects do require a lot of these.

In total, this pattern offers four different style pouches, a waist corset, a waist belt, a normal pants belt, and two different style arm bracers/ bracelets. ┬áSo far I’ve complete two of arm bracer ‘B,’ and am half way through the construction of waist belt D. The arm bracers, which were constructed out of pleather, took about 2.5 hours each. Not bad for such a cool item!! And I probably could have made them even faster the third time around. I’m making the waist belt out of a marvelously shiny PVC. I can’t wait to finish make all of these things and FINALLY use up all the remnants in my sewing bins.
