Stitch 2 to 3 rows extra along the top and bottom edge of the design. These stitches will be rolled over to form an edge for the belt.
Approximately 1.5 - 2 inches of stitched canvas will be covered by leather in the finishing process.

Our belt finisher provides x2 options for the belt buckle (silver or brass).
