In this video I am making a fully lined 3" leather guitar strap. This is a great project as there is plenty of opportunity to practise all different kinds of leather decoration and dyeing techniques such as tooling, stamping, airbrushing, antiquing, studs, conchos, braiding etc. ... of course you can just make a plain one as well :)

The template that I used is made by Black River Laser and is available from:
