Finally after searching for quite some time (and going to over 20 fabric stores) I found the right coloured material for making the vest!

one step closer

as for the pattern, Im going to try and get some help from one of my mothers friends. Then Ill do a practice vest with cheap material and see if it works out :S

but as for the buckles, at the moment I have 3 buckles that Ive bought but they're quite small. Ill try to post a picture later of the buckles
I was wondering if I should use them or just make up some bigger ones out of wood or somthing.

so maybe in a week or so Ill post some pictures , the practice vest may even be done.

ah Im sorry for writing so much, about nothing. but just an update

 thanks dyno, I was actully wondering about how to get it on..the hidden side zipper is a good idea, i think ill try that.
 & Elphelba, thats a good plan too..but I dont think the salvation army where I live will have 3 belts since its such a small building (small town) but one would be just fine for a reference to make the rest,
but yes, thank you guys for the help so far.

Im going to make the vest on the character above..but I havn't made somthing like this before.
Its going to be made of a pleather like material.

for starters Im clueless about the pattern? Im not sure how to make it, should I use a pattern from another vest the try to modify it? or make it from scratch? Normally when i sew I just wing it, but I dout i could do that with this project.

Also the huge belt buckles?
I highly dout Ill find some buckles that huge in a store, so Ill probally have to make them.
Any suggestions on what type of material or how I could make them? or even places to buy huge buckles  Undecided

oh one more thing. Do I need to get a larger/thicker sewing needle for my sewing machine to do pleather?

Im sorry for all the questions , to me this seems complicated and im noob.. so I would be soo thankful for any help at all.

   Im making a bag from a video game (final fantasy III)
heres a picture
I have a few questions to ask about making it.

1. What material does it look like I should use? I was thinking maybe a pleather? and if I used a pleather like material...would my sewing machine take it (its quite old) or should I do it by hand?

2.about the belt buckel, its supposed to have a cross like image in it..any ideas on how to make it?


as for making the actual bag..Ill wing it, but any suggestions would be nice aswell.
