Step 2

Cut denim so it’s several inches larger, in all dimensions, than wool felt. (Both pieces of fabric should be slightly larger than template.) Fuse denim to felt with iron-on adhesive, ironing on denim side.

Step 3

Place template on fused fabric and lightly trace with a pencil. Cut out, using craft knife and straight edge.

Step 4

Use awl and a mallet, or rotary punch, to make small holes, as indicated on template. Place a small scrap of excess fused fabric at same points on felt side (to reinforce rivets). Align hole of a leather washer over one hole and set a rivet through washer, fabric, and scrap. Repeat for other rivet.
