Does anybody else make their own straps?

Is it just me or does anybody else make their own straps? I had the idea a while ago to save a little money and make my own (no pics)...kind of embarrassed at my attempts - they do look cool though. Not on par with some of the top names, but even with using vintage leathers and factoring in the time I saved anywhere from $100-300. I used an old ammo pouch that I paid $2 for at an antique shop. One I made with and old gun sling from WWII, again maybe $5 or $6 at a pawn shop.

Not that I'm against buying one that looks far more professionally made and really better made than the 7-8 that I've made. I just don't know how anybody feels about making their own straps.

Started making my own to test leathers

Dropped my supplier and have leathers sitting now, so have to do something with some of them.

Some turn out fine. Sometimes not so fine
