I reserved a few posts right at the beginning of the thread so the entire process would all be in one place. Look around post five or six.

So did you not use a welt at all? Going to just rely on the glue to keep the blade from cutting the lacing?

I have only glued the belt loop so far. I'll stitch the loop only today. I plan on using a piece of lacing as a buffer between the blade edge and the glued and laced edge. I've given it some thought and I think it will work and not be too thick.

Since this is a first for me, I think it will be serviceable. However, like anything else, I can see how practice makes perfect.

I'm loathe to give too much unsolicited advice but I think happier outcomes are had by making a welt by tracing the business edge of the blade, using a compass to offset the line by about 3/8", tapering that to a triangular cross section (wider at front), gluing it in and stitching through it. As I remarked to my apprentice the other day, "You may wonder how I know all these stupid things that can go wrong on a job like this...". Good luck, enjoy the journey. I'll shut up now.
