Little Boy Belt Tutorial

I decided to create a whole bunch of belts because
a) my guys a pretty little.  Their pants are always falling down!
b) working at a childrens clothing store, I know that belts for boys are really hard to find.
c) I have had a giant bag of D-rings in my sewing stash for a long time.
Now I have fun belts for my boys and have added them to my market table at our local Farmer’s and Crafter’s Market.

Each belt costs about $2 to make.  Score right?!
And I wanted to let you all know, my tutorials are always meant to inspire creativity and support other momprenuers.  So if you are inspired to create your own belts and market them ~  sell away momma!  And send me photos. I would love to see them!
Here is how you can create your own Little Boy Belts…

sewing machine and sewing supplies

Measure your childs waist and add at least five inches.  Cut the webbing to length and cut the scrap fabric the same length by 1.75 inches.  Melt the ends of the webbing to prevent it from fraying.

Fold the edges of the scrap material into the center, wrong sides facing.

Sew the fabric to the belt webbing.  Use an 1/8 inch allowance on both edges of the belt.

Next attach the D-rings.  Simply thread the belt through the two D-rings, fold over and fasten with a zig zag stitch.

Who could go wrong with this superhero and star wars fabric!?  Most licensed fabric is for home use only and cannot be sold after market.  So be sure to check your material labels before planning on selling and marketing your creations.

Totally cute and such a great tutorial! I just pinned that. I’ve made similar belts before but haven’t wrapped it right around the webbing … it looks even better that way. Thanks for linking up at Project Inspire{d}!
