Well, a few of you were interested, and I thought I might as well have this in my archives. Not like I update it very often, but still. Here we go! This is for the 1 1/2” D-rings.
1. Cut a 5" x width of fabric piece of fabric for your belt. We will trim off the excess later. *the thicker your fabric, the less likely it will be to slip once belted on your kiddo.*
2. Iron your fabric in half hot-dog style, or lengthwise.
3. Iron on a piece of heavyweight fusible interfacing so that one edge lines up with your crease you made in step 2.
4. Iron your fabric lengthwise again, so that the edges meet up with your center crease.
5. Fold in half again lengthwise, and iron.
6. Top-stitch the edge of your belt on both long edges.
7. Trim your belt to measure the circumference of your child’s waist, plus 6” or more. I made mine 30” and it was plenty long, with lots of room to grow. Now, bust out your D-rings. You can find these in your Notions section of your fabric/craft stores. Hobby Lobby didn’t have a huge selection- in fact, these were all they had.
8. Put your belt through both D-rings and fold over the raw edge 1/2”.
9. Fold that edge over one more time about 3/4”, this time enclosing the D-rings in the fold. Stitch it down.
10. Take your other raw edge and fold it over 1/2” two times. Top stitch.
Loop your belt through the D-rings and enjoy an easy and cute new belt!
