Tools and Supplies needed

Steps

9. Stitch along that drawing.

10. Turn the belt inside out using rod or your fingers.

11. Sew again along the long edges so that the belt can appear finished and professional. Leave little seam allowance and ensure the sewing line is straight and consistent.

12. Sew the edge along the width that was left open. Leave a quarter inch allowance.

13. Measure an inch and a half and mark with a pen from that edge. That is where you will place your buckle.

14. Fit the buckle of your choice by sewing it.

15. Drill the belt holes on the other side according to your liking and the size of your waist.

16. You can use glue instead of sewing.
