Make a Belt

Rain Blanken
For this belt, measure around the part of your waist where the belt will be worn. Some people like to wear belts on their waist, while others like to wear theirs at the hip. Be sure to measure where you will be wearing the belt.

Add 5" to the waist measurement.

How thick do you want the belt? Try 1" for a skinny belt, or 4" for a fat belt. Keep in mind that thicker belts won't fit through pant loops. Add 1" to the width of your belt for seam allowance.

Next, we will fold and stitch the ends.
