DIRECTIONS:

BELT 1

  • Cut the belt to your desired length.

  • Cut the belt twice as wide as your desired width. (It will be folded in half)

  • Cut two small pieces of fabric to act as your tabs. Approx 1” x 4”

  • Fold them in half and Glue them to the wrong side of the fabric.

  • They should be glue in then center on either end.

  • Put fabric glue on the back side of your fabric and fold the fabric in to the center.

  • There should be a center seam running down the center BACK of the belt.

  • Use your hands to press down firmly, evenly distributing all of the glue.

  • Allow it to dry and weigh it down with some heavy books or weights.

  • Now take your suede ties and loop them through your tabs on either side.

  • This is how you will tie the belt on!

BELT 2

  • Cut the belt to your desired length.

  • Cut the belt twice as wide as your desired width. (It will be folded in half)

  • Put fabric glue on the back side of your fabric and fold the fabric in to the center.

  • There should be a center seam running down the center BACK of the belt.

  • Use your hands to press down firmly, evenly distributing all of the glue.

  • Allow it to dry and weigh it down with some heavy books or weights.

  • Grab your belt buckle and each of the two ends through the two ends of the buckle.

  • You should have a minimum 1.5”-2” overlap going over the buckle.

  • Fabric glue or sew it down the overlap to the rest of the belt, securing the buckle in place.

  • Poke holes with your awl, evenly spaced apart, in order to add screw in studs.
