I cut out rectangles…you can pick any size really….if you are making them for a small person you will want a smaller size….this one is approx 14 by 36 inches
then i folded down about two inches and sewed right at the bottom…
then i folded in in half….right sides together. front and back both have that lip and the sides all sewn in
before you sew up the sides you take 3-4 inches of the belt material from your flag football set….
fold it in half….
and place it inside…so all the raw edges are facing outwards…
pin in place and sew all the way up to the folded over edge..(don’t sew past that part)
you stop right there…..
make sure you reinforce that nylon belt material…
here’s what it looks like so far….
go ahead and turn it right sides out….
take your rope material and add a safety pin and feed it through your top part…
you can tie a knot. but i’m not a boy scout. or a girl scout. and can’t tie a proper knot…so i just sewed the pieces together….
what the sides looks like…..
