Web belts are a light and delicate addition to an outfit that is appropriate for all ages. Whether making the belt for a child or an adult, a web belt is a simple craft that works with any style and any season. Styles for webbing vary from military camouflage to cute flowery prints.

Measure, in inches, the waist of the person who will wear the end product. Ensure the area being measured is the waist, and not the hip area, or the finished product will not fit properly.
Measure the webbing adding 3 to 6 inches to the waist measurement. Add 6 inches if you are making the belt for a still-growing teenager or child to accommodate their changing physique.
Burn the ends with a lighter just enough to melt the material at the ends. This prevents unravelling.
Slide the loop buckle onto the webbing on one side. Fold the end down over the middle of the loop buckle with about 1/4 inch of overlap. Use a single pin to hold the webbing together so that the buckle will stay in place.
Thread a needle with an appropriate coloured thread for the belt. Sew down the end where the buckle is pinned using small stitches in a single line. Sew the webbing around the buckle to hold it in place.
Fold over the other end without the buckle about 1/4 inch and sew this closed. This forms the other side of the belt and is a secondary precaution against unravelling.
