Todays DIY (Seat belt, belt)

Todays DIY is about making your own belt out of what else, a seat belt.


Awww YEAH!!


 ITEMS
Ok, you might not need the hammer.   

  • Seat Belt (Got mine at a salvage yard.)
  • Scissors
  • A lighter
  • And a way to sew it back together (either by hand or machine)








Step 1
Make sure that the belt will fit into your belt loops. Trim the end of your belt ,(after you have measured to fit to your size), and then melt the ends with the lighter so that the they dont fray.
 
Caution with the flame!
Step 2
Stitch it together and make sure you sized correctly, 
Step 3
This is more of a extra step in case the belt doesnt fit into the seat belt loops. In my case the metal tab didn't fit so i had to sand it down with a jewelers saw.






Step 4
Show it off!!
Feeling good in the summertime!
