1. Measure your child's waist over their clothing and add about three to four inches to that. This will be the length of your webbing.
My webbing length was 25 inches
For your ribbon measurement take the length of your webbing and add 5 inches.
My ribbon length was 30 inches.
2. Burn the edges of your webbing and ribbon to seal them. (This is a hard task for the cotton webbing since it turns it black. I just left it alone on my one belt and if the fraying gets bad on the one end I will add a little metal clip)
3. Sew the ribbon onto your webbing wrapping the ribbon around to the back on one end.
