A Belt for a Little Boy

Ben cannot keep his pants up around his skinny middle.  I got him a pleather belt, but it's annoying to unbuckle for potty training, you know?  I have my eye out for suspenders.  In the meantime, I suddenly realized I could make a belt with those simple metal D-rings.  I got a belt at the thrift store and cut off the ugly webbing.



Two layers of vehicle-sprinkled twill, two inner layers of flannel (three broken sewing machine needles until I figured out the right foot and needle), machine quilted a few wavy red lines.


Ben loves it.  We love it because it's easy to tighten and loosen. Pin It

My son also had the problem of pants being too big around the middle. I began adding a strip of elastic to the back half of the pants by slitting two holes at each side and stringing a piece of elastic, attaching it at both ends with a stay stitch.

There is something so cute about a little guy with a belt!

I LOVE this idea! My sons have no hips and have that problem too! My husband has threatened suspenders numerous times!

Thanks for sharing!
