Hold ’em Up Belt

We’ve all been there – you get your little man all dressed up for a special day (or even an average one!), only to discover that his pants won’t stay on. Our Hold ‘Em Up Belt is here to solve that problem! It’s so easy to make, and easy on your little guy to put on and take off. Win-Win!

About the Pattern:

  • This is a beginner-level pattern for a simple fabric belt with loop closures.
  • You’ll need a piece of fabric that is 3″ wide by your child’s waist measurement plus 6 extra inches to make this belt. Time to stash-dive!
  • You’ll also need coordinating thread and a set of 1 1/4″ D-rings along with some heavyweight interfacing.
  • Fabric recommendations: quilting cotton, linen-cotton blends, corduroy, cotton canvas, home decor fabrics.
