Christmas Gift #3

I wanted to get my 10-year-old nephew away from the TV and PSP, so I decided to make him something to get him outdoors. These flag football belts are pretty easy, but time consuming. It was all worth it because I loved how they turned out.

No pattern needed. You just need three different color fabrics (for the belt and two team colors for the flags), D rings (I like using the larger ones), and velcro. I found that the sticky back velcro gums up the sewing machines needle, so use regular velcro and it goes sooooo much more quickly. I wanted my belts to look finished (even though my nephew will never even notice), so I folded the edges in, ironed, and stitched. I also made my favorite reversible drawstring bag from Yarnmonster for them to be stored in.

  1. This was such a great idea. I hope your nephew really appreciates them. I would have loved to have something like that when I was younger! You are pretty awesome, Krea!
