How To: Fused Plastic Belt

Here's a fresh take on the fusing plastic bags/DIY Tyvek trick: creating a strong base with opaque white plastic bags for durability, then adding an attractive top layer for some graphic punch!


  • 1.5" cotton webbing (or polyester or nylon)
  •  Plastic grocery bags or other plastic packaging
  • Fray Check or thread glue
  • Belt buckle (I took one off an old belt)
  • 3/16" metal eyelets and eyelet tool (make sure your belt prong will fit through this size)
  • Coordinating thread (and heavy duty thread if you have it around)
Tools needed: sewing machine, scissors, and hammer
