Let's create even more organisational pockets for Dad's Tool Belt with Pockets and Holders with part three of this project!

3 - Make a line 15cm (6”) in from the short edge (the one with raw edges) Also make small marks 2.5cm (1”) and 7.5cm (3”) from the right edge.

4 - Place the 2cm (¾”) wide webbing piece between the marks and let the edge of the webbing overlap about 1cm (⅜”). Stitch in place through all layers.

5 - Align the short edge with the drawn line and stitch in place, close to the edge. This will make the belt tunnel.
