- 1" wide nylon webbing (enough to go around your waist, plus about a foot extra)
- Two 1" D-rings
- One foot of sew-on velcro
- 12" x 30" rectangle of Ripstop Nylon (this is enough for 3 flags)
Step 1: Make Belt
Pass one end of the webbing through both D-rings and fold it back over itself. You'll want about about 1 1/2" to 2" of overlap. Sew through both layers to secure the D-rings. I've sewn a rectangle, then sewn an X inside said rectangle. This method of stitching is very sturdy.
Step 2: Cut Flags
Cut 4" by 30" inch strips for each flag. Then cut a 4" long chunk off of one end of each flag. Now you've got three 4" by 24" strips and three 4" by 4" squares. The longer pieces will become your flags, and the small squares will become the adjustable sliding loops that the flags will attach to.
Step 3: Make Sliding Attachment
Cut a 4" long piece of vecro. It doesn't matter if it's the hook or loop side, as the other side will end up on the flag itself. Be consistent though; if you put the hook side on one slider, make sure you put the hook side on all the sliders. Place the velcro in the middle of a square as shown and sew it down securely.
Fold the square in half along the line of the velcro, with the velcro on the inside. It'll be a bit awkward, as the velcro doesn't like folding along its length. Pin the heck out of it if it's being feisty. Using a 5/8" seam allowance, sew a line down the strip to form a tube. For extra security, also sew a line of zig zag stitches about 3/8" away from the edge. If the first line of stitching fails, the zigzag stitching will prevent it from ripping open.
Turn the tube right-side outwards, and slip in onto the end of the belt with the velcro facing out. Repeat for all your other sliders.
Step 4: Finish Your Flag
You're done! Velcro each flag to its respective slider, put on your belt and adjust everything to where you want it. Then go get muddy!
