Maybe others have but I've never seen this great idea!  Any chance you know how it was done and are willing to share?

looks like it could be easily figured out, just look at the picture, it looks like 2 of them were placed side by side, and then one on top, right in the middle where the two meet, then the string or whatever is threaded through them, just repeat. I would do a picture tutorial, but the digi cam is broken...boo hiss

yeah, basically you just weave a shoelace or ribbon through the 2 layers. 
note* make sure you put the sharp sides inward facing eachother.  I can try to do a tutorial of sorts.  But it'll probably be awhile cause of papers and what not.

As for Mexico.  I was in Acapulco.

yeah, they def made belts with them too.  you could even buy these in the mall.  But why would you do that when you can make it? right?
