Hi! in Burdastyle there's a pattern for a men's cummebund, you might be able to adapt it and make an obi belt http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3838. If you want to be more accurate, I think obis are really just a very long strip of fabric, knotted on the back, and tied up with some thin ribbon like things,  this might give you an idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8vFQpkAuI4, a video on how to tie obis

Another option is to make the obi into a belt that looks like a tied obi.  I've seen these many places before.  You make the obi the width you would like it to be, and the correct length that it will fit the person you are making it for, then attach velcro for the attachment.  To hide the velcro spot you make a bow out of the same fabric that looks like a butterfly bow and use a clip or snap on attachment to attach the bow to the obi and hide the velcro.(do a search on images.google.com for obi butterly bows, and how to tie an obi, those should bring up some good things)  It works well, and is much easier then making an actual obi and having to tie it over and over again, since obis are typically around 10-12 inches wide and about 3-4 times the person's waist measurement.  I've made a lot of obi's for my medieval renactment group, so if you have any other questions let me know.

Hope this helps.
