I made this belt very quickly - the hardest part is finiding the ribbon you like.
I used 7/8" ribbon and 1" D-rings.  Next time I'd go wider if I found the right ribbon.  I've not found a good stylin crossgrain ribbon source yet.

This ribbon is light blue and I got another skinny white ribbon with orange goldfish along it and machine sewed it on.

Great belt, one question though, where did you get the d-rings? I have been looking all over for them!

I've made a couple of those belts before and they are so easy and simple!  Joann's usually has D-rings, but I got my D-rings from The Fabric Place.  I used 1.5 inch ribbon that I found on Ebay.  If you buy ribbon at a specialty store, it can cost upwards of 5 dollars a yard.  On Ebay you can get 5 yards for about 10 dollars.  Instead of bidding in an auction, also check and see if the sellers have a separate webpage where they sell more styles.  It may be a little bit more costly per yard, but that way you can dictate how much you want and not worry about someone outbidding you.

i sew the ribbon onto webbing first so that the belt is tougher. wrap it over the loose end of the belt so it's purty.

here's pictures of one i just made ...

I got my D-rings at a fabric store. Just go to the notions - fastener section. Easy Peasy.

D rings are cheaper at the hardware store.  Even better is a camping/army surplus store.  My fave is Andy & Bax on SE Grand in PDX.  They have D rings and other related fasteners that you'll have fun trying to figure out how to use and apply to your apparel.
