Alright, I seem to think of weird things to make but here goes: I want to make belts.  There's a specific one I have in mind right now but I also just want to know how to make belts in general.  I know about ribbon belts and all that but how do you make, uhm, real belts that are big and sturdy like leather belts are?  I don't want to use leather though (I love animals Smiley). 

The belt I want to make -^.  I like almost everything about it except for the initials. So I guess the belt is made out of elastic because there's no way to make adjustments to the size.  I could use webbing but I'd have to attach three colors together and that would probably be too thick for a belt loop.  How would I put color on the elastic, dye or paint?  I want to make sure the colors won't run if I get wet (it's been raining a lot here in Texas).  I need suggestions for what to replace the CD with?  Maybe I could just use red, green, and yellow fabric in the yellow loops and make it a tie belt.  That sounds cool... hmm.  Anyhoo, offer any tips you might have for this belt or just belt-making in general.

(I hope this is in the right spot, I figured belts are accessories for clothing so... heh? Move it if it shouldn't be here.)

hmmm...  actually, in that picture it seems to me like you can adjust it.  on the back it looks like there's a ring type adjustment.  I think it probably is webbing/cotton webbing, and you can find it in stripes like that (probably more likely on the web than in a store).
