I was thinking that they would make for nice replacement straps on a folding lawn chair.  I just don't know if they would be long enought to go the long way.  I wish i had a pile of them!

I know I would buy a refurb karate belt. All you need are 2 D rings, and you just overlap the belt on one end with the d rings inside, then sew it down.

I found this site for wholesale D-rings


Good Luck


I love this light in winter time,
The frost cakes in the carpet
in winter time we'll have our ways
tombstones the mean belong in
No falls snowfalls that ruin my day
Its masked up from the street wire
and winters glow where could she be
Shes warm underneath my pocket
Just a calm and modern day

 My old teacher made a blankety to put on his wall by stitching all his old ones together at the sides. I saw a white one ysterday in a charity shop, i know there was a reason i wanted it. I'd prefer a black one though! I might have to go and buy one from jjb and have some fun. I only have two belts and i haven't got the heart to cut them up.

Do you watch "The Runway"?  Part of a recent challenge involved seat belts.
my favorite use of the seat belts was a kimono-style jacket woven from the belts.

You could also weave a quilt/blanket, pillows, tote bags, place mats, wall hanging, chair slipcover or cushions, moving pads.

You might try zigzagging them together; line up two lengthwise, side by side--not overlapping--and zigzag the join; the very edge of the fabric is probably a bit thinner and easier to sew than the middle.

If they're cotton, you could dye the white ones all kinds of colors.

For a really heavy rug, you could crochet them.  You'd have to come up with a monster crochet hook, maybe made from a clothes hook screwed to a broom handle or something.

I love this place.  I get to do a little mind workout every day!

I was lying awake the other night, thinking of things to do with karate belts.  Maybe I need more interests in my life, but I did come up with a couple I really like:

Make a "bead" style curtain; lay out a bunch of belts side-by-side, and clamp one end between two thin boards.  Glue/screw the boards together and hang up in a window or doorway.

Something similar, fold one end of each belt over a curtain rod and staple/sew/rivet/glue to the rest of the belt.

Mount on old vertical blind hardware so you can open and close your belt-curtain.

Make a rug or pad by gluing the belts side-by-side onto a piece of cloth.  Use waterproof glue if you're planning on washing it.
