Adianu's WTF shorty build

My origin tutorial was from 2007 and I changed how I did things. 
 

I used 2 lengths of 3 inch wide white elastic for the base. This was covered both sides by either natural or white canvas. You can whiten the natural with shoe whitener for extra screen accuracy. The length of the belt needs to overlap around 4-5 inches to close in the back. Use around 4-5 inches of 2 inch wide Velcro to close. No need for any plastic insert, this will be strong enough. My belts had 4 layers. I use zigzag stitch the sew together and straight stitch for the Velcro.

Did you have issues with your previous method that included the plastic insert? I purchased materials to make belts for our two kits, which included a sheet of thin, clear plastic for the insert.

Depends on what your blaster is made from too, I see some very heavy blasters on belts that could really do with the plastic insert ;)
