The first thing you need to do is to take the studs off the belt. This is the hardest part.
If you fold the belt and make it more flexible it maye make this step easier. You can prise them out with some scissors, this is what I did. Please DO NOT try pulling them out, it hurts your hands ):
Measure how wide the studs are. They will vary in size, depending on the belt, but it is important you make sure you know how wide yours are so you can follow your own measurements and not mine, if they are not 1cm studs.
Start off by getting your fabric and the chalk (I just used a white pencil) and use the ruler to draw a long line. My studs were 1cm across, but whatever size yours are, double this, and draw a line parallel to the one you have just drawn, making sure (double the size of the stud) is between the two lines.
Here, I have drawn it out onto paper, so you can see it easily. (throughout the whole tutorial)
Carry on doing this with the rest of the studs. Keep putting it around your wrist so that you have some idea of how much fabric you will need, as you will cut this off later. Once you get to your chosen length, you need to leave another 1cm gap, then cut the fabric.
It is a good idea to blanket stitch the edge so that it doesnt fray.
