Mark your eyelets. This will vary depending on how much overlap you decided for on your belt. Best thing to do, is try on your belt, pin mark the location of the eyelet that has the belt snug around your waist and then take it off. Eyelets are generally spaced 1″ apart from each other, and from this first pin mark, I mark 2 eyelets on each side of this. Bonus Tip: When using the scissor method here, I like to mark the circumference of the eyelet by taking a pencil and marking inside the eyelet directly onto the fabric.
