All I did was measure a piece of ribbon around myself to see how long I wanted it, then I sewed three strips of ribbon together since my ribbon was narrow. After the three ribbons were together, I double folded the ends so the cut edge was hidden and sewed them.
The end result sort of reminds me of a floppy seatbelt (but in a good way... if that's possible...). The thickness of the ribbon seems good for a jacket belt - it's thick enough to give it some durability and is easy to tie and untie. It's nothing fancy, but I think it works as well as the original.
Here are some more pics of the finished product:
Like usual, Smokey wanted to get in on the action. It's hard to take pictures when someone keeps laying on your work!
And I had to include this timer pic fail. Not exactly quality photography, but I kind of love it. Our puppy is such a goof.
