The sewing technique: 1) fold the belting over 1 D-ring and pin, 2) sew along the raw edge with a zigzag stitch, 3) fold the belting, 4) pull through the D-ring to create a loop on the other side of the D-ring, 5) the loop should look like this, and 6) wrap it around your yoga mat, and then wrap the belting around the other end of your mat and pin into place; try it on and make sure it’s the right length, trim if needed, then repeat steps for this side. Done!
