The closure method is brilliant!  I am so going to steal that idea  ;)

Get parachute clips, if you can. The closures I used for my first version broke.

Just curious on what diameter rope you guys are buying? I was looking at 1/4 inch rope.

It's cotton clothesline, mostly.  In the hardware section of WalMart.

Be aware that the clothsline at Walmart (at least my Walmart) is a blended cotton/poly mix, and may not dye as well. I ended up getting some rope on sale from JoAnn's that I will use. It's currently waiting to be dyed. I'll post a picture of it here when it's complete.

That's why I said "Hardware", not "Housewares".  My first girth was the poly-blend, and I had to use spray paint to get the orange tint.  The ones in the hardware department are 100% cotton. ;)

Good to know! My housewares-clothesline girth also goes in the "miserably failed to take dye, gave up and spraypainted" column :P

Nice :) I hope that mine won't shrink too much during the dying phase (being 100% cotton in hot water).  :o

Awesome tutorial! Thanks for making it, I used it to make mine. Swapped out the rope for braided leather cord and have straps for adjusting.

Great tutorial.  I am super pleased how well it turned out for how fast it went.  I added a small strip of styrene plastic on the buckle post side to make it a little more ridged.  Only thing left to do is dye it!  :D









*edit to add:

Dyed and drip drying!  :D
