Cut about 40 cm above the hem of the pants leg. Take the belt, and cut 10 cm measuring from the belt, and keep it attached, next, start measuring 40 cm from the other end of the belt (holes section), and out of what remains, cut out two strips of about 3 cm each. Back the pant leg inside out. The hem of the pant leg willl become the top of your bag, and you just have to close the other part. Fixate the buckle part of the belt right in the middle of your bag and close with a stitch. Now, make the boxed corners and secure with two more seams. Attach the other end of your belt on the middle back side of your bag and stitch it a few times. Fixate also the short strips and secure by stitching. Hope you find it useful and easy to make!
