The men's belts can be a little tricky sometimes.
I always try to utilize as much hardware from the cargo pants as I can. These tabs actually came from the bottom of the pants. The pants had straps on the inside where you would roll up the bottoms to make them capri length and secure them in place. I was also a little bored with the middle of this piece and tried to come up with something that would give it a little pop. After spending way to much time on it (it was getting out of hand) I took the simple approach and used a piece of a belt in a lighter color. Here's the end result! You will see that the bags look thick, not flimsy at all. I reinforce the materials with fleece so they will be well-structured and strong.
