HOW TO TIE YOUR BELT
Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Find the mid point of your belt by holding it up so the two ends are equal length. Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Place the mid point flat on the mid point of your tummy! Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Pass the two ends round behind you so that they cross behind.

As you cross the ends behind you one side must lie UNDER the other (The end (1) being the one underneath).

Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt"

As the belt ends come round to the front your right end (1) emerges from underneath the belt.  You are aiming to create a flat "double" belt all the way round.

Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Now tuck this left end (2) up and under the "double" belt created by (1).
Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Flip this end (2) so that it crosses (1) creating a "hole" and hold the belt where it now crosses with your left hand. Nancy McClean shows "How To Tie Your Belt" Take the end that is underneath (1) with your right hand.
