Yesterday I finished a purple paracord belt for my 3 year old daughter using the Solomon bar weave. The buckle is brass and came from a leather belt that I got for a $1.
The belt measures 24 inches without the buckle. My daughters waist isn't that big but I wanted the belt to be a little bigger so she can use it for awhile. I started with 30 feet of paracord and after tucking the ends through four knots and making a little loop for the end of the belt I ended with 4 feet and 3 inches of scrap.
Thanks. I decided to use the brass buckle over a plastic side release for two reasons.
1. It looks more like a belt for a child and not a tactical belt.
2. The brass buckle is more durable than the plastic side release buckle.
Plus when she gets older I can always use the same buckle I make here a bigger belt.
