Velcro straps you can make yourself, and that the easiest way! These Velcro straps are both reusable and durable, adjustable in length and super quick to make. You can use them as diy ski straps, to bundle and securely carry your skis, or for any other home use: to keep cables tied up, to nicely bundle that hairdryer cable when traveling, or keep jumper cables neat in your car trunk. Multipurpose!

Diy Velcro Straps
Back to the easiest Velcro straps you’ll ever make! This how-to is for next time when hardware and household shops are closed, or you forgot to buy them before shops run out of them.
How To Make Diy Velcro Straps
You’ll need this:
- metal rectangle rings (these 3/4 inch wide would be perfect)
- 3/4 wide regular Velcro tape (sew-in version): 13″ of loop tape (33cm) and only 4″ of hook tape (10 cm)
- thread, a needle, household scissors, measuring tape
- Again, the Velcro tape should have NO sticky back, i.e. no self-adhesive on the back side.
- Velcro tape WIDTH: it can vary, just make sure the rectangular ring/buckle will fit. I used a 3/4 inch wide regular hook and loop sew-in tape.
- color: your choice. I had white velcro at hand, but probably black would be even better for ski as they would be easier to find in the snow.
1) Cut 13 inch (33 cm) of the loops stripe of Velcro, and 4 inch (10cm) of hooks stripe. You also need one rectangle ring.
2) Fold approximately one inch on one end of the loops stripe, encasing the rectangle ring.
3) Stitch in place. An envelope stitch will be best. A little help here:
4) At the other end of the loops stripe: loops facing up, place the 4-inch piece of hooks face-up too. (They are not to be placed right sides together!)
5) Trim to form a rounded end. This way, the strap will be easier to use.
I’m not even sure whether it’s even worth going searching for these to the nearby shops. I made 4 (that’s for two pairs of skies!) withing half an hour, including measuring the right size and taking the photos!
