    I use knots in my webbing. Too much work to sew that stuff right now with my schedule...

    Thinking outside the box here.

    You could always just buy premade straps from a forum vendors that readily sells them (more shipping) but you're supporting a vendor. Next you could go to a local leather goods repair shop. They have industrial sewing machines and could easily sew your loops for you for a nominal fee. Finally you could got to the local sewing machine repair show in your town and ask if you rent some time on a machine to sew your loops. The guy may take pity on your and offer to do it for a nominal fee.

    Cheers

    I use webbing with a loop, but if a tree makes it so that the webbing is too long, I skip the loop and tie a Kalmyk with the webbing. I like the Kalmyk because it is secure, but easily untied.
