The top right holder has a tapered flap that inserts into the holder.
The other two have button
closures. You can make a loop on the
backside then slip onto a belt,
if you wish. When I used Velcro
for the flap, it kept pulling
off. Also, I had better luck using
cotton yarn - - it did not stretch
and pull so much as the acrylic.
