Here's my latest crafty, creative Friday night project. My friend and I made these together, chatting over a period of two hours, and ended up with three or four new belts to spice up our wardrobe.
I picked out about two yards each of a few 1 1/2 or 2 inch wide ribbons in colors that struck me,and some hardware packaged like this:Holding the ribbon around my waist, I cut it to length to fit me plus a couple inches for the fold over. The next step was to stitch one end of ribbon and backing around the D-rings to attach the hardware. We sewed the ribbon, with just a straight stich on each side, to some cotton webbing as backing and wrapped the end of the ribbon around the backing for a few inches to allow for folding back over the D-rings.I'm really excited about the finished products and know they'll make me smile every time I put them on!
