The munchkin has an adorable pair of jeans that are simply too wide around the waist. It came with a D-Ring belt, but why be confined to wearing the same belt every single time you put on the pants? Plus, all her other jeans do the same thing. I needed some more. Plus, she saw some blue belting at Hobby Lobby and really, really wanted it. And I spoil my children.
I made three belts: One was the blue belting, but the D-Rings available at the HobLob were too wide for it. I backed it with some home décor weight fabric, and covered my raw edges with fun orange ribbon since it was way to bulky to fold the raw edge under and topstitch. The other two belts are just cotton fabric with a small strip of heavy-weight interfacing inside.
For these 1 1/4” rings, I started with a 5” strip of fabric and used the same method for making bias tape, with a strip of interfacing in the middle. They are simply adorable, if I do say so myself. And I made all three of these during one PBS kids show.
Cute, eh? Easy! And fast.
…And a little on the long side. But that’s ok :)
Do you need me to show you how to make one? Let me know.
