A NEW BELT EVERYTIME TO MATCH YOUR DRESS :) !!!

I feel like as if I just woke up from a deep sleep, still stretching my limbs...Its been a long time since I wrote on my blog. Sorry:(. was bit tangled...

Well this is the fastest craft ever done by me...

A NEW BELT EVERYTIME TO MATCH YOUR DRESS :) !!!

All you need are buckles of your choice from craft shop.
The picture bellow shows front and back of the same buckle.

Next what you need are:
  • scrap pieces of clothes of your choice
  • measuring tape
  • sewing machine
  • matching or contrasting machine threads
Method:
  • Measure your waist using the measuring tape at the level where you wear your belt and add 3 inches or 8cm to it (say "A")
  • Measure the inside belt loop height and minus 0.8inch or 3mm(say "B")
  • Mark and neatly cut out your favorite length of cloth in size A x 4B
  • Now neatly fold in the cloth along the entire length as "M" and fold in the raw edges
  • Stitch the cloth with parallel rows of stitches. You can use fancy stitches as well. I was too excited that I did it all in simple run.
  • Now you have belt strip of size A x B
  • Fix the edges of the strip to buckles as directed
 Make belt strips in many colours, prints and even reversible


Change the strips as per your dress
And there, you are done

  1. That is a great idea to switch the belt out and use the same buckle. Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!
