Guess what? I made a belt! I'm never done that before and I'm a little excited. It was pretty easy. I used up some more leather. (I'm going to be so sad when it's all gone.)
Here's how I did it.
I found a belt that fit me the way I wanted it to and cut my leather to be a few inches longer. You have to have room to fold it over and sew it. I also made it a bit wider to fit the buckle I purchased (at Hobby Lobby for $1.99).
Next I sewed a little loop for the belt to go through. This is tricky to sew and frankly, I didn't sew it all the way across. I sewed it the best I could without sewing over the loop itself.
Then I folded over the belt, lacing it through the buckle and the loop and sewing on the two lines as shown. Lastly, I punched the holes at the end with a leather hole punch. (Sorry, no picture.)
It can be worn by itself, like a normal belt.
Or, you could clip on yesterday's leather flower for a little more spice. Fun , huh?
Now I'm just thinking of what outfits I'm going to use it with.
Thanks for dropping in and thanks for all the feedback about doing a hair week. I think it's a go. Thanks for the enthusiasm!
