Ribbon belts

With a simple fun-colored buckle and beautiful ribbon you can craft this belt!


Lucite Buckles


Measure an existing belt to get the right length and be sure to add for overlap at the buckle and end. I layered them wrong sides together and simply topstitched them together, pivoting at corners and including the ends that have been turned under. You could use fusible web to join the two lengths before stitching as a precaution, if you'd like. 


finishing ends


Once you have joined the two layers, slip one end through the buckle and back onto itself and stitch. You'll have to extend past the buckle enough to actually sew it on your machine.

We've got so many great ribbons in stock! You could layer them as well, using a solid grosgrain and a pretty embroidered ribbon. The buckles come in different colors too so have fun playing.
