What Color(s) Inspired This Tutorial? Please Share Your Advice For Creating Stunning Color Combinations.
This project is inspired by both neutral and bright colors! I have used neutral brown and creamy white with bold patterned blue. The best thing about neutral colors is that they go well with everything and can be worn at any occasion. With their soft touch you can use these colors without any fear of fashion faux pas! As with the bright color, you can always wear that for a fun mood especially in the summer season. The bold blue with patterns is a perfect choice for any one who loves to add a little thrill to their outfit. It can also be combined with other bright colors like pink, yellow or orange! Or if that is too much for you mix it with white or any other shade of blue.
Make these stylish & fun fabric belts with this easy DIY! It will cost you less than $5! They can be worn on Jeans or Dresses! Adjustable and sleek!
Thick Cotton Webbing (Width of your Choice) (Available at any fabric shop) (Usually $2 solid to $4 Pattern Per Meter)
Bag Buckle (for adjustable Straps – Size according to the webbing) (Available at any hobby shop $1-$2 for one or two)
Fabric Glue Thread –
Thick Needle – Medium Sized
Medium Sized Scissors
Cut the webbing in desired size, I have used slightly longer as I intend to use the belt on both jeans and on dresses. If you want to make it for jeans measure the waist of jeans and for dresses measure your upper waist. Take a few inches extra (take at least 7-8 inches extra). Next, apply fabric glue to one end of the webbing to prevent it from fraying. Let it dry.
On the other end sew the webbing on the middle part of the buckle. Follow the pictures. Make sure that your thread is strong.
Sew at back,
Insert the needle on upper part like this to hide the knot.
Hand Sew using back-stitch so that your stitch stays strong.
Finish the stitch and cut the thread.
That’s all, your belt is ready!
Put in the other side to tie and pull to adjust.
You can use double sided webbing for two different patterns, It can be worn on both sides!
Make as many as you like! Happy Sewing!
