Samurai Princess Meditation Belt

Added May 3, 2008

by ledthread

Brooklyn, New Yo...






I made this from an old pair of denim capris I outgrew. I call it ‘meditation belt’ cuz it was like meditating doing all that topstitching!

Material Notes

upcycled maroon denim, lots of yellow thread (i think i had to rewind the bobbin about 4 times!)





my girlfriend’s obi belt, that I sorta knocked off.
