Anything_belt_1_large

If you have been dreaming of ways to make a vintage style belt, here are step by step directions for one way of doing it. For more beltmaking goodness and supplies you can purchase to make your own, visit my blog & shop: Blog { http://www.afashionablestitch.com/tag/beltmaking/ } Shop { http://shop.afashionablestitch.com/category/belt-making-supplies } The title of this post was originally going to be “the Basic Belt” but there are so many ways that you can dress this belt up that really, its anything but basic. However, if you make this particular belt (giving it your own whim, of course) its sort of the “belt starting point” if you will. This belt doesn’t have any really tricky maneuvers and doesn’t involve the use of eyelets or the prong. Instead, its just a buckle with a belt. Are you ready to jump in? I know I am. Let’s go!

Technique Materials

For your Anything-But-Basic Belt, you will need: ✂ A Buckle – one that has a middle bar ✂ Belt Backing – your waist measurement plus 6-8 inches ✂ Fabric – 2 inches longer than the length of the belting x triple the belting width (I used silk dupioni for this example) ✂ Needle & Thread ✂ Pliers ✂ Sew-on snaps (optional)
