For the purposes of this kit, whose application involves the use of the eyelets, I’m going to show my favorite way of sewing the fabric for the belt. For fabrics that are lightweight and fray crazy, definitely have a go at the sewing application for the Anything-But-Basic Belt { }. Otherwise, pin your fabric, right sides together along the lengthwise edge with the belt backing nestled inside. Stitch down the lengthwise edge with your zipper foot sidled close to the belt backing ridge. Take out your belt backing, mark the pointed end with chalk and then stitch that in place. Now, for a belt with eyelets, I like to keep the seam to the side instead of running it down the middle of the inside of the belt. It just makes the eyelet application that much easier, especially if you’ve chosen a medium to heavy weight fabric.
