12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Bellydance belt tutorial **revised to be more clarified & w/ better pics** on: July 21, 2009 01:17:59 AM
that is neat. As a dancer and a broke college student and other things, its so hard to find cheap accesories. many times i reuse old dresses and add a hipscarf for an outfit. my fav is the a-symmetrical prom dress and a silver coin belt.

Thank you! I was in the exact same boat as you when I made that belt! Now I'm just a broke college graduate. Trying to become a broke graduate student. This belt was seriously just the cost of 2 skeins of yarn and a fair amount of time to make it! ^_^

I'm a hack and slash seamster and tended to use any available surface to force the needle through... table surfaces, door frames, shoe soles...  Wink

Pliers is sensible. And planning ahead! And stuff.  Grin

I had to eventually break down and go grab some pliers. My fingers just couldn't take any more.... All I have to say is that it was a good thing m bra was red and black....so the blood stains from my fingers wouldn't show...

you can find a harem pants pattern online for free! Don't pay for that!

I second the buckram. It is the most commonly recommended  fabric in cab belts.

Here is a site that might help/inspire you!

You might want some small pliers for when you're sewing through the bra too. It will help when your fingers get tired.

Seconded! Though I always just use a thimble to avoid blisters.  Smiley

It took the friggin will of god to get that needle through that bra's padding for me. But then again it's heavily padded, so it was probably more difficult than usual.

Yeaaah.... I have hair that is almost to my butt. So I really NEED to have cheater dreads. I don't want to imagine the headache i'd get from tripling the amount of hair I have on my head. When you do get them put in you totally need to post pics!

Let me refer you to an awesome tutorial!

http://members.iinet.net.au/~ramsden/tribal/coinbra.html

I used this website as a guide for my bras. Use a bra that is thicker. Something that will stand up on it's own. I used a Fredrick's of Hollywood Extreme Cleavage bra. I used quilters thread too. You might want some small pliers for when you're sewing through the bra too. It will help when your fingers get tired.

Also, make sure you are careful how you angle the straps. That will affect your cleavage a lot.

Hope that helps!!! Good luck! Post pics when it's done!

They look great! Alas...I live like 3 hours north of you and don't actually know how to put dreads into hair. I just know how to cheater it and put them on ribbons to put in your hair...
