These are so freaking adorable!!  Any chance of selling one to those of us that can't afford sewing machines?

*Bats eyelashes*

I bet you could sell a couple to a local boutique or something, too.  Way cuter than a lot of the belts I've seen at some of those upscale shops that sell for $50+!

Hi Stripeycat,

I've only made four of these and all are sold!  Sorry...

 I intend to make more, but my stash of wide ties is sadly depleted.  I'm on the prowl for more and I intend to make more of these belts as soon as I can.  I sell them for $32.00.  Thanks so much for your kindness and encouragement.

That's a great Tut. I'm looking forward to making my own belt. I cringe when I think of all my dh's castoff ties we've gotten rid of over the last couple of years. Sigh.

Anyway, thanks for the instructions. Your blog is great.

if you want me to, i'll cook and sew.

i made this belt pre-tutorial and i must say it is my favorite item in my closet.
mines a bit thicker then this one and i used an old pair of grey cords for backing.
i'm going to make more with the turorial though!

I was thinking about making one with my scrap fabric instead of ties.  The thrift shops have their ties overpriced right now.  Here's how I thought it would work.  I figred out the "pattern" of the 70's tie portion by your (rickrackruby's) directions and my lone 70's tie that I own.  I can't use it as it belongs to my dog for his halloween costume and he loves it.  Anyway, I added a seam allowance onto each side of the pattern piece but not on the top and bottom because the tie orginal allows for that already.  Next, cut and sew together the sides of as many as need to get around yourself.  Press and it should look like the string of ties in the original.  Because this is way flimsier than the ties, cut some interfacing and a backing fabric to fit the string of "ties".  Sew around the top and bottom to hold in place.  Next (optional) top stitch the seam areas with the zigzag stitch.  You could also do this before you add the backing stuff.  Proceed with the original directions starting with the rounding off of the corners with a CD as a template. 

What do you think?  Will it work?  Any steps I should add?  Yes, it's not as great as the ties but I don't have a tie supply and I do have a lot of nice funky facric scraps.
Progress will be the downfall of mankind.

This belt rocks, I have to make one!  I would wear it around my waist ( like things higher up).  You did such a great job, thanks for the inspiration, will post when I find some ties to make it with.
