Wow, this is my first post in ages!  My belt was inspired by an extremely expensive version I saw at J. Crew.  I made the flower out of apple green taffeta, using the great tutorial from Blissed out Jo at http://jo2308.typepad.com/blissedoutknitting/2008/07/hand-made-flowe.html.  Next, I simply simply stitched the flower on to a piece of wide grosgrain ribbon, cut to be just a bit shorter than my waist measurement.  I added two narrow pieces of grosgrain for ties, and that was that!  Crafting a fun accessory doesn't get much easier.

WOW - this is so pretty! What does the back look like, does it just tie in a bow?

Thanks, skankamaggot.  Yup, the two narrow ribbons just tie in a bow.  I figured that would be the easiest way to ensure that I can wear it over clothes of different thicknesses.

This is stunning,
I wish I could find some of the material you used for the flower =(
The fabrics stores near me are all very VERY lame.

Thanks, everyone!  twistedd.dollface, I got really lucky and found that green taffeta as a remnant at Jo Ann's.  I've used it for a few different projects and I'm going to be really sad when it's all gone!
