I have no sewing machine (which you can tell if you look closely at the stitching) but I think this belt I made for my baby daughter came out quite well.  It is trimming that I bought at a fabric store in NYC and 2 D rings.  Unfortunately I crafted without thinking, and should have bought more yards and doubled the belt in two.  It still works, but I have to twist the end over and loop back through to hide the messy underside.  But I think it might fit her well into her toddler years.

I'd love to make some belts. What did you start with, a purchased strap?

No, it isn't a strap, although I guess that would work too.  This was called 'trimming'... as in something you would use on pants or a bag, etc.  It is sturdier than ribbon and you can see the stitching on the back side.  I got it in a fabric store.  And the D rings are smaller so that they fit the width of the material ... and the material width fits the tiny loopholes of tiny pants.

I'll have to be on the lookout for some of this. I am thinking I'd love to make something fringey with that technique. I know they have purchased trim stuff in fringey that might be strong enough, or I'd have to back it with another trim. Gotta look for D rings, too. Thanks for the idea!

I know your sweetie looks cute in this!
