So I found this super cool belt at the Sally Ann awhile back and it wasn't goin to fit me but I reeeally liked it so I bought it and made these: this one's kinda a bad pic but i posted it anyways:




i'm keeping my eyes open for more belts to make some more of these for Christmas presents.  They are really easy - i just cut the belt with regular scissors and got heavy duty snaps and followed the directions on the back of them.

omg thanks for this idea, I have tons of vintage 70's belts my mom made but don't fit me ( compared to my mom I am an amazon! ) now I can wear them, with the extra bonus of covering my wrist tattoo!

Thanks everyone -- just a note for those of you who are planning on making some...I don't think you can tell from my pictures but the belt I used was pretty thin like thinner than the hem on a pair of jeans...the snaps i got (and they were 'heavy duty' ones) just barely fit through the leather...so b4 you cut make sure they will fit. Thanks again ,
