I was in this adorable little boutique and I walk up to one of the tables because I am attracted to all of the bright colors on it.  What were they you ask...ribbon belts.  But not like you think.  They were pieces of ribbon about 1.5" wide cut on an agle at each end and it looked like they had a thin bead of glue to prevent fraying.  They were like 40 some inches long.  How much were they charging for these beauties?  Yeah, that's right $25.  I was trying to figure out how ribbon that cost at most $1.50/yard could pass as a $25 belt.  I was so pissed.  I needed to share with someone and this seemed like a good place.  ::deep breath::  all better.

Those ribbon belts are really cute, I think I'll make them for all of my friends. Smiley

createforless.com sells pretty cheap D-rings; but I've only seen the 1" ones.


Those make your own D-rings are fabulous!

very cool  Smiley... how did you girls determine the length of the ribbon?

Look in a mirror. There is a place below your boobs and above your hips. It's called a waist.

Once you spot it, wrestle it down with the pants or skirt you want the belt for by putting the pants on, and yes, fastening them. Run a cloth measuring tape (or a non-stretchy string) through your belt loops. Mark the spot on the tape (or string) where the tape (or string) overlaps itself. If you're using a measuring tape, take note of the length. If you're using a string, measure it to the mark (not forgetting WHICH end you started measuring from)! This measurement might make you promise to double sit-ups. That's okay.

Then, add inches as above: +2 to go through the D-ring (and make you swear to go walking), and add 4" more (which will make you swear off ice cream for five years) for a "tail".

It IS important to measure THROUGH your belt loops on your fave pants or skirt, or the ones the belt is for. Your pants add padding to your waist, see.
But don't go swearing off pants and skirts.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Our Super Walmart has the "D" rings - on the one of the round display racks with the buttons.

I make these belts, too. Saw them on some Capris at Walmart last summer.  I  started with a remnant of a braided  type trim that was navy with white stitches along the edges, to wear with white capris and navy tank top style top.    On the end that sticks out  I double the ribbon back under(& stitch)  so that  on printed ribbon it shows  same as belt.

I also made some of the scarf belts that the teen-agers like.  Went to a garage sale and they had piles of fabric  - all you could get in a plastic grocery bag   $ 1.  Bought all the silky like fabrics.  Had trouble with the edges so sewed on wrong side and then turned right side out and used zig-zag stitch near edge.
