With bows being fiercely back in style, what better way than with a bright bow belt! You can pick any color for this but we'd recommend something solid and cotton. You'll need a simple snap as well to hand stitch on. The measurements for the three pieces you'll need to make are in the directions below. Measure your waist (over a thin shirt) and add 2 inches to that length. Making the belt: Fold in half the long way and sew along the long side.

Fold over one open end and hand stitch one side of the snap into the inside. Flip right side out now. Once it's right side out, measure it around your waist. Now sew the second snap on through both pieces. Making the bow: For the bow cut a piece of fabric 6'' x 10''. Turn it inside out and move the seam to the middle. Sew the ends together as shown.

Elastic Brad Belt

These are usually used to accent photographs & pages, and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. I found these large circle brads in silver/gold/brass/copper, and used them to "stud" a waist belt made from sewing elastic. Supplies:- Thick sewing elastic- Scrapbooking brads of your choice- Metal belt closure (I took mine from a thrifted belt)- White gel pen- Hot glue gun 1) Measure a piece of elastic at the length desired - I decided to make mine a waist belt. Add half an inch to an inch at both ends. 2) Measure equal increments along the elastic, and mark with the gel pen. 3) Carefully insert the brads and bend the prongs to secure them (below). 4) Insert the rest of the brads along the elastic. 5) Glue the other end to the second half of the closure.
