Easy and inexpensive belt tutorial

I needed some summer belts. All my new Goodwill pants have belt loops. 39 cents for ribbon, another 39 cents for two D rings, and less than five minutes of time.



Just slide the ribbon through the D rings, fold the end, and stitch in place.














Hem the other end.

Presto! you have a belt. I saw one like it in a catalogue for $27. Who-hooo, I just saved over $26.









This is my lovely sister, Sara, who came to visit, and also needed a belt.






It was so easy I made two!

Hi Diana, I love your belt, we must try that I know Brooke would love it as she loves belts.

Your sister looks so much like you, at 1st I thought they were both you silly me.

LOL! You're right, Suzanne, a lot of people ask if we are twins. She is 16 months older than I am, and we certainly look a lot alike.
