15+ Women’s Belt Making Tutorials: Crafty Style
Posted By Tipnut On November 9, 2011 @ 11:52 am In Sewing | No Comments
Create that perfect fitting belt in just the right color and texture with these easy tutorials. Whether you’re looking for something casual, something frilly or maybe something that screams “fashionista”, you should find an idea or two here to work with. Most are sewing projects though a few just require some simple stitches to attach D-rings and finish off ends. I found a couple crochet patterns that I tucked in at the bottom of the page as well as an interesting tutorial for making a belt out of metal can tabs and nylon cording. As always, I’ll be adding to this collection as I find new goodies. Enjoy!
Wide Fabric Wrap : A patternless Japanese-inspired wrap with a twist. Made with 45″ wide fabric and Fusi-Knit fusible tricot.
Plaid Fabric : Make it in 30 minutes! Best results with a mid-weight soft/drapable fabric like wool or flannel. You’ll also need a lucite buck and thread.
Haberdashery Belt : A stylish “vest-style” design made with fashion fabric, fusible interfacing and covered buttons. Grid pattern image file available to download (free).
Braided : Strips from an old t-shirt are braided together, ends sewn and D-rings attached.
Patchwork : Great stashbuster! Sew two patchwork strips, sew batting between layers and attach D-rings.
Braided Rope & Cording : Materials needed are a dozen yards (each) of leather cording, rope and a buckle.
Faux-Leather Bow : Materials needed are lightweight faux leather, a pronged belt buckle and E6000 glue (or heavy-duty adhesive).
Jersey Knit With Recycle Leather : Nice & stretchy belt made with repurposed jersey knit and leather, buttons at the front.
