Well done Jess. Since I'm not quite wearing belts again, I think I'll use your technique for making Jake a new guitar strap. Thank you for the great tutorial.

Great tut! BTW, Sew Mama Sew is having a Create & Celebrate blog entry (http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=535). You could submit this wonderful tut ;)

I could use a new camera strap. I think I will try it out using your instructions. Thanks!

Thanks again for the great tutorial! Love the ideas!


awesome job, you!


Thanks for the tutorial! I have to make one of those for my daughter--she'll flip!


These belts are beautiful! I'm not much of a sewer but I think you've inspired me to try!


Those are just lovely! Unfortunately, I'm afraid of belts...maybe someday I'll dare to tuck, but for now it's all about the tunic-length tops for me. Ugh! I have a friend who'd love something like this, though. Christmas gift?? Hmm...

I'm looking forward to trying this out! Really cute!


This is such a fantastic tutorial! I'll be including this in this afternoon's Daily DIY! I can't wait to make some myself as well!
