this is such a great idea! Thanks for posting this!


I've been making some like these for a while and have been having so much fun (on my blog...www.prettywithribbons.com) I love your blog - lots of colorful and cheery ideas...thanks!


I really want to try this out but I can't find any cute belt buckles. Could you pass along your source for the ones you have shown? Thanks for the tute!


Thanks for the great idea ! I plan on making Christmas gifts for a few nieces.


I don't know if anyone mentioned it, but if you turn the ends inside before sewing up the sides, then the ends will already be finished and can just be topstitched for the finished look. It helps remove some of the bulk at the end.... don't forget to trim the material to accomodate for the corners though!


Thanks for the tutorial. These are going to be perfect for my skinny-minny nieces that can never find a belt to fit.


Thanks for the tutorial. I have a collection of bakelite buckles that I have been saving to make belts like these. Your instructions will get me started! Thanks.


Great tutorial! I used iron on interfacing, and found if I ironed the fabrics on the interfacing with the folds ready to sew it sat flatter and was easier to sew :-)


Thank you so much for this tutorial...my daughter is allergic to nickel so regular belts give her a rash on the tummy. And I've been looking for another project, so this will help us both! Now I just have to find some buckles. Where did you get yours?

I love vintage products and i am always in search of such fantastic and unique things. I must try to make these belts at home.


Where did you get the buckles? I'm allergic to nickel and am always looking for an alternative to metal buckles!


These are gorgeous but I've tried had to find some decent belt buckles, resin would be great but no luck. Could you please recommend a place/site where I can purchase them.


can you email me and let me know where to find the cute belt buckles? I've already checked joann's and they don't have any! Thanks!
