rose belt DIY

i made p and me matching belts! i think they are great.

they can be kinda dressy

& casual too!

here is the rundown if you would like to make yourself &/or your mini a springy accessory.

scrap fabric (i used left over grey cordaroy for mine and some green heavy weight cotton for p's)
fusible interfacing
2 x 1 1/2 in D-rings

step 1:

cut fabric
1 belt fabric-3 1/2 in x your waist measurement + 5-7 in.
1 interfacing-3 1/2 in x your waist measurement + 5-7 in.
1 rose fabric-6in. x 22 in.

step 2:

fuse your interfacing to the wrong side of the belt fabric.

step 3:

fold belt & rose fabric in half lengthwise with right sides together & press.

step 4:

cut one end of belt fabric at a 45 degree angle.

step 5:

sew belt along the raw edges, including the 45 degree cut at one end of the belt with a 1/4 in inseam. leave one end of belt open
