New Ribbon Belt in Velvet and a PRIZE

Yes, I have been at it again. This is another ribbon belt that I have made. This time I used some velvet and chinelle ribbon I picked up when I was out with Alice, Laurie and Jen a few weeks ago. I also added some brown bias binding to this one to cover the ends of the ribbon. I could not really just zig zag stitch down the side of this one due to the ribbon that I used. So instead I stitched on some binding tape and I think it did the trick. The belt buckle is made of plastic and I just love it. It matches the green crushed velvet ribbon perfectly. All in all I think this one came out great. I am still working on some diffent ways of putting this together but so far so good. Just a little shot of my ribbon scraps before I started. In fact this time around I did not use scraps. It took about 10 yards of ribbon and I have a lot left over. Not enough for another belt but I sure could use the scraps along with some other ribbon to make another...which I think I may just do that.

Have a good weekend everyone.

  7. Wow that belt is so nice! Looks expensive - kwim?! The one you posted previously is fun and cute! Lots of work but looks worth it. I have been making mini albums and grocery bag storage among other things for a craft fair coming up.

  8. LOVE the way this turned out MF... that bumpy ribbon we bought looks really cute on this and the buckle is perfect! As far as my sewing goes, I watched the DVD of how to set up the machine - does that count? :)
