A Belt For The Boy


Dakota was in need of  a new belt so I decided to just whip one up at nap time one day.
I know, I know another denim project. Are you sick of them yet?  Slowly I am working my way through  the scraps left from the Jeans Quilt



Here's how I made the belt.
I started with the waistband from a [pair of jeans.

Next cut the ends off.

On one end you cut fold the raw edge in as pictured.

Fold it back in half . Sew that folded edge and down the long edge.

On the other end I poked a whole about 1.5" from the edge.

Put the buckle through the hole.

Fold down 1/4" and fold again as pictured.
Sew.


Here is what it will look like.


Next I took 2 belt loops. Put them right sides together and sew the ends.

Turn right side out and slip it onto the belt.

Add some grommets to the other end and you're finished!
