DIY Gift: Lace Belt



Handmade gifts are a must for me, I try to think of items that are simple enough to make fore everyone, but also with a touch of my style.  These crochet/lace belts are perfect and practical for most. 

DIY instructions:


Measure belt: You will need more length in the crochet then the ribbon. Mine measured 42 inches for the ribbon and 52 for the crochet.  This is about medium, so if they are smaller you will need to adjust.

Top stitch the crochet going down each side.



You will have some extra crochet you will fold over the wrong side and sew both sides down again.


Place the rings on the other side and sew over. This is the only belt I will wear, great with jeans because it doesn't have the added bulk.

  7. Okay, silly question maybe, but how do you have it looped on that the free end is under and the belt D's can be worn open?? Love the look, but I can't figure out how you put it on! LOL

  11. I have the same "silly question" as C. I always struggle with this buckle style. I've never seen one that appears like yours, and I also like the look. Plus, where do you put the side that always ends up flopping down on one side? If there are no belt loops I would have to tuck it into the belt and it doesn't look that great. Could you tell us your secret?
