Last Saturday during the Fashion Afternoon with designer Catta Donkersloot, I learned how to make an eye-catching belt.
I am happily sharing with you Catta’s tutorial.
For this project you will need:
- Jersey fabric (1,5 meter). We have chosen fabrics of three different colors to make a three-colored belt, but one or two-colors are also an option.
Step 1: Draw a line of 3 sm width on each piece of the fabric. Use a liner for more accuracy.
Step 2: Cut the fabrics according to the line. You will have three 1,5 meter long pieces.
Step 3: Join the three pieces with a knot at one end.
Step 4: Make a rope using basic braiding technique.p
TIP: If you have a sewing machine, place one end of the rope under the presser foot to make the braiding easier and neater.
Step 5: Make a knot in the end of the rope. That’s it! Your unique designer belt is READY!
The shorter version of the belt is possible to use as a hair decoration too! 🙂
Thank you Catta for this nice tutorial!
