D.I.Y. Designer Belt in 5 Steps!

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.
  • Marker/pencil
  • Liner 
  • Scissors

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!
