denim

7.16.2010
I wanted to have a go at this belt again and found the perfect neutral material just lying around my house. An old pair of blue jeans! I just love to be able to repurpose something old to make something new. And denim goes with everything right? I cut down the leg of one and then another and sewed them together to make my long strip. When I was finished with the belt part it looked like it needed something more, so I cut off the tab front of one side of the jeans. The belt loop then became the perfect center for the bow. Soo cute! My to do list this week consists of shopping my closet for more blue jeans to repurpose. I've got big plans for these. Happy Friday!!!

    This is a random question I was looking at your tutorial you did on the belt, which I love and have to have me one. So when you say you only used 7 inches of leather and then you cut it to 3 inches am I totally having a blonde moment (note I am not blonde, but we all have our days......) and it is way to late, or do I need more leather than that

    Hi there, I believe I may have been a bit confusing. I did have 7inches cut; but it was from a 44 inch wide roll. So I really had a piece that was 7" long by 44" wide, which I then cut to 3" and left the width at 44". (Oh, and I used faux leather- you know "pleather" quite cost effective.) One very long rectangle. Hope this helps. :)
