Who said that the accessories have to be by Chanel or Gucci? Any thing, as appropriate, and to supplement it, it looks luxurious. This means that'll save my money for travel and gifts to friends and such accessory as a belt exactly can do ourselves.
Remember our post about what you can do from the usual T-shirts? (article here & gt; & gt; & gt;) Part of the idea is taken from there. But we do not get the hair band and a luxury eco-belt!
Need an old T-shirt, pair of scissors, a ruler, accessories (two identical buckle ring or semicircle).
Cut out t-shirts 5-6 cm wide strips. It is best to cut from the bottom of T-shirts, cut off one seam, and another left to the strip were quite long, longer than the meter. We need four strips.
When prepare, secure them from one end of the pin. Next you need to weave a braid of 4 strips. To secure this edge, pin pinned to the pillow or placing a heavy object on the edge.
We begin to weave under the scheme. First, a pair of intertwined strands (1, 2, 3 and 4), then the middle pair (4, 1). Repeat so until a canvas belt.
Fix the edge of the braids. Sewn accessories.
Before you - a stylish braided belt, which almost took a lot of money and effort.
Use lace belt in several ways. I'll talk about two. By the way, if you love fine knitting, you can tie the lace strip yourself thin threads and crochet.
For him, only it needs a wide lace and braid width of 2, 5-4 cm. Color solution pick. You can work on the contrast, and you can choose lace and braid one shade. The length of the lace should be slightly smaller waist circumference, and the length of the ribbon - more than 40-60 centimeters.
Then everything is simple - to sew braid lace at the center, process the edge tape (loose-leaf or char if synthetic tapes). Stylish belt is ready!
For such zones require more advanced sewing skills, but is pretty simple here.
(expenditure on the size of the belt 3, 8 x 106 cm)
- A strip of a monochromatic fabric 8 x 112 cm
- A strip of cloth with a print of 5 x 112 cm
- A strip of non-woven fabrics or other sealant (medium soft) 3, 8 x 112 cm
- One strip of lace 3, 8 x 112 cm
- Two rings in the form of the Latin letter D
The length of the belt can be made more or less - it all depends on your own size.
A strip of normal tissue iron bend, as shown in the photo. Inside - a fleece or other dense fabric.
Prepare the fabric with a print - iron buckle edge. The thickness of the strips should get a little less than the band with fleece. We connect the two parts, as shown in the photo. Fix the pins.
Sewn on the machine.
By the side of the prints without putting a lace and sewn.
Sewn half rings and treated with a second edge of the belt.
Lacy belt ready: now it's up to your imagination - a combination of colors and prints you choose.
I want to introduce you to one more original idea. Sewing machines are not needed, and soon, this belt is one of those "second life of things." If you have an old belt can be worn, it should be updated.
For work required:
- An old leather belt (or a new low-cost)
- A large needle with a wide eye
- Trim, scraps of colored tissue
- An awl or a special punch for leather
Make perimeter belt hole diameter of not more than 0, 5 cm, 1 cm intervals.
Cut strips of colored fabric. It is better to cut on the bias. The strips are not wide, 1 or 1, 5 cm, they must take place in the eye of the needle. The edges of the strips are not processed on the contrary, a little Fan, so they do not crumble when worn.
Now obsheyte cloth strap belt. When a strip of cloth over, leave the end of the strip and the other begins. After the tie ends together on the reverse side of the belt.
Belt is ready - the original in the Bohemian style.
Best use - wear with jeans, denim skirt, leather goods.
