Fabric Belts

May 7, 2013 in Projects

Belts are hard to find in little sizes and they are pretty expensive when you can get your hands on them. Toddler fabric belts are SO easy to make. Seriously, a 20 minute project. It will take you longer to pick out your fabric than it will to make it!

SUPPLIES

  • 3″ x 27″ Fabric (my belt was made for my 2 year old with room to grow. Bigger waist, no problem, just extend the length of your fabric). If you use a thinner fabric, you may want to use interfacing to give more body to the belt.
  • coordinating thread
  • 2 small D-rings
  • Baby Lock Sewing Machine
  • Iron

1. If you haven’t already, cut a strip of fabric 3″x 27″. The belt will be 1″ wide when complete.

2. Next, break out the iron! Fold the raw edges in 1/2″ and iron.

That’s it! So simple. I went with a red, white, and blue fabric because all I could think was how cute it would look with a little white polo, khaki shorts, and some navy sandals for the summer. I am pretty sure I may be coordinating fabric belts to all of my son’s outfits. I mean, why not??? It is SO cheap (like $4 to make two)  and such a simple project to whip up!
