Velvet Embellished Belts
Altering belts is quick and simple. For this design we punched holes in an old belt and wove velvet ribbon through the holes. This project can be made in under 30 min.
Circle leather punch (we set ours to the largest hole)
1/2” Velvet ribbon (the length of the belt plus 2”)
1. With a sharpie, mark points along the belt about an inch apart.
2. Using a leather punch, punch holes on the marks down the center of the belt. (or along the top and bottom edges)
3. Weaving the Ribbon: Pinch the end of the piece of velvet and wrap it with a piece of tape, like a shoelace. (this will help you when weaving) Begin on the backside of the belt and pull the velvet ribbon through the first hole, leaving a ½” tail. Continue weaving the velvet ribbon through the holes. If there is extra ribbon when you get to the end, just cut it off. Use Fabri-Tac glue to glue the ends of the ribbon to the backside of the belt.
