Bling in the New Year Belt



Everyone needs a little sparkle to ring in the New Year.  Have you noticed all of the sequins and glitter popping up everywhere?  I made myself a sparkly sequined belt for the New Year, and it couldn't have been simpler.


What I used:
Sequined trim from Joann's (4-6 inches longer than the width of waist)
Strip of faux leather (cut to the same width and length as trim)
Velcro: same length as overlap
4 covered buttons


To create the belt I used a three point zig zag stitch to stitch the trim to the faux leather.  I stitched all the way around the trim.  I then attached a piece of velcro to the belt.  The rougher piece was attached to the right side of the belt, and the softer piece was attached to the wrong side of the belt.  When attaching velcro you'll want to make sure that you try the belt on for proper placement.

I then sewed a four covered buttons to the end of the belt.  So simple.

Yep, still breaking out the maternity clothes.

I'm not a very glitzy girl, so a semi sparkly belt is perfect for me. Speaking of sparkle, did you see the glitter hot pants shared on Grosgrain...my behind couldn't handle that much sparkle.
