summer belt

i am telling you- all i want to do is sew now- the passion for the machine is on full force here- i picked up these great fabrics at the shop in fat quarters- cut them into small strips- and started sewing them together-
after i felt the strip was long enough i put some heavy interfacing and a pattern fabric for the back- stitched up the sides by turning the fabric under and used bias for the tie- which i love- it frays a little and looks super cute-
used a small piece of fabric on both ends to cover the stitching that came together at the ends-
 a few samples of how it looks

 i also wore the bias through my belt loops in the front-
 loved that look a lot
tons of compliments on this-
 i love to dress up my plain wardrobe with color
