I made several of these in various color schemes and sold a few on ebay. It was tedious work sewing all those strips of grosgrain ribbon so the excitement about ribbon belts was short lived. When I saw the patchwork belts Sally and Tammie made it sparked my interest in belts again. Making one with cloth proved to go much faster than ribbon.
I am not entirely pleased with the final result. I should have used some interfacing between the patchwork I used for the front of the belt and the ribbon backing to give it a little more stability. It is my kind of project though, fast and fun. You'll be seeing more of these in the near future.
No hair drama to report. The hair nazi was very agreeable and all is good in hair land.
