Rose Belt

On Black Friday I was in Vegas with my lady in-laws and saw this awesome satin rose belt at J.Crew. It was $30 and though I was lusting, I wasn't sure what I had that I could wear the yellow and white with, so I decided to make my own. I bought 1.5" satin ribbon and sewed 2 strips together (right sides together and then flipped so seams were inside). Making the roses was pretty easy too. Just roll, gather, stitch. Total cost : $7 (with enough black ribbon left for another belt).You may see some of these popping up in my Etsy shop soon. Unfortunately the colors at the fabric store are limited, so I'm going to have to search further for nice colors. Pin It
