Another Back To School For Moms Week post. Make your own easy velvet ribbon belts.
I purchased enough velvet ribbon for my waist size, plus another five inches and two D-rings the same width as the ribbon.
To treat the ends of ribbon so that they won't fray, carefully burn them with a match or lighter. The plastic in the ribbon melts leaving a hardened edge. Stitch the D-rings onto one end of the ribbon. Fold under the other end of the ribbon about 4 to 5 inches and stitch in place....
... because when you fasten the belt, the back of the ribbon will show.
This is really inexpensive and let me customize my belt colors.
