Can I just tell you first why children’s belts are great?!? Well the pants I buy for Elli rarely fit just right and thankfully more and more companies are making their pants with an adjustable waist. However, there are still some that aren’t adjustable and they fall right off Elli’s little bum. So these belts work perfectly. Okay, and they’re so cute. Perfect little splash of color. Yum.
All you’ll need:
- 2 pieces of 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon (The length depends on the size of the child’s waist…….I cut my 2 pieces 29 inches long because that gave my little Elli a little room to grow. **And she wears a 2T in clothing if that helps anyone decide about how much they’d need for their child.
- 2 D-rings (I used the 1 1/4 inch size)
- Sewing Machine
**If you use ribbon that is more narrow, make sure to buy smaller D-rings.
Then, on one end, slide the 2 rings on…
And don’t even think that this is just for girls………go find some cutie boy looking ribbon and throw one of these on your little boy too. Okay, they sell like canvas-y type ribbon/stuff by the yard at the fabric store too. That would be more “manly” I guess. :o)
