My sister is the accessory queen in our family. She saw these cute ribbon belts in Ann Taylor, for $36, and decided that she wasn't going to pay that much for two pieces of ribbon and a couple of metal rings. So, she called me up and asked me if I could help her make some. They were fun to make and really took no time at all. By the time you've got them together, you've also created the perfect foundation for embroidery. Let me show you how easy it is to create your own embroidered ribbon belt.

What You'll Need:

  • 2 pieces of ribbon 4 inches longer than your waist measurement
  • 2 pieces of fusible interfacing the same length and width as your ribbon
  • 2 metal rings for the closure
  • Embroidery designs small enough to fit on the width of your ribbon
  • Embroidery threads
  • Soft tearaway stabilizer like Ultra Clean and Tear from OESD
  • 505 Temporary Adhesive Spray
  • Topstitching thread to match your ribbon
