I am feeling much better than I did yesterday, although I still took a nap after my morning run just to keep myself on the path to full health.I had a few hours this afternoon so I decided that instead of spending a few hours on pinterest and my google reader looking at all these amazingly creative crafts other people are doing, I should sit down and do one myself! So I pulled out a half finished project and within 45 minutes it was done!
I made a belt! I got the pleather (pho leather) at Joannes a few months ago on clearance. I bought a quarter yard and it cost me two dollars! I also bought some 2 inch black elastic that was on sale...I don't remember how much it cost, but I know it was not more than a few dollars. The black elastic is on the back of the belt...sorry that I forgot to get pictures of the back! I used the buckle off an old shoe that I never wore.
(Note: practice sewing on pleather before you cut all your fabric to size and start in on the project)
It definitely does not look profesional, but its a start and I think it looks cute! I have enough pleather and elastic for at least two more. I'll try to get some full outfit pictures up soon!
