Crochet Belt Loops

June 6, 2009

just one more trick my mom taught me

This is useful for the side seams on blouses or dresses for keeping the belt from sliding down.

1. Thread you needle with 2 threads, so you end up having 4 threads that you sew with. Knot the ends together. Insert the needle from the wrong side of the fabric towards the front. Make a small stitch and create a loop.

2. Pull the thread with your fingers through the loop, to create a crochet chain stitch.

3. This is the second loop that forms and the initial loop is now sitting at the base of the chain.

4. Continue until you read the desired length.

    Thank you for posting this, I used it to make a hanging loop for my little sis’ spa wrap that I made her for Christmas. I think it’ll work great! :-)

    Thanks for posting! I remember making these years ago but couldn’t quite remember how. I altered a skirt that had this type of stitch connecting the skirt hem to the lining in a couple of places and wanted to replace the chains.

    Thank you for the tip. Made a skirt but did not know how to make the loops…this worked perfectly. Thank you so much.
