Obi Belt

July 16, 2016

Got two bags of leather today. JoAnns.


Some I will use for trimming a jacket, soft and pliable, others for belts and accessories and just to have on hand.

I stitched through tissue paper on the regular machine and putting the pieces together was ok. Topstitching around the edges, a two hour nightmare. Hand stitching did not work either, sonI just gave up topstitching and left it bare, after cutting all the mistakes out. The initial plan was to have a much wider belt, where the fronts overlapped, but I now have to loose weight for that to happend.


The tassels were easy to make, but take a rectangle and cut slices, by leaving the edge intact, then roll and glue.

The rest of the pieces were glued, stitched or tacked in place.
