This belt is the perfect accessory for your favorite dress or pair of jeans. Add beads or a little gold hardware (we used brass plumbing couplers) for the finishing touch.
Cut six 1" x 36" strips of fabric from the yardage.
Join two strips of fabric together with a slit and loop knot: Cut a slit lengthwise, about 1/2" from the end of the first strip. The slit should only be large enough to allow the bulk of the next strip to pass through it.
Continue braiding until you have approximately five inches of fabric left. Wrap it around your waist to judge whether you might need more length on your belt. If so, tie three more strips onto the existing strips as needed to complete the length.
