Belt Workshop Week 2 - Drafting Your Belt Base and Pattern
Week 2 only of Belt Workshop
Bring an old Pair of Jeans (not too thin) or some upholstery fabric, at least 2 yards. If you want a permanent pattern to use over and over, bring also a yard of felt. Also bring any fabric (may be an old pretty shirt, even... scraps, whatever) that you want to be the actual surface of the belt. If you want the fabric to be the main focus, patterned fabric is fine - otherwise, more plain fabric is better, so that your trim, buttons, kuchi pieces, and the other jewelry etc that you sew onto it are easy to see. Otherwise it becomes a big visual mess! But don't bring all the bits and bobs yet - just the fabrics.
