    "If you desire a permanent bow, fold it at one belt end, then wrap a small piece of ribbon over the center to create a faux knot; secure with hidden stitches. Sew a hook behind the bow; then sew a hook or thread chain on the right side of the other belt end."

Cute bow-belt from Casey at elegantmusings.com- Definitely have to try sometime!

Since I can never find EXACTLY the belt I want, I'm going to make my own. Take that, fashion industry!

The instructions are so simple: sew two scarves together into one long one and trim the tassels from those ends make approx. 6 even pleats by sewing the scarf to itself creating a loop as pictured flatten the loops/pleats and tie a ribbon or string around the middle (I tied with yarn and then hot glued two of the tassels I trimmed off around it.)

For a double-duty, reversible soft belt, topstitch ribbon to one side of belt webbing. If the webbing is lightweight, the ribbon will keep it from stretching.

"Ribbon in solids, stripes, and prints make for fun, decorative belts. You can fold and sew one end of the belt around a buckle, or transform a tie belt by hemming the cut ends. Grosgrain and velvet ribbons have plenty of body, so they make beautiful belts. For finer satin or silk ribbons, layer two lengths of ribbon wrong sides together, with a strip of interfacing in between, then topstitch."

What a terrific idea!!! Purchase ribbon and rubber stamps and make labels on fabric.
