Craft #2- ribbon belt

Kennedy has a cute pair or jeans that are the right length for her, but they are way too big around the waist. I saw a cute belt the other day and it was $10.00! As I looked around online, I found a way to make a simple belt out of ribbon. All I did was sew 2 pieces of 1 1/2 inch ribbon together. Then, I sewed D-rings on one end so that it would have a way to tighten. I sewed the other end over twice and BAM! A new, adorable belt. Just FYI, this is not the belt I will be using for Kennedy as she cut it after I sewed it and I had to make it 4 inches shorter. If anyone wants it, I will be glad to give it to you. It will probably fit a girl about 12-18 months old perfectly! Total cost: $4.75

I had the same dilemma and made belts for my boys and they turned out SO cute! Don't you love being crafty? :)
