Inspired by LBB

There are a few bloggers out there that I subscribe to and frequent. Lil’ Blue Boo  is one of them. Not only does she create upcycled dresses and children’s clothing that I adore, she also lists some really amazing tutorials! Her latest one featuring a DIY belt of the longitude/latitude coordinates of her was fantastic and I was dying to try it! Of all the projects I take on, belts never occurred to me and I wear one almost every day!

“D” rings and belt strap

Very little sewing…

Sewing the "D" rings on

Transfer paper… Just a note – make sure you use GOOD transfer paper for a project like this. I used some inexpensive transfer paper that I had on hand, and I don’t like the results of it. I will definitely try a different kind in the future. Also, make sure to change your settings to mirror image when you print out your design to avoid wasting a sheet.

My finished results (after sealing it)…

Really fun!

It didn’t take long at all. Check out Lil’ Blue Boo’s original post here  to see the original tutorial.
Once I have a better transfer paper, I think I will attempt this project again. It was inexpensive and easy to make.
