Now we begin to stitch the belt on the machine from the edge, we reach the middle of the length, we make a 3 cm pass, then we continue to scribble, we reach the other edge of the belt. Now we tie the knots at the edges and turn the belt through the hole in the middle.Now iron the seams, pre-sweeping large stitches, and thus marking the folds.

Flizelin glue iron, turn out the fabric base and insert the skin or felt. Then sew up the edge with a secret seam. We sew loops to one edge and hooks to the other. Or you can use Velcro. The belt itself can be decorated with embroidery with colored threads, beads, various sequins and beads. The wide belt keeps the shape of the waist and the whole figure, so it is recommended to sew it to those whose waist is far from perfect.
