Don't waste an old belt-- reuse it!
My little sister got this cute little bow belt for Christmas that I thought was so cute so I decided to make my own. I am really pleased with this project-- it is one of my favorite things I've made!
I used leather from a skirt that I got at Goodwill and shortened. It was the perfect length actually. I hope my directions are clear so that you can make your own!

The first thing I did was cover the skinny belt in the leather strip. I cut the long strip of leather long enough so that it can cover the belt and then I stitched the sides together so that they are tight.
It is a little tricky around the clasp of the belt, but I just cut little notches and sewed them together. It felt a little bit like wrapping a gift, you just have to fold down the sides of the leather around the belt so that it doesn't look bunched up or bulky.
This is just demonstrating how the thread is wrapped around.
