cute little belt!
so this is my first project that actually has to deal with a sewing machine! im only a beginner so plz dont judge!! :D haha jk plz judge me!

so i bought this skirt and it came with a belt of its own but i didnt like it so i decided to make one myself! i had a big roll of black satin ribbon and it looks nice with casual and formal clothes so i used it to make the belt!

P.s. yes i know i suck at explaining the steps so just ask if you need help.

:)

    add a couple of inches to what your measurement came to. then cut!
    also cut another ribbon with the exact same measurement.there will be two sides, an inner and outer ribbon.
    MAKE SURE ITS THE RIGHT LENGTH BEFORE YOU CUT
