Shabby Chic Belt

My Shabby Chic Belt is part of the 2019 Bohemian Chic Blog Hop. Make this cute belt in any array of colors. Want to make it longer? No problem! Just make a few extra squares to get the desired length. Pssst. you can even decrease the amount of squares to fit a child. Enjoy!

I love wearing belts that only serve as fashionable. Just a cute, chic, make you feel good kinda belt. I think those types of belts compliments an outfit on a larger scale verses those that are cute but necessary to hold up your pants and/or skirt.

Joining:
Sew the squares together as follows.
Using Color B
Place first two squares with Right Side together, using the whipstitch sew through the back loops only. Repeat this method until you have sewn all 8 squares together.

Edging:
Using color of your choice, sc evenly around.

Tassels:
Using all three colors or color of your choice (I used Colors A and C)
Join yarn in the corners and in the middle on the short end. Chain 60, sc in the back bumps across. Fasten off, cutting yarn about 1 inch from the end. Be sure to do this on the other end as well. Optional: you can always chain more for the tassels on the ends if desired Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Happy Hookin!
XO, Mistie
