I made this belt for a giveaway last month but had to wait for the winner to finish it to the right size.  I really like this belt.  It was quick and easy and I love how it turned out.  I may make myself another one in colors more to my style next year!

Belt Inside SmallThe winner chose the butterfly buckle but I will  include the silver interlocking buckles as well.  One of the reasons I love this belt is that it is adjustable in size and you can interchange different buckles.  The buckles attach by buttoning the ends down to the inside of the belt.  You can add more buttons for different sizing options.  I did 5 buttons.  Two on one side and three on the other.

Overall the whole thing went very well.  I did procrastinate and put it off a few times but now it’s done and ready to be shipped out!
