From fringed shoes and sandals to fringed bags, fringed denim. The fringed trend was a big hit since last year and it has totally come to stay. I saw the fringed belt once on mocheddah and I couldn’t stop thinking about it since then. I couldn’t afford it when it was sold by her on instagram and I thought well, I can just make mine. I thought of a simple tutorial which is near to being the perfect fringed belt and I wish to share it on the style post today. The fringed belt also has a way of taking a simple outfit from stage 1 to a 100. Let’s kick-start this already.
Things that you need.
- A torn or old leggings preferably a leather fabric
- Needle and thread
- A pair of hook
- Scissors and a razor
Rip the leggings apart but cutting through the seams using a razor, separate the seams at both ends and also the crotch area till you get a single straight piece.
Using scissors to cut through the leggings to get individual pieces, remember to stop at the waist which will serve as a base for the hook. When cutting, use your description to know the size for the individual piece. For mime, though not measured I didn’t want it to be so tiny.
Knot each end, and look for a seam on the waist and cut through this place. This step might not be so necessary but if you insist on adding a hook, you can cut the seam and sew a hook to it and do this in right measurement to your waist. Since the leggings I used has a rubber attached to it already, I didn’t bother with the hook.
This is the final stage, I added a little flavor to my fringed belt by braiding it through (joining three pieces together)
There you have your fringed belt! Let me see how you styled yours and #stylelately on instagram so I get to see it too. I hope to style mine real soon and I can’t wait to share with you.
