I love a good leather wrap belt… and a wide one with raw edges is more versatile than you think, and really easy to make as well! Photo above from She’s A Lady outfit post.

NOTE: if the suede side doesn’t have any markings, you can reverse the lacing and wear it suede side out. Also note that dyed leather WILL leave marks on your clothes initially. My hands were gray by the end of this DIY.

By trying to make my DIYs super easy to follow, I end up with 100 steps …the short version really is …measure, cut, snip holes, lace up, wear. It’s actually REALLY easy!

Go to Tandy Leather Factory to find out more about where to buy leather …you can get it online!

Have Fun!

    I can hear the sobs from here…someone is crying hysterically because they just got fired from Balmain for being too stupid to realize that this belt can be made at home!

    Maegan…you are putting those poor designers out of business! Well done, lad. Well done.

    (*as I throw my head back again, clear my throat and laugh borishly loud at those fool designers*)

    Best ever! Question: Do you think there is something you can spray or put on the raw/suede side to prevent the color transfer issue? Does the color just transfer from the raw side? Okay that was two questions! TIA.

    Super cute, but quick question, will the markings left from the leather wash off your clothing?

    Much Love

    I just made this with stuff from my fabric/ribbon box. I didn’t use leather, but instead I used my mom’s old jeans and a black ribbon. (I’m only 10 so I don’t have leather yet.)
