Fabric Belt for Boys

My son just went through another growth spurt. I'm bummed because his pants were finally not falling off, and now they are too short. So here's my solution, a belt for the new pants!!!

I had some ribbon, bias tape and heat n' bond left from another project, so I simply had to pruchase the D-rings.

I used the heat n' bond instead of pins to hold the bias tape in place. The blue ribbon was slippery and I felt it worked better than if I had pinned it.

I tried to get some action shots, but my son doesn't really STOP unless he's eating or sleeping. This is the best I could do. As you can see, the belt did the trick and he is no longer losing his pants.

I'm linking to some fun parties today:

We have the same problem over at our house. Love the belt and the fact that it is a craft for a BOY!
