I have been loving the Obi Belt since I first saw them. I just could never bring myself to buy one. I tried a while ago to make one but that was soon scrapped:
Front of said scrapped Obi.
Said Obi on me. (Before I made the big chop.)
I made this one without a pattern from an upholstery fabric I founds in Big Lots. I never knew Big Lots sold fabric. It was $5 for 6 yards, if I am remembering correctly. The peach trim is a polyester lining that I gathered and had sewn to the burgundy fabric. There was no need to interface it since it was stiff enough to stand and walk away on it’s own!
So. It has been over a year since this belt has been made and discarded. Here’s to a new Obi. The instructions came from a YouTube tutorial.
Gems put on with the GemMagic to give it some oomph.
Well, that’s it on the Obi Belt.
Until later, Schey.
