Costume Belt - Embellishments begin!

I added the skirt hooks to my belt. Now, it stays on by itself, and fits quite nicely!

Next, I constructed the base of the medallion that will cover the closure in the front. That needs to be embellished before it can be attached.

Then, I began embellishing! I sketched my design on pattern paper, and used tracing paper to transfer the design to the belt. Then, I began sewing... boy, this is going to take a while... but it is going to be worth it! Here's my first swirl (modeled by my lovely pasta pot)...

The belt will be covered with this type of embellishment... stay tuned for more progress!
