My felted belt has a long story which begins with my apparent weight gain. I had this old leather belt that couldn't stand life anymore, so it broke as I was walking down the hallway at work. Yes, leather broke because it wasn't strong enough. So after a few cupcakes for reassurance I decided to knit a belt and reuse the buckle. I found a pattern for a felted military belt, knit it up and felted. (It still needs a bit more felting but I ran out of laundry to do.) I attached it to the buckle and then did a weaving pattern with the yarn and needle. All told, a groovy belt that fits my girth. Plus it is cow friendly.
Hmmm...apparently I am not smart enough to get two photos in here, but if you look at my gallery there should be a close up of the buckle work.
