Lo-Sew Corded Belt

Designed ByeXpresSew®


Two belt styles inspired by the Custom Corder™ byKreinik. Combine colorful twisted cords with ribbons or webbing for subtle stylethat won’t quit.

Before you can get your supplies, figure out how you plan to wear your belt,either around your waist or upper hips. Find this measurement with a tapemeasure to see out how much ribbon or webbing you’ll need.

Now, read over the instructions that came with the Custom Corder™: See how toknot together a combination of threads and use the Custom Corder™ to twist thethreads together into a “ply”. Each part of a twisted cord is called a ply.You’ll be making 2-ply cord.

Measure out each cord as long as you need. Knot threads together at each end. Ifyou want a certain color to stand out, cut 2 lengths of that thread. Experiment.Sometimes the cords turn out differently than you expect, but they’re alwaysfun to see.

Loop one knotted end around a drawer knob or somewhere similar and hook theother end around on the Custom Corder™. Stand back so the threads are pulledtightly. To twist the threads, turn the handle of the Custom Corder™ untilthey start to kink, or twist back on themselves. Hang the weight in the middleof the cord. Step in closer to loosen the twisted cord and the weight will causethe threads to double up and twist on themselves. This is the fun part. Onceyou’re happy with the cord, lift the far end off the knob and knot endstogether.



REVERSIBLE RIBBON BELT

Supplies togather:

  • Tape measure.
  • Two pieces of ribbon that look good together each long enough to equal the body measurement you found earlier.
  • Metallic thread by Kreinik, in a variety of colors to match both ribbons – two spools each in 2 or 3 different colors. (You’ll have trouble deciding which to choose, there are so many great colors.) Stick with the following thicknesses: #16 Medium Braid, #32 Heavy Braid, 1/16” Ribbon, 1/8” Ribbon or Facet.
  • Custom Corder™ by Kreinik.
  • Thread to match.
  • Sewing machine.
  • Iron.

Cut pieces of thread 50” long anduse the Custom Corder™ to create the first cord. Make 5 more exactly alikeuntil you have 6 altogether. Adjust the knots on one end so each cord isapproximately 15” long. Trim the loose ends and let the tails fray. (Diag. 1).click here to see diagrams

Stitch three cords each to the end of one ribbon. Press the seam allowances backtoward the ribbon. (Diag. 2). Press under the ends of the second ribbon so thatribbons are still the same length.

With wrong sides together, pin the ribbons together. Stitch completely aroundthe outside edges of the ribbon and stitch twice at each end to secure thecords. (Diag. 3). Press the ribbon flat if necessary.

 



WEBBING BELT WITH CORDS AND BEADS

Supplies to gather:

  • Tape measure.
  • Nylon webbing - one piece long enough to equal the body measurement you found earlier.
  • Metallic thread by Kreinik, in a variety of colors to match both ribbons – two spools each in 2 or 3 different colors. (You’ll have trouble deciding which to choose, there are so many great colors.) Stick with the following thicknesses: #16 Medium Braid, #32 Heavy Braid, 1/16” Ribbon, 1/8” Ribbon or Facet.
  • Custom Corder™ by Kreinik.
  • Thread to match webbing.
  • Pony beads in colors that match.
  • White glue for jewels or beads.
  • Sewing machine.
  • Iron.


Cut pieces of thread 3 times as long as the webbing measurement and use theCustom Corder™ to create your cord. Cut cord in the same colors 50” long andmake two additional cords for the ties. Adjust the knots on one end so each cordis approximately 15” long. Trim the loose ends and let the tails fray. (Diag.1). click here to see diagrams

Thread the belt cord with pony beads in any one color or combination of colorsyou like. (Diag. 4). Add pony beads to make five sets of colors altogether. Addone set of beads to the tie cords.

Pin the belt cord to the webbing. Make sure both are equal in length. Baste thecord and webbing ends together. Baste one tie end to each webbing end right ontop of the belt cord. Fold the ends in half and stitch with the sewing machine.(Diag. 5).

Pull the tie cord out at each end so webbing is right side out. Glue each endneatly. Place belt out flat on a table and space the sets of beads evenly. Gluebeads to the webbing with jewel glue or stitch securely. (Diag. 6).
