|3.10 Belt 4|
I turned in the raw edges and tacked them with contrasting thread (easy to see to remove!) to keep the raw edges under control. I then slip stitched the two pieces together by hand.

|3.10 Belt 6 - completed belt decoration with brooches attached|
I am much more pleased with the result than the first belt decoration, firstly because it is much neater and well finished and secondly because I feel the shape now echoes nicely the shape of the printed and stitched shapes.
Finally, I printed the fabric which I had coloured yesterday for the belt. I wanted a subtle, barely there print and I think it has worked fairly well. Once it's dry I'll fold it into shape and see how it looks with the decoration.

Time for a cuppa now so off to put the kettle on.
