As an extra treat, here are some pics of the denim garter belt that I made for Demitra. She wanted to surprise Kiya, so I didn’t post them before. The garter belt is made from a pair of selvage denim jeans that we cut up at the Self Edge shorts party. Coincidentally, this very piece of denim was the first thing I used to test out the chain stitch machine the day we brought it home.
The clasping mechanism is really simple, but a little difficult to describe in text. I added a hook to one end of the fabric that hooks into the stitches between the two pieces of denim (they are chain stitched together).
