This needlepoint cabana belt is from Julia’s Needleworks. I did a few little pattern stitches here and there, nothing fancy, just the Smryna cross. I used overdyed Gloriana silk for the sky and decided to continental stitch it, since overdyes can be stripey.
Susan, from Voila C’est Fini, came up with a great idea for, ahem, when your belts no longer fit (not that this ever happens, of course): you can turn them into straps for tote bags! Either way, they make for great Christmas present gifts.
