Embroidered flowers & birds belt

 

My second entry to the Minne/So-en handmade competition - I thought I might not have enough time to finish it, but here it is, just 23 hours before registration closes!

This one is for the "embroidered belt" category. The winner for this category will be determined by stylist Rika Endo

I'm too chubby to model this myself, so I put it on my daughter's dress.

The embroidered band is 18.5inches long and 2.75 inches wide. There are about 30 inches of grosgrain ribbon on both sides, so it can be worn many ways. 

OK now my fingers are seriously achy. Time for lunch!
