Mens embroidered belts are rare and authentic vintage belts that are hand-embroidered with mirror work. Made of cotton, these belts can do the job for almost any kind of belly dancing costume, or even as a belt for a dress or outfit that you wear on a daily basis. The vibrant colors are elegantly matched to make heads turn toward you. They are sure to give you an authentic tribal, gypsy appeal.
Now you must be wondering about threads and stitches. Mens Embroidered belts use Tent Stitch since it wears so well. If your belt is about to be worn avoid stitches that cover more than three threads intersections or that are layered; If your belt will be used less heavily, as basket trim, for instance, you can use any stitch.
Belts that will be worn require threads that stand up to wear. The best choices for this are pearl cotton and wool. Avoid stranded threads since they can snag. Blends can wear raggedly and avoid any thread that pills for you. These threads can clutter up the belt rapidly.
When I’ve stitched the belts I’ve found the narrow canvas difficult to hold. Since the canvas is quite long, only scroll frames can work on appropriately on it. I’ve learned from my experience to be cautious. Do not stitch close by the rolled ends, you can easily stitch different layers together.
You know you want to stitch a belt, but you want it to be a bit personal than the canvases out there. It’s time to consider making a custom belt.
Needlepoint belts are quite adorable but when it comes to creating one, people usually make hard efforts. Which is why before you get them with you, it’s best to pick out the length, style, threads and design. These four are probably the most critical equipment in designing mens embroidered belt. Aside from that there are small things like canvas, needle, fibre which, if considered, are also important. Now, let’s get to the process of measuring and creating them.
Measuring Needlepoint Belts
For length: Wear your pant and then take measurement of your waist with a belt. Capture the measurement and deduct the length of the buckle you will be using. After this analysis, add six inches to its length. It enables for room for finishing.
For breadth: Decide the pattern first, and then measure the width according to the pattern. Else, you can measure the width based on the embroidered belt’s buckle. Add 2 inches on each side as you’ll need extra embroidery work on borders.
