Introduction

Chella Bella Crocheted Belt

Nothing says spring like flowers! This belt is a quick and fun “I’m so glad it’s finally warming up” gift for every girl you know! Go chic with a vintage buckle and yarn from a thrifted, recycled sweater. Or, glam it up with shimmery silk yarn and beaded fringe. Make it casual in cotton for a walk in the park. Proper fitting doesn’t get any easier than this measure-as-you-go belt. Wrap your waist (and everyone else’s) in this versatile bouquet.
