Berkeley Wrapit Loom Belt

PROJECT C7013
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Vibrant rows of Czech glass tri-cut seed beads in a bold chevron pattern come together in this Boho style Wrapit Loom belt with an adjustable closure. Connect all four loom tracks from two Wrapit Loom Professional Series Duos to make this extra long loomed piece!
Instructions
You will need two Wrapit Loom Professional Series Duo packages to make this project. These supplies will make a 32 inch belt. For a longer belt, you will need to purchase an additional tube of each color of 6/0 seed bead.
  1. To begin, please watch our video on how to make a triple wrap bracelet using the Wrapit Loom. In this video you'll see how to attach multiple Wrapit Loom tracks together to make an extra long piece (for this project you will attach four tracks from two Wrapit Loom Professional Series Duos). You'll also see how to size and knot your leather, and how to set up and start weaving your loom piece. Size the leather to your waist or hips, wherever you want your belt to sit, and leave room on the end of your leather for multiple button closure loops.
  2. While weaving the belt, you will need to add two new cards of Griffin Silk thread. Please watch our video on how to add additional thread to a bracelet on the Wrapit Loom to see how.
  3. To start your belt, weave your beads in the following pattern: (Row one) 1 turquoise seed bead, (Row two) 2 turquoise seed beads, (Row three) 1 dark blue seed bead, 1 turquoise seed bead, 1 dark blue seed bead, (Row four) 4 dark blue seed beads.
  4. Now you'll begin weaving rows of 5 beads each, following the color pattern shown. Follow this pattern for the desired length of your belt.
  5. To end your belt, simply taper off the last color you are working with, decreasing to one row of 4, one row of 3, one row of 2, and one row of 1.
  6. Tie off and knot your Griffin Silk as shown in the video, and add glue to your knots. Create extra knots in your leather for several button closure loops, so you can adjust the size.
  7. Enjoy your belt!
Remember, you will need two Wrapit Loom Professional Series Duo packages to make this project.
