It has three sections: 2 zippered outside pockets that sandwich a middle section divided into 3 snug pockets (great for glasses, pens and cell phone). The belt can be interchanged with other belts or scarves to change the look. Two sizes are included in the pattern - small, which is shown, (approx 5 1/2" high by 8 1/2" wide) and medium (approx 6" high by 10" wide).

I love to come up with a creative approach to a conventional need. My mother has been a great influence on me. She has always been very creative and resourceful. And she tells me that my great-grandmother was a terrific seamstress, too (which I do not claim to be!).
In addition to my sewing patterns, I have designed unconventional lamps, window coverings, table accessories and wall hangings. My inspiration comes from pretty much everything around me.
I left the corporate world in 2001. Although I have been creative in varying degrees ever since I can remember, now I get to be creative full time - a total dream come true. I live with my husband, a woodworker, and 2 dogs in beautiful, rural Chatham County, North Carolina.
