What are you most proud of? I am proud to have a fantastic garter belt that I made myself. I am also proud that I finally had the guts to cut into those fabrics!

I love the colors! So beautiful (and like you said, they do remind me of Mardi Gras). You also just gave me inspiration to cut up an old, ill-fitting, brocade dress I made years ago and put the fabric to better use!!!

Glad to help out! It's a great way to use cool fabric that would otherwise wallow in obscurity. I love this garter belt!
