DIY Runner Belt

The perfect gift to your active friend. Or perhaps as a gift to yourself 🙂  I have a tutorial that shows How To Make a Running Belt that will look very profesh but is actually really easy to sew and with no pattern required. Again a perfect way to use up some leftover fabric scraps and notions.
