The delightfully funny prttynpnk (which I always read as “Pretty in PUNK, even though it’s probably pink) over at Petty Grievances is holding Jungle January- the theme of the month is to use animal prints more often, because they are AWESOME. Well, the other ones showcased at her site are; this one is just a little doo-dad.
This is a belt I’ve made before, using Tilly’s tutorial. I’ve actually had the fabric for over one year, and this was just the kick I needed to finally make the damn thing.
This goes together pretty quickly, and doesn’t use much fabric. I used belting instead of interfacing so it’d be stiffer and more belt-like. It’s hard for me to wear belts; I don’t have much of a waist. I’m built much like a boy*, very up and down, except for some pretty great boobs (I like my boobs.)

I’m hoping to make a leopard skirt at some point, but it won’t be until at least March (I’m going to be in Belize for all of February). I also think it’d be neat to make bias-binding in leopard or other animal print, and use it on necklines, sleeves, hems, etc.
Thanks to prttynpnk for holding a fun theme month! Check out her site and see all the other great projects from the month.
What’s your favorite way to use animal print?
