30 Second Belt Fix

I love the look of a skinny belt over a button-up shirt, or a shirt and light cardigan.  So I was excited when I found one during a trip to the thrift store, the same trip that I found this belt.  (Yes, it's been sitting around that long... which is why I'm on a project-acquisition fast.)  The problem was that it was too big, by about 6" or more.

Then as I was about to walk out the door to church I decided I needed the belt to complete my outfit and just went for it. I put it on and marked where I would need to make a hole to fit just right and stabbed it with an awl. 

Then I cut off the excess with a rounded edge.

And it was done!

 Seriously it took 30 seconds.  I am so happy with it!

What kind of ultra fast projects have you done? 

I'll be linking up to these fabulous link parties!
