This is a belt I just finished. I took it to my local needlepoint shop, and they will send it away to the little people that do the finishing touches. In this case backed with leather and made into a belt.
I made this belt, below, for my husbands birthday in March.
On this particular belt I choose saddle brown leather and a brass buckle. The leather color options are plentiful.
It is always such a great day when you receive your belt back from the finisher.
