I am making this purse for my niece. I have it done except the strap. I have this old studded belt that I want to attach somehow but I need ideas how to do so! My needles won't go thru the thick belt.

 That's cute! Maybe make some reinforced loops and put the belt through that?? I'm not a sewer, so I don't know if that will work or not.

I am not sure what you mean by putting the belt thru loops, I love that idea but still unsure how to attach it lol

 Sew loops on each side of the purse and then put the belt through the loops for a shoulder strap... I don't know if I'm making sense, I usually don't. LOL!

The reinforced loop sounds like the perfect idea.

You could use gromets to attach it? Not sure. Cute idea though!

This is what I was thinking, since I am nervous to sew thru the belt.
