Hemming pants and a belt from the leftovers!

the pants from soulflower
I bought a pair of hemp cargo pants from for Rob, but they were too long. The bottom hem was a simple fold-over with stitching, so I hemmed the pants to fit him! I ended up cutting about 5 inches off the bottom of each leg, so I had a lot of leftover material. Since the material is 60% hemp / 40% cotton, I didn't want to just throw it away! So I decided to make a nice hemp belt for myself!
