I spent the morning making a pattern for a crocheted hip band. Since it's a Steampunk theme I'm going to use washers at the ends of the fringe. But for a more traditional look you can use coins, bells or wooden beads. For pirate belly dancing you can use sea shells As I'm working on it, I can already visualize 3 or 4 more variations on a theme. I'm putting together a tutorial video and I'll share it when I have it made.
