Necessary but dull

 Today has been a day of dull, but necessary, sewing as I needed to shorten a pair of new trousers. 
I have a bag full of scraps of trouser-bottom off-cuts, but for once I put at least part of it to use.

 The trousers didn't have any belt loops and as I'd bought a slightly large size, rather than pour myself into a smaller one, the waist was a little loose. 
So it was off-cuts to the rescue - four pieces of material, folded to hide the raw edges and....ta dah... belt loops!
