Hippity, Hip, Hip
My friend at Old Navy had wanted a
hip pouch fanny pack. I had seen a few patterns for making an actual fanny pack with it being gusseted and all. I wasn’t sure about how I could make it so I hesitated. I had read somewhere that you could basically make one by using a regular zip bag and attaching some straps to it. I think I read that on Maggie Whitley aka Gussey Sews instagram.
So I set out to make one just like that. I made a zip bag/pouch and added straps to the sides to wrap around her waist. She has kind of an eclectic taste so after we found some prints that she liked I set to it.
After using it for a while, she mentioned that it’s actually kinda hard to use with the closure being knotted. So in the future I think I’ll have to come up with another way to make the straps close. I’m thinking maybe using a buckle, parachute closures, or even a swivel clasp/d-rings. The possibilities are endless!
