Also called modern fanny packs or bum bags, these are way more convenient than traditional purses, especially if you’re plodding around a festival or a fair all day.
Here’s how to make one in 3 Super Easy Steps!
-A small purse/bag/pouch
-scrap of leather/other strong fabric
-needle and thread
Put your belt on and hold the bag/purse against your belt. This will help you to see where to put the scrap of fabric. I didn’t do this first, and just sewed it on the only way I thought of:
This made the bag stick out from my hip too far. So I had to rip it out and start over again.
Sew the scrap of fabric to the back of the bag. You’ll sew the top and bottom of the scrap, leaving the middle open.
This will create a loop to slide the belt through:
Wear your belt bag and marvel at your handiwork!
