One of the first things I made in sewing, is a bag that I carry around my ankle when I go out. I really can't dance with a purse in my hand or around my shoulder. I used to put everything in my shoes or socks, but by accident I made something extremely practical  Grin
Further on this little one is sooo easy: no snaps, no zippers, but everything stays inside (coins, a key, a banc card, ...)! All you need are some fabric scraps and a piece of elastic.
You can make it into a belt or you can adjust the size (cell phone, camera,...), but I didn't tried it out yet.








Like usual I used recycled fabrics. This one is made from a vintage dress and a piece of bed sheet. It's really not complicated but if anyone likes a tutorial for this, as a still very bad sewer I would be proud to give something back (I already learned so much from Craftster!)

Thanks for looking Smiley

How practical and cute. I keep on meaning to make something similar to attach to the inside of my boots because I hate having to bring a bag with me and even if I'm wearing trousers I can't put anything in the pockets that has any bulk at all. I love it, must get round to designing hands free storage for my person...

This is great!  It would be really practical for someone jogging - can keep a few things in there - keys and such - and not worry about the bulk/losing them, etc!  I might have to try it one day, too - great idea! Grin

I remember stuffing my $ in my socks when going out.   This is a GREAT idea!

I would love to see a tutorial.  I am a runner but dreading the summer when I won't have my handy gloves with their secret key compartment.  This little pouch could solve all my problems!
Thanks, Natalie

This is cute & very smart. A lot of people in the big cities (like my daughter) who go out dancing & stuff need something like this that's secure. Yes, a tutorial would be appreciated - thanks!

Here we go  Cheesy  I am very sorry for the small letters, but if something isn't clear, don't hesitate to ask!
