Ooh, I love this!  I might have to make one to carry stuff when I go hiking.  I have a rather unstylish fannypack right now (because who cares what you look like when you're out in the wilderness getting sweaty?) but hey, if you *can* look good, why not?  Wink

Hi! I'm fairly new to this site so this is my first post of something I made. I LOVED this idea and had to make one up. I did change the way the belt works by just using one square ring instead of two D rings, and I also used a zipper under the flap to keep the pocket closed. I took it antique-ing yesterday and it was so wonderful to have my hands totally free, but still not have the huge bulk of a traditional fanny pack. I do need to adjust the belt a little bit as I made it WAY too long, but it still works fine for now (need to get my sewing machine back from the repair shop first  Embarrassed).

This is so good!  Very practical, but much better looking than a bum bag.  Cheesy

Yes, yes, I agree!! It's a fabulous hip bag and great choice of fabrics. Just thinking that I need a new style of bag that'll work on my bike rides.  I have a bunch of leftover "D" rings to reuse instead of finding the beeners. Maybe not as hip but, in my case, an eco-choice.  Thanks again for the inspiration!

I make therefore I am.

I saw this thread a very long time ago and KNEW I would have to make this one day!  I started taking sewing lessons from a seamstress and decided these would be my first project!  The camo print one is for my husband, and the first one I made.  The blue one was my second try and is 1000% percent better!  I added cool patches, and on my blue one, I added this really pretty lace ribbon I found at Joann's in the clearance bin.  I kept both of them square because I like it better.  We are going to Transformus this week (spin-off of burning man for the east coast) and we are taking these to hold our cell phones, and other things we don't want to carry!!  I thank the original poster for making such great instructions.

Thanks for the tute!  Since sturdy was important, time was short and measuring was out of the question...
My interpretation

I went with a zipper under the flap to keep the kids out

And a raygun pocket just because! Cheesy

Didn't take a pic of the clasp, but it is held on with two D-rings and would fit at least two of me, and I'm not small! Roll Eyes

I'm joining in too.
50p of remnant material, a guy's shirt from a charity shop, some sharpies, sewing machine, thread, scissors and a great tutorial gives you this:
