There are some awesome lookin' hipslinger/fanny packs out there! Thanks, gals, for posting your pics. It puts a big 'ol fat grin on my face.

My hipslinger was the hottest 'fannypack' at Cedar Point (amusement park)!!

It came in handy because some of the rides, I had to take my glasses off, and they wouldn't let people put them in their pockets, but I could put mine in my hipslinger (so the protection bar wouldn't smoosh the glasses in your pockets).

Great idea, and I thank you!

When I saw this I was so inspired. So I made myself a cute little fanny pack that I take everywhere with me.

I am in love with it.

i've been meaning to make one of these for a while, but i just got around to it last night. i gave that one to my sister for her nintendo ds, and i'm making myself one later today. it'll be great for warped tour tomorrow because i don't want to carry around a backpack all day or have my phone and wallet fall out of my pockets.

I just made a 'fall flavored' hipslinger out of some wonderful vintage linen/canvasey stuff I found at a thrift store. The straps are a denim-y brown stuff. I think I'll tie it instead of using carabeeners, so I can do the shoulder/back option for carrying it sometimes. The inside is a brownish grid pattern. I love this idea. I think I'll make a couple more. Maybe one in velvet or something shiny. Thanks for the inspiration !!

Here's a pic of the hipslinger.

Here's me wearing it.

Here's a closeup of the tangerine zipper.

This is adorable! I love it. I think you should sell them! Seriously.

Summerbabi- They are fun aren't they?! rocknroar started a new trend. I read back there a few pages, and I think someone did buy one from her with a Japanese type fabric, maybe.

Looking for more 'vintage' type fabrics to make these out of. Maybe a 70's white and lavender polkadot knit?, or a vintage watermelon stripe knit with raspberrry tie.....mmmm....wheels turning....Smiley

The shape is soooooooo much better than the fanny pack certain people in my family wear. -it definitely deserves another name.   I have been wearing a coinpurse with a adjustable chain strap on it in this way and I love it because of the freedom it gives me when I go to concerts and want to dance. But I think I am going to try to make one of these because it looks more comfortable and pretty.

Ahh so cute! I went out with my family a few days ago and my aunt was wearing one of my grandad's old sporrans as a bumbag (fannypack, whatever. Rule Britannia, you smutty americans Tongue). It was quite terrifying, but I think I'm gonna have to make me one  Smiley
