Cute idea - I love it.
Too bad though, I am way too paranoid to put money and ID in something like that.
I'm like one of the old granny's who lock their purse into their shopping cart when I'm out!

i made one with a zipper on it (so change can't fall out) and  i made the band long enough to wear right above my calf, but below my knee (does that make sense) and i wear it under my pants when i go to shows, etc.  i love it.  its perfect.  oh and i must add !!TUTORIAL!!, so that when i am searching for all my fave tutes i can find it Smiley

Sign of a great tutorial: Almost two years later people are still seeing it and proclaiming, "Hey. I should do that." Not surprising, considering it's the brainchild of the same person who thought up craftster.org, but I digress. Cool

I checked out this thread because when I'm on-call, I have two devices with me at all times, a Blackberry and a phone. Why I don't use the Blackberry as the phone is a long story. Suffice to say: two devices. Being a chick, often no pockets. This causes chaos when foraging for food in the cafeteria and various and sundry other daily tasks at work. I saw this thread and the lightbulb went on. Last night I finished what I've dubbed my Geek Belt, which I wore proudly around my upper arm today:

A shot from above, then one of the cellphone and Blackberry holders, respectively. Because of the weight of the Blackberry, I had to opt for a slide-on style with elastic inside instead of velcro. It was actually surprisingly comfortable and, yes, when both devices were turned to silent, I could even tell which one was vibrating and respond accordingly.

Apparently, there was a bet going on as to what the thing was on my arm. The person who won went with, "Knowing Regan, there's no telling what it was." That fits Craftster so well, I think I may have to use it as my avatar caption. Wink

i was looking around, about to write a "discussions and questions" post on what would be the best way to go about making an armband case for my sony hi-MD walkman... and lo and behold, i found this thread *insert heavenly music here*. i'm definitely going to use this tute asa  starting point. it's going to take some measuring to make holes for the input/output jacks. Smiley also, i might use a thick elastic band instead of a ribbon so it'll stay when i jog and stuff.
i really want to use this tute to make a place to stash stuff when i go to the club. the idea of putting it above the calf but below the knee was right on track with what i was thinking! i try putting stuff in my bra when i go but my ID always causes me to have a sort of "square boob syndrome," as i like to call it.  Grin
wonderful idea!
