It’s a clear winner.
Are you a fan of the fanny? We are! Learn how to make one with updated materials like Dritz racer stripe belting and a parachute buckle fastener. Couple these bag making supplies with transparent vinyl, and simple sewing techniques and you’ll be wearing one in no time. Hands-free convenience for sporting events, concerts and just plain fun!
They really are a thing. “Fanny” pack may be a misnomer in fact, since you can wear it across the back, or like a cross-body bag. Our fashion blogger, Laura, from Trash To Couture, came up with this project idea for us after seeing clear fanny packs all over New York Fashion Week. Ready to make one?
Next you’ll add the zipper and begin sewing the vinyl pieces together (jump over to Trash To Couture to see full assembly details). Note that Dritz Getta Grip® Sewing Clips are a great tool to use during this process because they don’t pierce the vinyl.
Finish assembling the pack’s pocket …
After the pack’s pocket is complete you’ll add the strap, which is made using 1-1/2″ striped belting and a parachute buckle.
You like the stripes? They’re a new addition to the Dritz offering of belting/strapping. The belting comes in a 2-yard length and is available in 4 color combinations (red/white/blue, brown/tan, black/white and navy/white). It is 100% polyester, but is really soft to the touch and feels more like cotton. Check out all of the new striped and solid polyester belting.
It’s ready to go! No matter how you wear it, you’ll look fab sporting this trendy, yet easy-to-make, accessory.
