Make the Perfect Fanny Pack!

I never thought to see the day that a Fanny Pack would be cool again!  I was in a Department Store the other day and they have a wide variety of Fanny Packs available.  They were all very nice (with lots of bling).  They are marketing these as “Belt Bags”.  I guess that calling these “Fanny Packs” isn’t the cool thing to say anymore, but let’s face it – they are Fanny Packs!  Fanny Packs are the perfect bag for travel or hands-free toting.  Let me share this latest pattern that I am just crazy about!  I’ve already made several and they come together so easily!  Follow along so you can make the perfect Fanny Pack too!  Don’t forget to watch the video tutorial!

Assembling the Fanny Pack pattern

Lindsay , with Linds Handmade Designs, does a fantastic job with this pattern.  It is written very clearly and the pictures help in the construction of this bag.  The pattern pieces are professionally done and easy to understand.  While there are a few seam allowance changes, throughout the construction of the bag, Linsday lets you know at every step.  I especially love how the bag comes together at the end.  It really is a fun sew.  You will be making many of these as they are very quick and simple to make!

I’ve been busy making Fanny Packs!

These have been lots of fun to make.  In just a short time, I’ve already made several with many requests from family and friends for custom orders.  Should I even add these to my ETSY SHOP?  Hmmm – I’m sure they would sell fast!  Check out these 2 others that I whipped up in no time!

Vinyl Accents with Webbing Strap

Using cork and vinyl was super easy with my Juki DU-1181N.  But don’t worry – you can also use your domestic sewing machine to make these as well!  I also loved using the webbing for the strap.  It was like cheating!  Super fast and easy strap!  I have many more of these planned!  There had to be a reason I was hoarding all that vinyl and cork fabric!  The little tassels are the cutest for finishing these off.  Don’t you just love them?  I hope you make a Dayna Pack.  Be sure to share your makes in my Facebook Group!

Happy Sewing!

    Hi again Nicole! What size rivets would you recommend for this tutorial, please? I’ll be ordering the Dayna Pack Pattern from your link also this week, but I saw on her supply list that she listed small rivets without specifying size, so I thought that maybe you might help me to know. Thanks again!

      Hi there! It all depends upon the thickness of your fabrics. I would think that a size 6-7 would work for cotton fabrics that are interferes with SF101. Hope that helps!
