I decided to try a more modern version of the fanny pack. This is what I came up with. What do you think? My husband says it is still cheesy, so I need some honest opinions here.
I am not planning to wear a fanny pack for the rest of my life, so that is why I made it work three different ways. 1) With a long strap tied to each side made for across the shoulder. 2) Attatch a smaller tie and it becomes a wristlet. 3) Use the buckles sewn on the back or the ones on the side for a belt like fanny pack.
The inside is complete with a pocket for my cell phone, chap-stick, and a key ring.
I also made a matching slim wallet for my cards, a pen, and receipts. I really love this one! Oh, and I must not forget to mention that this fabric was thought up by my good friend Jodi. I was planning to make a skirt with the fabric, until I got it in the mail and I realized I ordered canvas instead of regular quilting fabric. Oh Well.
Anyhow, the fanny pack may not be back yet, but I think it was a good effort, and a great creation nevertheless. If you are lucky someday I will figure out how to make a pattern or tutorial to post on this blog and then you can make your own fanny pack.
