Fanny Packs are Back! Or Are They?

Ok, so we are going to Disney World in September, and I was thinking that I might need something that is hands free to put all my junk in. Fanny packs came to mind, but the scary ones from my childhood in the 80's. Mine was florescent pink and neon green, and it was the bulgy scary looking type.

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.
