DIY: Fanny Pack Inspired by I Spy DIY

When I read Jenny's post on how to DIY a DVF-inspired waist bag, I immediately knew I had a perfect pouch I could DIY into a fanny pack!  It's a thrifted red Clinique cosmetic pouch and the design on it looks like hand-drawn lines.  My thrifted pouch already had two strong loops (one on each side), so all I needed to purchase was a linky belt (or plastic white chain like this would've worked as well) and two carabiners.

supplies: a pouch with side loops, linky belt, two carabiners
Link it all up...

and wear it as a funky shoulder bag...

...or as a handy fanny pack ;)

If your pouch does not already have loops make your own loops by following Jenni's instructions here.  Do it yourself and improvise!
Here's an interesting WSJ article With Fanny Packs on the Runway, Can Mom Jeans Be Far Behind?

  5. I love all your DIY posts! This is so stinking cool. Love the little drawn lines on the pouch... you've got me wishing I had held onto all those free makeup bags I've been given! xx
