DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

Finished-Fanny-Pack-1-284x300 DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

I have an abundance of fat quarters that I have collected over time so I thought I would make something useful out of them.  I decided to make a fanny pack that you can take anywhere.  You can create this entire pack with two fat quarters, some 1″ strapping, a zipper and a parachute clip.  If you don’t have fat quarters you can use remnants or any other fabric in your stash or you can head over to fabric.com or use this 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby and purchase everything you need.

What you will Need:

  • Pattern
  • 2 fat quarters or remnants
  • 1/4 yd. Pellon 808 interfacing
  • 1″ webbing or strapping
  • 9″ Zipper
  • Parachute clip
  • Standard sewing supplies

What you will Need Fanny Pack

Step 1: DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

Cut out 2 pieces of outer fabric, two pieces of lining fabric and 2 pieces of interfacing from the pattern. Fuse the interfacing to the outer fabric pieces on the wrong side.

Step 2: DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

Cut a 10″ x 11″ rectangle of lining fabric and interfacing.  Fuse the interfacing to the lining fabric.

Step 3: DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

Place the square of fabric to one of the outer pieces right sides together and pin or clip.  Measure down 1.5″ from the top and draw a line horizontally that measures 9″.  Measure down 3/8″ and draw a second line.  Join the two lines so that you have created a box.  Inside the box center a third line that is 8″ long.  Add two lines going from the end of the line to the corners to forma triangle on each end.  Sew a line around the box.

Step 4: DIY Bum Bag Tutorial

Using a seam ripper and a small pair of scissors cut the 8″ line and the lines making the triangle without cutting through the stitching.  Push the square through the opening you just made and press.  Insert the zipper inside the box and sew around the edge.  Fold up the square so that the bottom lines up with the top of the pack.  Trace around the pack. Sew 1/4″ inside the line you just traced.  Cut off the excess around the stitching so that the pocket mirrors the shape of the pack.
