Kid's Hip Pouch or Fanny Pack for Boys or Girls

Debbie Colgrove, Licensed to About.com
This is a great way for the kids to carry their own money and at the same time, it is securely attached to them so it won't be left behind on a ride or store shelf. Make this same fanny pack for a grown up and they have a great place to hold their camera, extra batteries or necessities for the day.

Materials:

  • 1/4 yard of 45" wide fabric (this will make 2 pouches)
  • 1/2 yard of craft weight interfacing.
  • Zipper - 9" or longer (You can shorten a zipper using these instructions) I prefer a large tooth and large pull zipper when I am sewing something for a child because it is easier for their little fingers and less likely to jam and end up breaking. (Learn more about Types of Zippers)
  • Webbing or Belting straps - 1" by the waist measurement plus 12" (If you are not sure of the waist measurement, take a look at pattern waist measurements and allow a bit extra.)
  • Buckle- such as Dritz® Quick Release Clip (Dritz® Quick Release Clip or Strapworks Non-Slip Buckle-Fits 1" Strappingat Joann.com)
Cutting and Prepping:
  • Cut two pieces of fabric 9" by 11"
  • Cut four pieces of craft weight interfacing 9" by 11"
  • Fuse two pieces of the interfacing to the wrong side of each piece of fabric.
