Free Fanny Pack Patterns & Tutorials

Posted By Tipnut On October 19, 2011 @ 11:48 am In Sewing | 3 Comments

It was tough finding enough free patterns to make this project page but I think these will do the trick, there’s a nice variety here. You can sew zipped pouches to use for the fanny packs or use a ready-made one and carry on with the methods outlined in the tutorial. Most of these are sewing projects but there is one knitting pattern and one no-sew project. If I find anything new (original), I’ll add it to this list. I included a wrist pack and a runner’s belt since they function in a similar way but on a smaller scale (and they’re useful too). Enjoy!

Hip-Pouch [1]: Made with a fat quarter of fabric, mid-weight canvas, cotton webbing, a 10″ zipper and a 1″ buckle. Three-part tutorial, I linked to the last page since it references the other two parts.

DIY Waist Bag [2]: A ready-made zipped pouch of your choosing (make-up bag, pencil case, etc.), is transformed into a fanny pack by adding ribbon, chain and a carabiner (no-sew, uses a glue-gun).

Pocket Belt Tutorial [3]: Ideal for children to tote their small treasures, a pocket is made then sewn to a fabric strip (ties at waist). Free template download available (via pdf).

The Hipslinger [4]: A pouch (with foldover flap) is sewn then attached to a fabric waistband that has velcro & carabiner clips on each end.

Runner’s Utility Belt [5]: When a fanny pack is too large, this wee pouch on a belt will do the trick (zips closed).

Wrist Fanny Pack [6]: A length of ribbon is sewn to a zipper then snaps or velcro are added to the ends. Large enough to hold a stash of cash or a key or two.
