Hip Bag

I made myself a new bag! It works both as a belt bag (hip sack... fanny pack...) and holds my phone and wallet. I can also wear it as a crossbody bag.

I used the free pattern for the Fifth Avenue bag from Sallie Tomato. It comes with a youtube tutorial for the bag and I used this tutorial to remind me how to do an inset pocket.

The bag took me about 2 hours to make and I'm thinking these might make nice gifts for friends.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. It looks really good, and so practical! I'll admit that I don't wear, and have never used a fanny pack. I don't like the way it emphasizes my hips or belly. So it's a shoulder bag for me. Though I wouldn't be averse to trying a cross-body bag, mostly for security reasons though. In any case, I like yours and the fabrics you used!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
