Belt Bag Sewing Patterns: 30+ FREE Projects

belt bag sewing patternBelt bags, fanny packs, banana bags, bum bags, etc. –there are many names for them, but those super convenient bags or pouches that go around your waist or attach to your belt are really a must-have for an active lifestyle. 

These types of bags have been around since antiquity and were traditionally positioned in the front of the body so the wearer could protect their valuables from potential bandits.  In modern times with the ubiquity of things like smartphones, the concept seems all the more relevant.

A belt bag sewing pattern is a relatively simple and straightforward project usually suitable for near beginners.  The end product is something you'll be proud to wear around or give as a gift to a friend or loved one.  We've collected a long list of potential projects to help you select the one that's just right for you.
