Kristina wanted a belt bag and I wanted to make one. How was the question. So looking in our stash I came across this cute toddler skirt made of blue jean patches. So cute! Should be pretty roomy and the small waist would make a good size to hook to an adults belt and best of all it already has belt loops!

I sewed the bottom of the skirt with a nice tight straight stitch and then again with a decorative stitch (I like those, my Singer does like 15 different ones). I probably should have lined it but was having so much fun I didn't think about it!

I wanted to add a pocket to the front and chose a 'patchy' pink on pink scrap we had. I folded over the top and added a piece of elastic so the pocket would be roomy but keep it's contents inside (I think I pulled the elastic a bit too much but oh well). I sewed the bottom up a bit so that there would be even more room inside the pouchy pocket. Then I sewed up the sides.  

Needs something....Added a pretty shiny pink button in the middle of the pocket at the top. I pulled the elastic to each side some so that the button would help stop it from pulling so tight. Yeah, definitely should have used an inch or so more elastic.


Here is the finished belt bag. Well almost finished, I need to add a couple grommets and a cord so that we can close up the top a bit. Otherwise, done!
