Remember those dreadful fanny packs your parents wore everywhere in the 80s? Well, fashion always repeats itself and now the fanny pack style is back in full force!

However these days stylish fanny pack fashion dictates that one wear it over the shoulders (both in front and on the back are considered okay). But never mind what fashion gurus says, you do you and wear it however you like!

How do you make a crossbody fanny pack?

Today I will be showing you how to make your own version of a very simple fanny pack (also called bum bag, hip bag, or belt bag). The bag has two side flaps for increased comfort and comes with an adjustable belt that closes with a buckle. This way, you can easily convert it from a hip bag (or bum bag) to a crossbody bag that goes over your shoulders.

What are the Dimensions of this Hip Bag?

This simple fanny pack you are about to make measures approximately 5” x 8” (12.7cm x 20.3cm). The side width (thickness) of the bag is approximately 2.5” (6.35 cm).

This is a perfect size for carrying all your essentials such as keys, wallets, phone, and more without being bulky.

How Much Fabric Do I need for a Fanny Pack?

For this fanny pack pattern that I will show you how to make, you will need 1/2 yard (0.45m) of exterior fabric and 1/2 yard (0.45m) of lining fabric.

If you choose to use a thin cotton fabric for the exterior (like I did), I recommend adding 1/2 yard (0.45m) of fusible fleece or fusible interfacing for support. This is optional if you are using a thick fabric such as vinyl or canvas.

How do you make a fanny pack at home?

This basic yet stylish bag is very easy to make at home. All you will need is a home sewing machine and the following items:

MATERIALS:

  • EXTERIOR FABRIC – 1/2 yard (0.46 meters)
  • LINING FABRIC – 1/2 yard (0.46 meters)
  • FUSIBLE INTERFACING (optional) – 1/2 yard (0.46 meters). I used Pellon 987F Fusible Fleece. May not need if using medium to heavy-weight canvas or duck cloth for the exterior.
  • 9″ ZIPPER – for front pocket
  • 12″ HEAVY DUTY ZIPPER – for top pocket. I recommend using a double zip for ease of use (speaking from personal experience!). However, one zip is fine as well.
  • 1″ WIDE WEBBING – 1 Yard (91.44 cm)
  • 1″ PARACHUTE BUCKLES (x1) – I got mine at Hobby Lobby. Also available on Amazon.
  • 1″ STRAP ADJUSTERS (x1) – I got mine at Hobby Lobby. Also available on Amazon.

STEP-BY-STEP SEWING TUTORIAL

First, before you start, make sure to apply the interfacing (if using) to the appropriate fabric pieces.

SEWING FRONT ZIPPER POCKET

How to add zipper end covers and sew Front Zipper

Fold each of the zipper end covers in half and pin them on both ends of zipper. Make sure the folded edge face the zipper pull. Baste zipper covers down to zipper. For more information about basting, check out How to Sew a Basting Stitch

Hip Belt Bag How to Sew Front Zipper 1

Pin and stitch [FRONT ZIPPER TOP PIECE] to zipper, right sides together, at 1/2”(12.7mm) seam allowance

Next, pin and stitch [FRONT ZIPPER BOTTOM PIECE] to zipper, right sides together, at 1/2”(12.7mm) seam allowance. The front of your bag with zipper pocket will look like the right photo.

Flip front of bag to wrong side. Fold [FRONT ZIPPER TOP PIECE] down (red arrow).

Hip Bag Sewing Lining to Front Zipper

LEFT: Pin and sew [FRONT TOP ZIPPER LINING PIECE] to zipper, right sides together (yellow dotted line).
RIGHT: Top stitch seam allowance to lining.

Note that [FRONT ZIPPER TOP PIECE] is pushed to the left side so you are only sewing the lining and the seam allowance.

LEFT: Another view showing seam allowance top stitched to the lining. See how only the lining is sewn down to the seam allowance. [FRONT ZIPPER TOP PIECE] is not part of the top stitching.
RIGHT:Fold down (red arrow) the top portion of the zipper pocket (lining + exterior) so that right side of zipper is facing up.

Hip Bag Sewing Lining to Front Zipper2

LEFT: Pin and sew [FRONT BOTTOM ZIPPER LINING PIECE] to zipper, right sides together (yellow dotted line).
RIGHT: Top stitch seam allowance to lining (yellow dotted line), as you did previously.

Sewing Front zipper Pocket Back Piece to front of bag

Pin/clip [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET BACK PIECE] to front of bag. In the next steps we will refer to the front of bag as [FRONT OF BAG]

Shows how front of bag is larger than front zipper pocket back piece

Most of the time, your [FRONT OF BAG] will be larger than [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET BACK PIECE]. This is normal!

In my example, the area shaded in orange is the part of [FRONT OF BAG] that extends beyond [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET BACK PIECE]. Note that f your [FRONT OF BAG] and [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET PIECE] are exactly the same size, no trimming necessary!

Here is a photo from one of our lovely readers. Note how her [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET BACK PIECE] is about 0.75”shorter than [FRONT OF BAG]. In this case, you can either trim off the excess from the bottom of [FRONT OF BAG] or you can trim off equal amounts (3/8 in) from the top and bottom. Use your best judgement! At the end of the day, as long as both pieces of fabric are the same size, you’ll be fine.

LEFT: Baste [FRONT OF BAG] to [FRONT ZIPPER POCKET BACK PIECE] (yellow dotted line). Trim excess zipper and any excess [FRONT OF BAG] fabric.
RIGHT: Your front bag zipper pocket is now done!

LEFT: Fold [ZIPPER END COVER] in half length-wise.
RIGHT: With the zipper fully zipped, place folded edge right against zipper pull and pin in place.

Fold second piece of [ZIPPER END COVER] in half and place it on other end of zipper, a distance of 12.25”(28.5 cm) away, as pictured. Make sure the folded edge of [ZIPPER END COVER] faces towards the middle of the zipper.

Put [ZIPPER PIECE] over, right side facing right side of zipper. Hold in place with pins or clips. Make sure side edge of [ZIPPER PIECE] matches exactly with ends of [ZIPPER END COVER].

NOTE: Move the [ZIPPER END COVER] along the zipper if it’s not matching exactly with edge of [ZIPPER PIECE].

Use a zipper foot and stitch [ZIPPER PIECE] to zipper.

Top stitch [ZIPPER PIECE] using matching thread. Press.

Put other [ZIPPER PIECE] over bottom of zipper, right sides together. Pin/clip in place.

Sew [ZIPPER PIECE] to zipper and top stitch with matching thread.

Place [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE] over zipper and note if there is any excess fabric on the zipper (red arrows) that is wider than [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE].

Trim excess with rotary cutters or scissors.

Pin or clip left and right side of [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE] to zipper.

LEFT: Another view of [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE] clipped to zipper
RIGHT: Stitch sides together at 1/2”(12.7mm) seam allowance

SEWING BAG LINING

Hip Bag Sewing Pattern  - Sewing Lining2

Using a matching colored thread, stitch down seam allowance towards [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE] at 1/8”(3mm). Repeat on other side.

HOW TO SEW BAG STRAP & BUCKLE

Materials needed for sewing side Straps

Cut your 1” wide webbing into two pieces, one measuring 4.5”(11.4cm) long, and the other piece 31.5” (80cm). Iron on interfacing to [FLAP PIECE]. I used fusible fleece in this case.

Sewing Side Straps-1

Thread the 4.5”(11.4cm) long piece through the female end of the buckle. Meet the ends of the webbing, clip and basted in place (yellow dotted line).

DIY Fanny Pack Sewing Side Straps2

LEFT: With right side of [FLAP PIECE] facing up, place buckle with webbing over short edge, 1/2” (12.7mm) from the top edge.
RIGHT: Place second [FLAP PIECE] over, right sides. together. Clip in place and sew (black dotted line)

RIGHT: Turn flap piece with buckle to right side.

DIY Fanny Pack Sewing Side Straps4

Repeat making other side of [FLAP PIECE] with the long (31.5 in) piece webbing. Photo shows other flap piece complete with corners clipped at a diagonal.

Fanny Pack Sewing Pattern - Stitching side straps to bag

LEFT: Turn flap piece with webbing to right side and cut off the excess triangle at the bottom. At this point you may also choose to top stitch around the edge of the flap pieces for reinforcement (black dotted lines). Sorry, I completely forgot to do this in my demo!
RIGHT: Clip flap pieces to [BACK PIECE], 0.75”(19mm) from top edge. Baste in place (black dotted line)

NOTE: When basting the flaps, make sure to do it within the seam allowance. This means that your baste line will be a distance of less than 1/2”(12.7mm) from edge of fabric. This way, when you sew the [BACK PIECE] to the rest of the bag later, your basting stitch will be hidden in the seam allowance.

SEWING BAG TOGETHER

Prior to sewing the bag pieces together, you will need to mark the midpoint of all the pieces. First, fold each of the pieces in half and make a small diagonal cut on the fold. You will end up with a little notch that looks like the photo (right)

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Togther

Black arrows show all the places where midpoint needs to be marked. You will do this for the exterior fabric as well as lining.

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Togther1

Pin [FRONT PIECE] and [BACK PIECE] to the [ZIPPER/SIDE/BOTTOM PIECE], right sides together. Match at the midpoints.

The following photo tutorial show how to sew the bag together at the corners. Note the photos use a black colored lining fabric (instead of the blue lining), but the process is exactly the same!

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Together-2

LEFT: At the corners, make a few shallow cuts on [ZIPPER/SIDE/BOTTOM PIECE]. This allows the fabric to “spread”so it’s easier to pin it to the corner of [FRONT PIECE].
RIGHT: Your pinned corner will look something like the photo

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Together-3

To sew the corner, go slowly and walk the foot if necessary. Make sure to smooth out any fabric on the left so the fabric doesn’t bunch up on itself (this creates unsightly pleats!). Red arrow shows the direction of the stitches on the fabric

NOTE: You will use your left hand to turn the fabric in counterclockwise direction as you sew around the corner.

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Together-4

LEFT: Finished stitch around bag corner. You might see some puckers, but this is ok as you can easily iron it out. What you shouldn’t see are pleats (where the fabric is stitched over itself).
RIGHT: Clip curves on [FRONT PIECE]. Repeat this for all the corners.

Fanny Pack Pattern Sewing Bag Together -5

Sew [BACK PIECE] to [ZIPPER/SIDE/BOTTOM PIECE] in the same way you just did.

Notes

Note 1: I recommend using a double zip for ease of use (speaking from personal experience!). However, one zip is fine as well.

Note 2: You will need to draw out the patterns [SIDE & BOTTOM PIECE] and [ZIPPER PIECE] on fabric. Exact measurements are listed in the PDF Sewing Pattern.

Note 3: At the corners, make a few shallow cuts on [ZIPPER/SIDE/BOTTOM PIECE]. This allows the fabric to “spread”so it’s easier to pin it to the corner of [FRONT PIECE].

Note 4: After sewing, you might see some puckers, but this is ok as you can easily iron it out. What you shouldn’t see are pleats (where the fabric is stitched over itself).

  2. I just finished making this for my older sister for Christmas (she’s on a fanny pack kick after discovering how much lighter they are than purses, haha), and it turned out so incredibly well!! I am definitely a beginning sewist, but your instructions were so clear and had so many helpful pictures, I was able to follow the pattern super easily. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern and tutorial (for free, no less!)–this project definitely boosted my confidence in my sewing skills, and I’m absolutely delighted with how well it worked. And my sister’s going to love it! So, thank you!!!

    1. Hi Kay,

      You are so welcome! I’m so happy to hear that you found the tutorial helpful! Thanks again 🙂

  3. Hi , Is there a video tutorial for your crossbody Fanny pack? I downloaded your pattern and instructions. I’m a beginner and I found your pattern to be easy to cut out. I am a visual person and I’m hoping you have a video to watch. Thank you for your kindness.

    Warmly,
    Linda

    1. Hi Linda,

      Unfortunately I do not have a video tutorial for the fanny pack. Sorry about that. However, feel free to reach out at [email protected] if you have encounter any questions as you sew. Thanks!

  4. This is such a great pattern! Your instructions are well written and easy to follow! I modified it slightly and made quilted pieces for mine and instead of making the strap I bought a cute coordinating strap. Now my girls are wanting me to make bags for them too. So thank you for sharing your talent with us! I cant wait to try another pattern.

    1. Hi Erin,

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the tutorial. And making quilted pieces for the bag sounds like it would make a beautiful bag, what a great idea! You are so very welcome!

  5. Hello Mindy,
    Thank you so so much for sharing this wonderful pattern.
    Could I ask if the measurement of 31.5″ is correct for the shoulder strap?
    I am currently at that step right now and when I cut the webbing, it seems too short to be a crossbody strap? But I have not finished the project yet so perhaps my judgment is incorrect?

    Many thanks!
