Although I managed to add a pocket into my exercise pants so I can carry my phone, I need an extra pocket at the moment to have quick access to the poo bags!
While looking for ideas to print on some t- shirts (next blog post for that one!) I came across a new craft blog " the sewing rabbit" ( how could I resist that title!) and found a free pattern for a "running belt" to carry stuff when exercising. I had a couple of scraps of lycra, so had a play around with some ideas.
This one has a phone pocket at the front, and zip pocket at the back. Probably should have made it a little bit smaller/ tighter as the lycra stretches so much with the weight of the phone. Can be worn over or under t shirt - not sure if I like it on top or not. But it fits ok, fairly snug, not bulky like a bum bag, just big enough for phone, keys, a couple of tissues, and of course the doggy poo bags! Not bad for a $2 scrap of lycra, and made 3 in about an hour (took a while working how best way to sew & pocket placement; not happy with the zip in the prototype but this one worked out much neater!). Will play around with pattern a bit more I think, but will need another lycra off cut first.
