The Explorer Fanny Pack is an oval-shaped, single-pocket bag with a front zipper opening designed to be worn around the waist or hips for a hands-free and comfortable way to carry your essentials. Flanges on either side of the bag provide extra support in holding the bag tight to the body without the webbing straps digging into the wearer’s sides. The bag is unlined.
The Explorer Fanny Pack is the perfect size for your phone, wallet, and keys, plus a few small items. This simple design lends itself well to colorblocking, decorative topstitching, patches or applique.
Medium to heavy weight wovens with no stretch, such as cordura, cotton canvas, cotton duck, waxed canvas, or upholstery fabrics. Thinner fabrics, such as quilting cottons, can be used in conjunction with fusible interfacing to add structure.
7” (17.8 cm) zipper
1” wide webbing
1” side release buckle and slider
This PDF pattern is designed to be printed at home. Your download will contain 3 files:
A print-at-home file sized for letter or A4 paper
A copyshop file sized for Tabloid paper (11” x 17”)
Comprehensive step-by-step illustrated instruction booklet (in both imperial and metric measurements)
When printing either of the pattern files, be sure to print at actual size (100%) or select “do not scale” on your print screen. Use the 2” (5 cm) test square to check that your file has printed at the correct size. Scaling the pattern up or down from its intended size may result in the pattern pieces not fitting together properly.
