Well, I got married, had a baby, and moved out of the apartment. So no more roommate to borrow stuff from. We’re still friends obviously, but she can’t find her 2nd belt for me to borrow!
Option 1 – go to the runDisney expo and buy one for myself
Option 2 – make one!
If you know me, the only option is always ‘make one!’
WARNING – this was not easy! I found some directions online, but they really didn’t make any sense. So I just fumbled my way thru this. If you give it a try, be patient! 🙂
* fabric (I suggest cutting up an old race shirt). All I had lying around the house was an old polo shirt. Not the worlds greatest fabric, but I was too lazy to run to Joann.
* 8″ zipper
* a clippy thing (I cut this one off of a suitcase!
ALL FREE! (well, I had all this stuff lying around the house)
Sew the zipper on the 8″ square. My favorite zipper tutorial is from Dana Made It.
Step 11: Deal with the other end. Here’s where I was pretty stumped. I just made a tiny, super ghetto hem. “Pin and pray!” That’s always my theory. You can see how I folded each side to make it look small, but it will expand when you put stuff inside.
Step 12: Ghetto sew on the clips you ripped off some luggage and you’re done! (normally you’d want these pieces to be expandable. However, the elastic I had just slid right out of the clips, so I measured my waist and just sewed. As I lose some baby weight, I can undo it and sew it up again).
