Welcome to the Fanny Pack Sew Along! Tina and Jessica look forward to sewing with you!
The Fanny Pack Along is scheduled for June 6 – July 1, 2022.
Participants will be able to choose their own pattern for this sew along. We have provided a list of patterns below. Each week, Tina and Jessica will share a prompt to keep you sewing along. Note that participants are welcome to work at their own pace – including finishing early or finishing after the sew along ends.
As always, we will end the sew along with a “fashion show” of sorts on Instagram, where participants are welcome to share their final fanny packs. Will you wear yours around your waist as party people of the 90s did or are you super on trend and will sling it over your shoulder?! We can’t wait to find out!
You are welcome to work at your own pace. We like to build in time for life to happen.
Week 1 - Gather materials (pattern, fabrics, and other supplies)
Week 2 - Cut fabric and interface fabric
Week 3 - Begin piecing
Week 4 - Finish piecing + fashion show!
On Friday, July 1st, we invite all #fannypackalong participants to show us your brand new fanny pack, shoulder bag, bum bag, etc. Post on Instgram on 7/1 using the #fannypackalong and #fannypackfashionshow hashtags to celebrate our accomplishments!
