How to Sew a Waist Pouch/Belt for Jogging – Free Tutorial

How to Sew a Running Waist Pouch or Belt

The Crafting Chicks’ Nikkala shows us how she created a running pouch that is worn as a belt around the waist with this free sewing tutorial.  Nikkala uses spandex due to its exceptional elasticity and comfort experienced while wearing and running. “The stretch of the spandex allows the belt to fit securely around the waist, and holds the contents close to your body to prevent bouncing.” Spandex is said to be stronger and more durable than natural rubber. Lycra fabric is also an excellent choice for this sporty waist pouch.
