The famous fanny pack or belt purse used in the 80-90’s, are back. It consists of a bag tied around the waist or hips with a belt or chain. This type of bag is ideal for traveling comfortable and safe, also for biking, for a nice long walk or for a good festival or concert … This complement has gone from being a retro and outdated piece that only tourists used to be a very chic and cool purse that can complete your best look this spring and summer.

In this DIY tutorial I will show you how easy it is to make a DIY Belt purse using a bag or purse from Grandma’s closet or a second hand purse to make this complement with a cool and vintage look …

3. Punch a hole in the bag to sew the strips. (If you don’t have a punch and don’t want to sew, you can do this steps with glue… But I recommend that you sew because it will be more resistant and hold better)
