I've been wanting a brand new chalk bag for climbing. But, being the budget minded, crafty person I am, I decided there was no sense in spending money on one when I can make one for free! So, that's just what I did.
I went through my fabric stash and found some leftovers that I loved. I also went through my collection of webbing, belts, buckles and other doodads that I've saved from old worn out purses, bags, backpacks, etc. and found the other supplies I needed.
I finally got started on it this morning after working on some ideas in my head for a couple of weeks. I went with some of my original ideas but figured stuff out along the way. Here's the result...
I love how it turned out and I'm so excited to use it!
The finished size is 5" across and 7 1/2" tall.
For anyone who doesn't rock climb and may be wondering....chalk is used to keep hands from being sweaty and slippery. Chalk is carried in the bag and the bag is clipped to the harness so it's easily accessible whenever it's needed.
Instead of spending $25 or more on a chalk bag I now have one for free. And, it's unique...no one else in the world will have one exactly like it. I'm so excited! Yay for sewing success, recycling, and using stuff in the stash! :-D
