Introduction: Gart-it

I decided that I wanted to make another product, and this is what I made out of the time I actually bummed around the house, and when I drive alone going home. Through those time spans I actually made an idea out of the box, and through pressure of creativity. If ever there is such a thing. I believe in spur of the moment ideas, and this is one of them.

My idea is to make lives easier for those who do not like carrying bags and extra stuff. If they think those things are a hassle to them, then they should consider this alternative product hip for teenagers, and people who are always on the go.
I call this product, Go Gart!

This product is an arm strap made of garter and Velcro to hold essential things such as writing paraphernalia’s, and flash drives.
This is very cheap, and is designed for teenagers, and it was made colorful to have a lighter feeling to it.

Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials

1 meter of 1 inch width garter (any color)
Velcro
Thread and Needle
Sequins
Scissors
Tape
Other art materials

Step 2: Step 1

Measure the garter in the arm. Make sure there is allowance, for the Velcro. Cut the garter, and the Velcro at the desired length.

Attach the Velcro by sewing it at the sides. Make sure that the color of the thread is the same color as the garter used.

Step 3: Step 3

Cut 1 inch from the garter, and roll it to make the garter for the pen holder. Make 2 pcs. And 2 inches for the USB holder. See attached photo.

Step 4: Step 3 - 2

Cut 1 inch from the garter, and roll it to make the garter for the pen holder. Make 2 pcs. And 2 inches for the USB holder. See attached photo.

Step 5: Step 4

Sew the rolled garter to the longer garter.

Step 6: Step 4-2

same as step 4

Step 7: Step 5

Place sequins, or other artsy designs. After, you can already place all the pens and flash drive.

Making products from spontaneous ideas is ok, but this product looks somewhat under-designed. The first problem I have with it is that while you say that you wanted to create a lighter feeling, the strap is black, and this makes it look rather heavy and bulky.

it just looks heavy really, but it is light. it is made of garter, so it is very comfortable. once it's in your arm you would not even feel it's there. =) thanks for the comment =)

"and it was made colorful to have a lighter feeling to it." i know that it isn't heavy, because I know the approximate weight of fabric, I'm wearing some right now. The above quote is what you said with regards to your design. My point is that black is not colorful, and therefore your arm band does not "have a light feeling to it." Nothing to do with the physical weight of it, just your choice of materials. Why not try white, that way the colors of the sequins will stand out more, and I think it would appeal more to teenage girls as well.

See thewoodcarver's comment, it looks like a hunting/military accessory.
