Any gun becomes useless as soon as you run out of ammunition, so you need to keep some to hand. Keeping with the Shotfun theme, I decided to make a bandolier to hold party poppers - far more elegant than shoving them in my pockets
The two main materials for the bandolier are a wide fabric tape and a length of elastic.
I bought two metres of each from Kitewife's favourite knitting shop. The tape is of a similar texture to hessian, and the elastic is similar in feeling (apart from being stretchy) to paracord. The two came to less than £4.00.
Apart from that, you need basic sewing tools - needle, thread, scissors and a ruler or tape measure. You may need a thimble if your fabric ribbon is tough.
