Picture of Make a Party Popper Bandolier, the Essential Shotfun Accessory.
What could be cooler than owning a Double Barrel Shotfun? Being fully equipped to use it, that's what. 

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

Step 1: Materials and tools

Picture of Materials and tools
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.

what has to be done to get 10k views in three days? enlighten me please
....
This really is an awesome project! That combined with the fact it was in the June 2nd newsletter (which goes out to over a million people!!!) really draws in lots and lots of views on one day :D

Ah, the newsletter!

I forgot about that.

You know, I don't really know, and if you look at my full list of projects, so many on only a couple of thousand views after months or years, you see that's true.

Sometimes, though, you get lucky, and a project catches the imagination of the public - I don't know why, but over 7k of those views were in the last 24 hours.

I keep thinking of that movie scene where the guy pulls all the pins on his grenade bandolier and then tosses it..I don't think that would end well with these part poppers (maybe a really long string?)

What other accessories do you have planned? Maybe a hip/leg holster?
Kiteman (author)  mikeasaurus2 years ago
I hadn't planned any more. It's a bit long for a holster, isn't it?

Unless, maybe, something on my back...?
