Intro: Bandanna Pocket - 2 Styles
Don't you hate it when you wear jeans but the pocket is too small for your phone or even worse, they have those useless "fake pockets"? This Instructable will teach you how to make a pocket out of a piece of fabric such as a bandanna to wear on your pants.
Step 1: You Will Need:
• Bandanna (or other ~1 sq ft piece of fabric) • Pants with belt loops, such as jeans • Whatever you want to put in your pocket, like a phone or iPod
Step 2: Triangle Style
Lay the bandanna out flat and place your items right in the middle. For the rectangle style, jump to step 10.
Step 3: Fold
Fold one corner of the bandanna over your items.
Step 4: Roll
Roll the bandanna as if you were making it a headband. Grab hold of your stuff (which should be in the center of the longest side of the triangle) and roll it towards the open, right-angled corner.
Step 5: Insert
Insert one end of the rolled-up bandanna into a belt loop on your pants. I suggest one of the ones on the very left or right.
Step 6: Other Side
Insert the other side into the next belt loop forwards and pull it tight.
Step 7: Unroll
Find the other corners of the bandanna and pull them out and towards the front. This should create a downwards-pointing triangle as shown.
Step 8: Tie
Double knot the ends that went through the belt loops to secure the pocket to your pants. Tuck the loose ends behind if you don't want them hanging out.
Step 9: Finished!
Lift up the flap to pull out your stuff.
Step 10: Rectangle Style
Lay the bandanna out flat. Imagine a line running diagonally across it.
Step 11: Fold
Fold one corner of the bandanna slightly over the center line.
Step 12: Fold and Place
Repeat with the opposite corner and place your items in the center.
Step 13: Fold Again
Fold the entire thing in half hotdog style.
Step 14: Insert
Insert one end of the folded bandanna into a belt loop. I recommend the one on the very right or left of your pants.
Step 15: Other Side
Insert the other side into the next belt loop forward and pull it tight.
Step 16: Tie
Tie the loose ends at the front of your pocket.
Step 17: Finished!
You can now pull your items out of your pocket.
