Don't Tell

mirror image shot, don't worry it's a lefty bandolier
Oh my goodness.  This is what I've been secretly working on lately.  And I am now so in love with the idea of a bandolier.  Seriously, if Martha can bring back ponchos, I can so rock a bandolier.  I mean it, next time I'm hitting Disneyland, I'm so wearing a bandolier.  Can't you just picture it?  No more trying to figure out what to do with your bag on the rides that don't allow them.  Problem solved!  Bandolier. 
This one though, isn't a Mom bandolier.  It's part of my oldest guy's Christmas; he's six.  And a lefty, which caused me more stop and think moments than just about any other project.  No one wants a backwards bandolier.  It holds darts for his nerf gun.  Now he has a mobile stash for battles with Dad.  This is why I sew; what kid doesn't need a nerf bandolier.

What fun for your little guy. Perhaps you should make a Mom bandolier, in something appropriately girl-y.

I made one of these for my son once, but I had no idea they had such a cool name :).
This is a good reason to sew - so you can make those things your kids 'need' that you can't easily buy.

That is awesome! Need to make one for my DS. Did you use a tutorial for this or your own design?
