This stretchy running belt is perfect to corral keys, a music player, or a cell phone while walking, running or gardening. I believe I would stitch a vertical line across the belt on either side of the zipper so things would not tend to move around yet keep the belts stretchy qualities.

For all the runners out there this is a great way to carry your phone and keys with you without having to worry about what to do with them or worry about losing them. So simple and fast to make and uses very little fabric. What a great idea. You can even carry some mace in just in case you need it. This will make a great gift for a runner or you can even use it for a quick trip to the store when you do not want to carry your purse or wallet. Make it to look classy and wear to a club or dinner so you do not have to worry about keeping tabs on your things. Very easy to understand tutorial.
