a homemade chalk bag

Based on this tutorial on how to make a chalk bag I've made my own.

I started out with a tank top that was too short and a sweater that I felted in the wash.

Here's the bag closed. I bought the elastic and cord stop from Joann's Fabrics.

I tried using metal eyelets as indicated in the tutorial, but I chose fabric that was too thin and they didn't grip well. I sewed around the holes so they would keep their shape.

I took the belt from my old chalk bag and threaded it through loops made from the tank top straps.

I can't wait to go climbing tomorrow!
