#mamavation Monday: DIY armband

So I don't normally talk about crafting and never talk about crafting for the sake of exercise but here goes.

So I went to Best Buy to buy the armband for my Galaxy S3. I done my research, saved my money. I was ready. They were out of them! The dude looked at me and said, well it's the first of the year and everyone has those resolutions to keep. Jackass!

So I came hope so defeated. No armband, no motivation and DH still not ready to join my work-outs. Then I thought to myself, why not make my own? I still have my iPhone 3 armband, just repurpose it, right? I got on YouTube and then wanted to kick my own ass. I found dozens of tutorials on making you own armband from a sock. It is so easy. You take a sock cut off the toe, double it then put your phone in it. That is it! I am using a Babyleg to be more fashionable :). So tip of the blog: make your own armband!

I also got my box of Beanitos! Such a kick ass way to start the week!

  1. Great idea to make an armband from a babyleg! I'm not sure my fat arm would fit into one, but I might try it.

  2. Oh I love this idea....I would have never thought about using a sock to do this!
