The first armband worked well but I couldn’t stop wondering “what if I made a woven version?” Would it work better? Would it be annoying when I have to run holding a car tyre?
Frankly, everything is annoying when you choose to run holding a car tyre at 6am in the morning.

Those alternative fabric choices wouldn’t have worked and I might have been asked by the group to go join to the pilates class down the hallway instead.

- Stash fabric leftover from walking shorts I made last year for a Singapore trip
- a normal zip
- stick on and sew velcro that I had leftover from making Oz tags for my youngest nephew and niece.
The fabric is a linen poly blend and it’s dark and slubby. It washes easily.
|I store these running gadgets in this armband but keep both armband versions in my training bag.|
The guys at the gyms asked what the armband was for (a new toy), so there’s a bit of interest now. I sure hope those guys can sew :))
This armband works just as well my Hyundai Excel version of Melissa’s armband, so I have 2 versions. They both work and I can alternate using them when I train.
My average beats per minute (BPM) during training has gone up and that’s a good thing.
