Using chalk, this shows the distance that I want to make two seams that will be the location of pocket for holding items when running. (Notice picture on right.)

Cut a slit halfway down the pocket area.  Insert items such as a key, tissue or chapstick to keep handy when exercising.  If you feel that the pocket opening may stretch over time, then secure the opening by using a needle to make knots on both ends of pocket opening. There you have it! Your own DIY Running/Walking Armband.
