Hello Readers. This may be a weird project. My daughter is headed to Europe soon. She needs some kind of money belt so she doesn't loose her money or ID. She is also concerned about pick pockets. She looked online at lots of different kinds of money belts and discovered we could probably make one for her. She wanted a stretchy belt that could hold different sized items.
I started with this very stretchy tank top. I cut off the bust portion and used the lower half.
I folded the band in thirds. (It is hard to see with this black fabric.) And stitched vertically at different points around the belt. This first/lower fold made the pockets and the fold over the top made the pockets enclosed on the top, all around the belt.
Here is another picture. You can see the top flap goes over the pocket so nothing will fall out. And hopefully it will be pick-pocket proof too.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself. Or your daughter.

The belt is worn low on the hips, under clothing.
