This book offers detailed, environmentally-sound instruction on the act no-one gets much help from in the trail guides.


7 Money Belt Pattern

Making your own money belt is easy. If you make this belt as suggested, the costs should be less than half that of a commercial belt and - provided you sew carefully - it will last 2-5 times as long.

By hand it will take you quite a bit longer (four hours or more) because stitching in confined places around the zip is tricky. This is a complete pattern and instructions suitable for beginners. More accomplished sewers can adapt the design to personalise it.
