Pattern Description:

This apron is designed for stall-holders at craft markets and fetes, to carry money and other necessities. It's a tried and tested design, which is functional, secure and easy to make.

The two-tone apron can be made in any light cotton fabric, as decoratively or discreet as you like.

The design includes two hidden zipper pockets to hold small and large-value notes separately, three compartment pockets across the front and an optional "easy access" side pocket to hold non-valuable necessities (sweets and snacks, pens etc). The straps can be made extra-long to tie at the front (beneath the apron) for added security.
