Boho Chic Belt with Secret Pocket
From the Blogger: "In case you feel lazy, or you are going somewhere where a purse is a hassle to carry, this version of boho chic belt has a pocket large enough for a thin wallet or your mobile phone. Key Features of the Boho Chic Belt: Secret pocket at the back, easy to make, excellent alternative to a purse, casual yet elegant, fashionable yet practical.
