Hidden Pocket Pants Project (HPPP): Completed

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I dislike wearing a money belt. I understand and respect their importance in keeping your documents safely nested near your crotch, but they're uncomfortable. Most trips I end up wearing it for a week or two before the nasty combination of laziness and a belt rash kicks into high gear and I end up scrapping the pouch in favor of nervously traveling around with one hand in my pocket at all times.

But, as a few of you might remember, I ran across a nifty little tutorial on sewing a hidden pocket into your pants. When I saw it, I knew had to try it out... so that's exactly what I did this past week. With the help of my lovely girlfriend (who did 100% of the sewing), I now have two pairs of pants with a built-in secret pocket. It's every little boy's dream.

We used a stretchy, breathable material and sewed it on the inside of the pocket. Check out the gallery below. It's definitely not the prettiest thing in the world, but who's going to be looking down my pants anyway, right?
