The market wallet

The Wallet, or Market Wallet, is a rectangular bag with an opening in the center, made of cloth in various sizes and used as an all-purpose carrying item by civilians. It makes a great addition to a civilian kit. 


The Wallet, being of a long length and narrow width, can be carried in several ways. It can be put around the neck so that each side rests on one’s chest or twisted at the center and thrown over the shoulder. The twist will keep the contents from falling out. It's perfect for carrying supplies or use it for trips to the local market as it can carry a surprising amount and once loaded at both ends it hangs comfortable over your shoulder leaving your hands free. It's very simple to make and it looks great made up in some natural coloured linen. It's also a perfect sewing project for the beginner
