Now everything has a place....

Finally, - instead of having to dig around in my scrap box to find my sewing tools, I've made a 'Sewing Tool Wrap' to keep all my tools in one place. 

I had been thinking about a way to keep all my tools to hand for a while and finally worked out exactly what I was going to do.

A nice padded quilty soft ‘jacket’ –

Pockets wide and deep enough to hold all the essentials - scissors, rotary cutter, ruler, pencils, notebook etc. 

And little pockets to hold little things – tape measure, chalk…

Some cute little button detail on the strap - which secures on the back with Velcro, and some lovely hot pink bias binding. 

I am very pleased to say that it actually turned out exactly as I imagined – if not slightly better J   I’m really happy with how the quilting turned out (I quilted straight lines down random stripes on the external fabric) and I think the binding gives it a really professional looking finish. 

How do you store your tools?
