This past Sunday I got an urge - an irresistable urge to make me a tool belt. But not just any toolbelt, something that could hold almost everything that I need to make a doll or any sewing project that took my fancy.
It has one level of pockets for pencils and pens with enough space for every pencil I regularly use. The second tier of pockets holds larger tools liker scissors, haemostats, pliers etc.
Plus there is a patch pocket with a snap closure for tiny items like fabric erasers, thimbles, and pencil sharpeners and a felt needle catcher heart for pins and needles.
As I travel a lot to teach I also wanted this apron to double up as a tool wrap. Fold it up and wrap one of the ties around it and voila! Easy to store and transport.
