This is the last post with photos of the secret crafting which kept me busy for Christmas 2018. And this time, it’s a sewing project.
For the husband. He had asked for various tools (for metal engraving, wood chequering etc) so family clubbed together to buy the various tools, hammer, book etc . . . plenty of things to keep him happy. Tools in this photo are the metal engraving ones. I was rather worried, when I saw the sharp ends on these, and decided to make a) a little fabric tray to keep them all together on his work bench. And b) a tool roll, so that the husband has somewhere to keep them all.
I chose a very manly William Morris print for the outer fabric.
and fabric from the same collection for the inside. Pockets are made with leather and I added a felt flap, so that tools won’t slip out.
I’m not sure whether leather pockets was such a good idea . . . time will tell if it stands up to the pointy ends. If not, I’ll make a second one, using denim which will probably be more hard-wearing.
