Today I tackled a tool roll. Actually, this will be a tool roll for wood chisels......at the request of Sir Old Man. I had asked Deana to see if she could clean up the scrap bin at work for some heavy pieces for this project for her Dad. He wanted a custom size roll for the expensive wood chisels that he has acquired.
I brought back the fabrics she found for me to use......and today was figure out a design, see if it worked, and then make it day.
My first "test" out of thin shirting saved me a big disaster because it did not work. I made a visit to Pinterest for ideas. I refined my design, and headed to the workshop to check the size of the chisels again. Sure enough I needed to increase the dimensions and add in some fullness to the pockets. This first one still needs a side binding and the ties. Then I can move on to the second one to fit another set of chisels. By the time I get to the third one---gift for the Pesky Elf---I should have it figured out.
The doll quilts are rolling in.....I will be doing a big post on them in a couple of days. Mrs. Claus has been very busy. Every story that comes with them is just wonderful, and touches the heart.
OK, I am done for the day.....after I cook dinner and all that stuff. Happy stitching.
