My father's birthday is Sunday, and as usual, I had no idea what to give him. He has everything he needs, and buys everything he wants
. He's an electrician who works ALL the time, and doesn't really have any hobbies or collections. He spends any free time doing things for his family. So....anyway, I finally had the idea of a sort of 'tool wallet' for his smaller, electrical tools that always seem to get lost in the larger toolboxes. I sketched out what I wanted and started cutting. Here's what I came up with:
Here it is open. I just put a few of the tools lying around my craft room in to show how it's supposed to work.
One side has closing pockets for nuts, bolts, wire thingies etc.
The other side has elastic sections for pliers, screwdrivers, etc.
Depending on what he puts in there, it can be folded closed, like this:
or rolled closed, like this:
I would have used more exciting fabrics but he's very old school
. Plus, it needs to be very durable. I hope he likes it.
