I love crafting
I also love crafting tools but I have quite of lot of them!
I tend to get a little OCD when it comes to my crafting tools, which can be a bit of a problem when I have so much of a varied kind of different tools! Be it X-actos, pens, calligraphy pens, erasers blah blah blah, they all need a their own place.
So, I did what I could with lunchboxes and a cutlery holder thingy (great for pens) but my sewing, knitting, crochet and jewellery tools needed to be separate (because I'm fussy like that!) and minus the potential stabbings I might receive if I'm not paying attention to what my hands are doing (probably from being distracted reading Craftster
). It's happened, my seam ripper had a taste for my flesh for a while.
So for my jewellery tools, I made this:
which opens into this:
I'll admit the stitching is crooked, but honestly, I've improved since then. I'll even give ya proof with my sewing/knitting/crochet case!
It's made from an old hoodie and a bit off an old skirt.
Inside, with my tools:
The pamphlet is from the website www.sewmamasew.com
and it's a handy guide to different types of hand stitching and how to do them. I downloaded and printed it from here:www.sewmamasew.com/media/blog/SMSstitchbook.pdf
Oh and for the record, I actually hate the colour pink and I only ever use that pink gel pen when it won't be seen. I'm consciously trying to wear this pen out because I can't throw away a pen until it's completely dry!
(And by the way, those pencils are my current knitting needles! I'm a little broke at the moment so I have to wait until my mam gives me back mine!)
And all closed with all of my tools inside:
I don't have any tutorials for either of these because I just made it up as I went along, but they're really easy to make!Once you figure out how to attach a zipper you're sorted!
Thanks for looking!
