I've been sewing a lot recently.. Not got around to posting most of it, but I absolutely had to share the tobacco wrap I made to keep all my rolling tobacco stuff in one place. I was getting pretty peed off with my previous method of storage, that being the chuck it into the abyss that is my handbag method. Very frustrating.

So.. own design, didn't so much plan it as had a vague idea of how big I wanted it, the whole thing changed as I went along.





Of course, I just HAD to use the sexy cowboy fabric I had knocking around from making a friend's birthday pressie last year (year before?). I could seriously find a use for a whole bolt of this fabric Cheesy

For the inside, I chose polkadots, because I'm totally obsessed.





It's about the size of a standard size packet of tobacco, but holds about 1/3-1/2 a pack. The little zippy pouch fits perfectly and keeps the baccy from getting everywhere (which it always did when I was keeping it in the packets it came in.

I'm rather chuffed with the paper holder pouch.. I used my buttonhole setting to create a mouth on it, so you can pull out a paper without having to fiddle with the little cardboard pockets.

Filters just go in the pouch, which is closed with a cute button on some decorative (and functional) elastic.

Not that I am advocating smoking, but with the price of regular cigarettes, a lot of people are doing their own!

What a great idea and it would be a nice gift for friends and family who smoke and roll their own!

Love the cute fabric and how you put a lot of thought into the function of the piece!  You little fold out pocket is such a nice detail!

I had to click this rocks, because this is probably one of the most genius things I've seen on here yet.  Seriously, crank those babies out and sell them.  Wow.  I *almost* wish I still smoked.  Perfect use of fabric both inside and out, and just....wow.

Best. Comment. Ever. *blush* Thank you so much!!

I was kind of thinking about making a standard pattern to make and sell.. but it'd take some playing around with, I think. I made so many mistakes with this one! I might just have to make them for all my smoker friends and call it product testing Tongue

I agree!  Leave it to a member of the crafting community to come up with a pretty and practical item!  I am already plotting to make one for a dear friend of mine who is contantly digging around her purse at the worst possible times--it helps to make it sexy with a great fabric!  You are a dear to share your project!

Let me know if you want any more details on what I did Smiley Though I'm sure you'll work out a brilliant and unique way to do it too Grin

My partner buys leather ones of these and loses them all the time, and they are so expensive to replace.
I love that you made one from fabric, your so clever!

Smiley Before I made this I'd been looking for a fabric one for myself, but all I could find were leather ones, no good at all for me, being vegan! This was the cheapest project ever, since I only used about an A4 sized piece of each fabric, and it was just stuff I had in my stash already (so were the poppers, elastic and button Smiley )

I don't smoke anymore, but in college when I still did I rolled my own and this would've been the coolest thing to have! The sexy cowboy makes it even more fantastic. Kudos!
