When I started this project, I had a completely different idea in mind. This isn’t this first time I’ve switched ideas half way through a project, and I know it won’t be the last! I wanted something to hang on the wall next to my sewing and craft table, and I ended up making the handiest wall tool belt.
- Canvas with wood frame– mine is 8″x16″.
- Fabric – depends on your canvas size, I used a ½ yard.
- Glue gun & glue sticks
- Sewing machine and supplies
I’ve had this fabric for awhile and have been saving it for something; I just didn’t know what yet. I started by gluing fabric across and around the front of the canvas. I smoothed out the fabric and glued it down around the wood frame on the back.
As I started this project I wanted a simple, splash of color to counter the business of my craft table, and I liked how it turned out I just wanted it to DO more. It hangs to the right of craft table and right above a large, bulky tool box. I took the excess fabric and made pockets by sewing right sides together, turning it out and gluing and it to the back of the canvas frame. Mine holds a small hammer, scissors, pliers, needle nose pliers and some masking and duct tape. Since I’ve hang it up it’s collected a permanent marker, screw driver and some hair ties. Make sure it hangs it up through a stud.
