The second gift I made this year wasn't actually a planned one (normally I have "the list" that I go by religiously). My husband asked me if I could make him a replacement tool roll for one that was falling apart on him. I said sure and pounded out this tool roll for him.
I used a double layer of duck fabric for the entire project and used double folded bias tape for the edges. Once I actually figured out how to get the slanting pockets to line up right (measure twice, sew once was a good lesson I should have known from the beginning), it all came together pretty fast. I then took some more bias tape, sewed down the length of it to make a tie for the roll and wrote the size of the wrenches to go in the pockets on the tool roll with a sharpie.
The husband loved it and got it early because he asked ;).
Total Time to Make Gift: Two hours (which would have gone faster if I hadn't ripped out my stitches on the openings about four times). Total Cost of Materials: I've had the duck fabric for years (got it at a used store) and I had the bias tape (get it at the used stores when I find it for .10). So, total cost out of pocket was nothing, but I guess we can include the .10 bias tape.
