Yes, I’m going to be completely stereotypical for this Father’s Day D.I.Y. only because this is something mine would actually use. No matter if you make this for dad or for yourself, it is very affordable. I came across this idea when I was searching for a tool roll store after store and kept coming out empty handed.
- Canvas Work Apron- The Home Depot $1.49
- Tape Measure
- Sewing Machine
- Basic Sewing Supplies
Don’t worry a beginner sewer can tackle this one with little to no experience. Figure out how many pouches to customize the roll to. Measure the widest part of each tool, mark off sections with a pencil. If you need the extra room, like I did, simply take a seam ripper to remove the middle seams that come on the apron. Once all the dimensions are sketched out start sewing. DONE
Tips from trial and error:
Note of caution; if the tools being used exceed the height of the apron brainstorm if it is worth adding extra material to the top. A normal tool roll ties are usually located in the middle of one side so they can be tied together to secure the tools. Simply cut off and resew the apron’s ties to the middle of one side to fix this issue.
