Before you know it, you will be moving on to zipper pouches to hold that ever growing set of Allen keys. Then double zipper, then triple zipper...

It's a worrying possibility.
There's yards of that old canvas left.  :fabric:   -<

It's great but just one criticism observation - on your next project, try to incorporate the eyelets in your fastening method  :P

Great idea Mick, not that I'd let him loose on my machines but I showed it to my DH and have spent the following 10mins listening to him trying to tell me what it is before I could shut him up and explain I knew and that a bloke made it  :S

Stop giving me ideas. I can get into enough trouble on my own.

I didn't need another spanner roll. But now I do need one with the eyelets in it.

Thanks.
Really... ><

Mansplaining is a real thing.

Not that I would ever dare do it.

Not around here, anyway...

Nice one, especially precision guesswork!  Just posted one of my older projects in House Beautiful, since I didn't know where else it would fit.  Managed to get one upside down, but it will give you an idea of it.  Background is a placemat, for scale. They do go back in their places too.

Well done! What a great idea! I have something similar for my crochet hooks. Very useful!
