Mums do have their uses

J has wanted a tool pouch for his bike for some time and at regular intervals, he's has stuck his cycling book under my nose and has said, you can make me one of these.  I decided yesterday was the day to get it done.


It was simple to do.  I bought some black canvas fabric and hemmed a rectangle.  I folded up the bottom and stitched compartments to fit the tools.  Apparently, these are D's tools, so I may have to stitch some more lines in.  I bought some tape and fasteners and made a strap to hold it all together.  The strap has been stitched to the pouch so it won't be going astray.


This is the finished article.  I'm now waiting for D to ask for one.
