The first was practically demanded ... "If I take the kids for a play in the garden, will you make me that pliers wrap I've been asking for ... for like a year?"
Um ... OK!
Being a bit of a (self-confessed) tomboy, I took to this little project like a duck to
The Ikea denim tablecloth that I picked up recently came in handy for this little project.
It was nice and sturdy and for the outer and pocket fabrics. Plus I thought it would wear well with the dirt that this wrap will inevitably be covered in!
For a pop of colour, and as an ode to his heritage, I used a Spotlight Union Jack drill cotton to line the warp and make the ties.
The next little project was a surprise for his birthday ...
My husband is in I.T and where ever he goes a big jumble of cables go with him (think: laptop charger, earphones, phone charger, tablet charger, hard drives ... I won't bore you with the entire list!)
He does a bit of travelling with his work from time to time so I made him a little pouch (my first ever!!!!) to pop all of these cables in.

The Union Jack fabric is another drill cotton from Spotlight and the lining fabric is left-over from a little project I've finished for the up-and-coming Make Modern Magazine ... I'm really excited to have my FIRST EVER quilt pattern published in Make Modern's FIRST EVER issue!! September the FIRST is the date to remember!
I'll be linking up with TGIFF and Finish it Up Friday this week.
Happy Friday everyone!
