Kid’s Tool Belt

My 3 year old son has recently been playing a lot with his toy tools. Apparently, carrying them in his tool box was too difficult so he started just stuffing them down his shorts and letting the elastic hold them up. He would take two steps, and the tools would hit the floor with a loud bang. I decided to remedy this situation by making him his very own kid’s tool belt.

To make for a special child in your life, cut one 13″ x 4 1/4″ piece of canvas (or any fabric you choose) for the base, one 7 3/4″ xย  3 1/4″ piece for the pocket, two 14″ x 1 1/2 ” pieces for the ties, and two 3 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ pieces for the tool loops.

Then, fold and sew the tie and loop pieces to make straps.

1. Using a clothes iron, press in half.

2. Unfold. Then, fold and iron edges to the center crease line.

3. Fold and press in half again.

4. Sew along the edges.

Take your base section, fold and pin sides under to hide raw edges. Tuck your tie pieces in and sew around the rectangle.

To hide rough edges, fold and sew around your pocket portion.

Place the pocket on top of the base and attach leaving the top side open.

To attach the tool loops sew one edge down. Then loop it around to make a circle.
