DIY Jean Pocket Tool Belt

Feb 12, 2013

Where did the scissors go? Where is my pencil hiding? Tools go missing lots. It’s what they do. Tool belts are perfect to keep things organized and close at hand, but some of them are bulky, expensive and not intended for what you need. That’s why making your own is perfect!

Use up-cycled jeans to make a tool belt for your needs. It can be used as an apron in the kitchen or for your crafting tools. Plus, it's super cute! Here’s how to do it!

Supplies:

  • Old pair of jeans
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread

Directions

  1. Cut off the legs of the jeans like you would to make a pair of denim shorts.
  2. Cut along the seams of the legs and cut off the front part of the shorts leaving the waistband intact. Go ahead and cut off the front pockets, the back pockets will be on your front so you won’t need these front pockets on your back.
  3. Patch any holes in the back pockets.
  4. If you need a loop for a hammer, trim a piece of seam from the legs you cut off and sew it on the side of the belt for a hammer holder.

Send Letters to President Obama and Congress : 27,226  Letters Sent So Far   It’s an unprecedented move by an American president, and you should be outraged. President Obama has sided with the terrorists — and against our friend and ally, Israel. In an effort to jump-start peace talks in the Middle East, President Obama has made the choice to side with the Palestinian Authority (PA). In a stinging rebuke of the Israeli people, he called Israel a force of ############ and demanded that the nation revert to the 1967 borders — a move that would divide Jerusalem. By turning against Israel ... and backing the PA ... President Obama is throwing his support to Hamas, a terrorist organization that vows to eliminate Israel. This all-out assault on Israel is not a pathway to peace — it's an unacceptable political play against our most important and trusted Middle East ally. The ACLJ is mobilizing its resources, both in America and in Jerusalem, mounting a legal and legislative effort to protect Israel. Stand with us now in support of the nation of Israel and in opposition to President Obama's troubling new pro-terrorist policy against them by simply googling aclj petition for lsrael and signing the petition, its the first result snd in case you get  onfused, shares the same title as this thread. Thank you.
