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.

Pope, in the third Epistle (or chapter, if you will,) argues that man is no more entitled to anything than anything else."I feel like C. S. Lewis wrote this.  Truly, I'm flattered. :O "AlphaT" wrote:But in all seriousness, I feel like I've heard something like this recently. It was about man's relationship to himself under methodological naturalism...which is quite like what you're talking about. In fact, I think it had something to do with Alexander Pope. Anyway, it's true that man is no more entitled to anything than anything else...if one of three conditions are not met: 1. Inherent entitlement2. Achieved entitlement3. Represenative entitlementI don't think there are any good arguments for the first two, but as representatives of the Creator on Earth, we have a right to a certain dominion. This, however, also comes with our own responsibility to the Earth.  I think you're right, I arrived at the same conclusion. Pope seems to be disregarding man's ordained role as manager of earth, as recorded in Genesis. Although, perhaps one could draw from his argument that we tend to abuse our privileged position. Taking more than we ought from the environment in a destructive manner, and offering little in return. We then justify our tyranny by proclaiming our representative entitlement to earth's resources, not knowing how good managers ought to perform. It's an interesting read, whatever you take from it.

The good news is that I got a driver's license out of the deal (: Tuesday at the latest.  Congrats on the license! How hard is the driving test in your state? In FL you have to have to get at least a 90% to pass. (Of course I got it on my first try. :D) And take your time. I spend little time online these days so a longer wait won't bother me much.
