Materials and Supplies:
..1/2 yard heavy weight fabric (Duck Cloth)
..1 package extra wide double fold bias tape
..Thread to match bias tape and fabric
Step 1 - Cutting Out the Pattern:
..Use the "How to enlarge a pattern" instructions below to enlarge the pattern to full size.
Step 2 - Bias Taping the Edges:
..Apply bias tape to the 2 straight edges. Open up the bias tape and line the edge up with the raw edge of the inside fabric. Stitch in the first fold. Roll the tape over the raw edge and topstitch 1/8" from edge. See first diagram.
..Fold bottom half of fabric piece up on line, and apply bias tape to the outside edges in the same manner. Tuck the ends under as shown in the 3rd diagram.
Step 3 - Make the Tool Pockets:
..With a sliver of soap or marking pen, mark lines on the folded up edge the following distances (in inches) apart:
1 3/4 - 1 1/2 - 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 - 1 3/4 - 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 - 2 3/4
..Stitch on these lines, giving them an extra backstitch for reinforcement on the bias taped end.
Step 4 - Finish the Wrench Case:
..Make ties for the case by stitching together the unfolded edge of the left over bias tape piece.
..Tie a knot on the two ends.
..Find the center of your strip and line it up with the center of the middle of the longer side edge.
..Stitch an X directly over the center where the case and bias strip match up.
