Make a Mini Toolbelt

Erin (LilyBee) at Wee Baby Stuff made this adorable mini toolbelt for her little guy, including safe foam versions of tools! How cute is that? I love it when I come across clever crafts for boys because I have two little guys myself (and it seems like more crafting online is done for girls--maybe it just seems that way to me because I'm jealous of all the moms who get to make cute skirts for their daughters!). My 3 year-old son just said "maybe you can make a little tool belt for ME!" Now if you're not a parent, don't click away just yet! Erin takes us through all the steps of making the belt including constructing roomy pockets out of a reusable grocery bag. Such a great idea, and it would work for toolbelts for anyone. Craft toolbelt, ladies? I need a holster for my glue gun! [click here for full project instructions]

Project Estimate:

  • A re-usable shopping bag, $1 or on hand
  • A kid-sized belt, $1 or on hand
  • A plastic key chainy thing, on hand (optional)
  • Tools are made from one piece of foam floor tile, $1

Total: $1 and up

    I can’t get the tutorial to load. Is it just my computer?
