    We made these in quilting last week, great gift idea for anybody, you can fill it with appropriate tools of trade! Only took 2 - 1/2 yrds contrasting fabric. This was the teachers sample.

    My FCE club will be making some to sell this fall. Can't wait to see the pattern on how to do them.

    It is a McCall's or Simplicity pattern, just can't remember which one. I have it and hope to make some for Christmas gifts.

    Found a link to the pattern number:
    http://www.simplicity.com/p-4469-craft.aspx

    Hancock Fabrics or Hobby Lobby usually run patterns on sale for a couple of dollars.

    I think that I'd put at least one small plastic tube in a pocket for that seam ripper. I wouldn't take much time to slice my hand on it reaching for something else.
    That sure is a pretty and very practical gift, and I'd like to make one for me. I also have far too many coffee mugs, some of which are man sized.

    What about a tiny lazy susan, with velcro glued to it and velcro sewed to the mug holder? Some crafty lady could make them. Just use a router to make a deep circle in it, then fill it with steel marbles and put a bottom on it with small lifters less high than the marbles. Paint first.

    Thanks SherriB for providing the pattern site, as I didn't have it, our teacher just provided the pattern and directions. DonnaB

    You can get seam rippers with covers. That's how I keep from injuring myself :lol:

    I vowed never to make anything but quilts as my attempts at all else were met with failure. However, this is so cute and looks easy enough... I am going to attempt. thanks for the idea and those who provided links
