Tool Roll: Lotta Jansdotter Pattern, Laurie Smith Fabric
There's a book out there by Lotta Jansdotter that I really enjoyed reading. She's scandinavian and all her designs are really simple, really clean, and put graphic prints to work. She does design her own line of fabric, but I never find it in stores. I did sew her tool roll out of a Laurie Smith decorator fabric -- shown here -- called Laurie's Leaves.
I modified the pattern to use less twill tape -- I mean enough is a enough, even if your name is LOTTA -- and I turned the seams in (because I wasn't using tape) so I lost about 1/2 inch in size all the way around. But, I liked the result and think it holds tools of all sorts quite well.
