Gracie's Tool Belt

Ever since Robert let Gracie "help" with some of his projects and I gave her some small tools in her Christmas stocking, Gracie has been begging me to make her a tool belt.  I finally found a great tutorial online and made the time to make her one.

I made the tool belt like the one at One {hip} Mom, with a couple of changes:  I put red piping at the top of the pockets and the ties.  I also added three glitter buttons for decoration.

If I could do anything differently, I would put elastic in the hammer loop as it's rather big.  I would also sew the buttons on the pockets before sewing the pockets onto the main part of the tool belt.  That way I could've placed them at random places instead of just at the top.  I forgot to fold the ends of the ties, so I had to cut the ends with my pinking shears (zig-zag scissors).  I think they would've been too thick for my machine to sew anyway.

All in all I'm very happy with how it turned out!  Gracie is happy with it, and that's the important thing!  She immediately wanted to go out and "fix" her bike.
