In preparation for my trip to Olds next week, I’m kind of gathering all my supplies together so I can account for everything and pick up the things I still need. I had the idea a few weeks ago about making a pouch/cover for my hand carders. Carding cloths (the red things staple to the wood that has all the tines sticking out of it) are expensive and I want to protect them as much as possible. I found an old pair of jeans and decided to use the fabric – it’s durable and easily sewn. They took literally 10 minutes from beginning to end. I have yet to decide what kind of clasp/attachment I want to use over the top, by the handles to keep them together.
Now, I didn’t take measurements, I kind of eye-balled it, but if anyone wants them, it’ll just take me a minute to write them up. My hand cards are Ashford 108-point Fine cards, which are thicker than the student cards.
What do you think?
