Hope you all are doing well. This is Nithiya from the Itsy Bitsy Design Team. Today I will show you how I made a No-sew tool roll organizer with silicon liquid glue and used Little Birdie fabric paints to add beauty to it. I’m sure all crafters will be having some tools that they use frequently in their crafts. This no-sew tool roll can be used for organizing colour pencils, sketches, brushes, etc., and is a cool to carry when we travel.
For making this, I used a poly cotton and silk cotton fabric. It is advisable to use cotton based fabrics so that you will have a good control over them while glueing.
#1 – First I gathered all my tools and arranged them on a poly cotton fabric to know the approximate measurement of the tool bed.
#2 – Then I took a silk cotton fabric and cut them a little bigger than the poly cotton fabric with length and breadth measuring 2 cm more than the poly cotton for folding them later.
#3 – I used fabric Deco Magic glue and decoupaged one side of the poly cotton cloth with decoupage napkin Butterfly Dream.
#4 – I folded the edges and sealed it with silicon glue. I can sew the same but wanted to try a no sew fabric tool roll and to my surprise it really worked. The amazing silicon glue did the magic.
#5 – The inner side of the tool roll appears as shown in the below picture. I then made a 2 inch width band with a design cloth I had at home that matched with the silk cotton cloth. I started making holders of exact dimensions by placing the tools in position and glueing.
#6 – I made tight grip holders by placing the tools in position as shown below and glued them with silicon glue.
#7 – In the end I made a big pocket to keep some additional tools whenever necessary and I adhered a baby ribbon on one end with the silicon glue for tying the roll.
#8 – I highlighted the outer side of the roll with glitter fabric paint Lime Glint and Cherry Sparkle since it had more of green and pink as shown. I let them dry and finished it with another coat of Deco Magic fabric glue.

Similar technique can be used for making invitation/postcard wall hanging, face mask, mobile phone holder for recharging etc.
