Who Says A Tool Belt Can't Be Cute!?!

The Cranky King & Prince Logan are strapping on our tool belts, rolling our sleeves up, getting paint~ splattered & working hard  to help those in need through the REACH WORKCAMP. This will be Logan's 3rd REACH trip, but it will the Queen's first! Our church, Sylacauga FUMC, will be traveling to Clinton, Tennessee (a small town just north of Knoxville) to help those folks less fortunate re-build &/or renovate their homes.  Check out the website above for details on the REACH Ministries.
So the Cranky Queen felt that she would need a tool belt or at least an apron to put her hammer, tape measure, & other cool tools in...I used a pants leg from a pair of cut~off overalls (yes, I am wearing my overalls one day to the work site) for the base; then I had some cuttings from an old feed sack (pocket); ticking fabric that I found discarded on the side of the road (apron strings); & "gussied it up" with a gathered denim flower and bow made with an old button and the seam of the feed sack!

The "cuteness" is in the details of the floret & button ribbon!

Now that my tool belt/work apron is made....The Cranky Queen & Prince Logan are packed & ready to go!  I pray we will help change lives during our week in Tennessee AND our lives will be changed too...



  1. That is totally adorable. I am going to repurpose a pair of jeans for this. I love it.

  2. Your tool belt is incredibly cute! I think that we have a lot in common. I have been going through some of your posts and truly am getting inspired. At the moment I have been stuck on going through a bag of old jeans and re-purposing them into useable and decorative items. I am your newest follower, and would love to have you follow me too. In fact I would consider it an honor. Hope to see you, and have a marvelous 4th of July, Connie :)

  3. Hi Tiffany, I am tickled pink that you came visiting and over-the-moon that you decided to follow me. I am looking very forward to sharing ideas and to following your lovely blog. Have a great day, Connie :)
