this one could be a winner

Handmade guy gift FTW. Travel power cord/charger rollup made from a suit pant leg.

Tutorial here.

If you’re a handcrafter, you know how hard it is to make gifts for guys. Knitted beanie, sure. Pyjama pants, OK. A bathrobe? Maybe. And then what?

I haven’t received any actual male feedback on this one yet, but I’m thinking it could be a hit. At least, with guys who travel, and like electronics. Which, admittedly, is probably a subset of the guys you know.

But hey, it’s something! And I got the (Italian wool) pants from the thrift store dollar rack, so it’s already a win as far as I am concerned.

I just hope my bros like ’em.

    Since I can’t sew, may I please have the beanie pattern? I only have one for babies & I’d love to have an adult one.
