1 pair of jeans (Or just the bottom 21" of two legs)
1 piece of fabric 15x20" (This is the canvas I used)
1 yard ribbon/twill tape
Cut down the inside seam of two legs cut to twenty one inches.
Square your leg pieces to the inside seam.
Join pieces. But do this so one small piece meets one big piece. I tried to make it clear with the photo.
Join pieces with a 3/8" seam.
Press seams flat.
Sew down seams.
Fold and press bottom about a half inch.
Pin canvas piece to top. This should be approx 15x20".
Sew canvas around sides and top. The bottom needn't be sewn to the denim but feel free to give the canvas a quick hem before pinning. (I cut my piece from the bottom of the curtain to this step was done for me.
Turn out. Now press the denim sides in to line up with the turned canvas.
Fold up the denim and add your tie strap. I used cotton twill tape. You can pin at this stage but it is a lot of fabric and I find if you go slow, denim doesn't need to be pinned.
Sew around the entire perimetre. Don't forget to back stitch a few stitches where the denim meets the canvas.
Once you have sewn the perimetre you can either mark with disappearing marker the lines you want to sew along to create the pockets or you can use a quilting guide set to the desired pocket width. I used a marker and marked out two 2.25" pockets on the ends and six 1.75" pockets in the middle. It made it super easy to sew super quick. You can do this in one continuous line starting at the bottom of one end and ending at the top of the other end. Don't forget to back stitch where the denim meets the canvas.
Ta-daaa! Your finished your manly toll roll!
If you use denim coloured thread in your bobbin, your quilting is barely discernible!
Now go put your brushes or knitting needles or scissors in it before you change your mind and give it to a deserving man in your life!
