Hope you’re gearing up for a fun weekend! I wanted to share with you that I finally added my Wood Carrier PDF Pattern to my shop!
This pattern was part of Making magazine’s Forest issue a while back and I finally got around to making it available as a PDF. I know it is definitely a specialty project — but it’s a useful one if you burn wood, go camping, or know someone who does!
My parents moved to a log cabin a few years ago and they primarily burn wood for heat. I gifted them the sample Wood Carrier I had made for the magazine and they’ve enjoyed using it! It’s been fun to see it get put to use.
The Wood Carrier is a fairy straightforward sew – nothing too complicated. It would make a great gift for anyone who burns wood or even someone who likes making campfires or has a fire pit. It features a double layer base and a buckled closure to keep wood secure.
I do suggest going with a polyester webbing for durability sake (the cotton webbing in my shop would still work okay, but might not hold up for the rugged treatment this carrier may receive). A quick Etsy search should turn up plenty of results! I also used a Buckleguy side release buckle for this sample. I know it’s probably not very easy to see in the pictures, but this is a link to the buckle I used for the sample.
- Pattern: Wood Carrier PDF Pattern (no templates to print – just measure and cut your fabric!)
- Fabric: waxed canvas from AL Frances Textiles (I’d recommend 10-12 oz. waxed canvas)
- Buckle (from Buckleguy)
- search Etsy for polyester webbing or try your local sewing supply shop!
Have a great weekend!
