Is it just me or are the men in our lives really hard to make for??  When I came across this tutorial recently over at Sew4Home I just knew I had to make one for my hubby who is always ranting about not being able to find the remotes after the kids have had them! 

My version is quilted rather than being just one sturdy piece of fabric for the backing as the tutorial suggests. I also varied the pocket sizes a little and made the whole thing 1" narower, then I bound it using the No-Snit Binding tutorial from You Go Girl..... love that tutorial!

Surprisingly enough, the remotes seem to be liking their new home and haven't been found underneath the lounge cushions since.....hubby is most impressed! Gotta love it when things go to plan....LOL

I would love to hear of your favourite Man-gifts!

Until next time.....

  1. Love it Tracy... I've made one of these too but not this pattern... We love it now that it stays on the arm of the lounge. Can't say everyone puts the remotes back....


Thanks so much for your comments...... It's nice to know i'm not just talking to myself!
