DIY Tutorial: Fabric Bar Tool Roll Up Pouch

I find inspiration for DIY projects all over, and this time it came in the form of the cutest little tea towel that I ever laid my eyes on. My little orange and strawberry-adorned find serves as the perfect starting point for keeping bar tools nice and organized: a fabric bar tool roll-up pouch! Make one for yourself, or grab a few of your favorite new or vintage tea towels and make a bunch to give as hostess gifts! –Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue
