Every drummer needs a drumstick holder. Even you Rockband types. Make this simple drumstick holder that even has a pocket to hold that drum key which you can never find when you need it.
Yes, these are Caitlin's drums. Gurlz rock.
This project was done entirely using a serger, a sewing machine that quickly binds and trims a neat edge. You could also do this on a regular sewing machine or sew it by hand.
Good beginner sewing project to get a feel for turning things inside out for a finished look.
Step 1: Some of my favorite things...
This drumstick holder is essentially a cloth tube attached to the tom-tom or cymbal stand with a pair of fabric ties. A cut up plastic drink bottle provides the shell that we will wrap with fabric. The rigid tube stays open so you can place your sticks in easily. The bottom is a two layer soft fabric bottom so you don't get a bounce or noise when you plunk in the drumsticks.
You will need:
a clean empty 1-liter plastic drink bottle.
you could probably do with an 8 inch length of 4 inch diameter pvc pipe too.
sturdy fabric in the pattern of your choice.
I couldn't find any pink camouflage so I made do from my stash.
