Hobby Holster

I love when I come across a simple product that makes my life easier.  I first saw this product at CHA back in January.  To be honest, this was one of the clever products I saw at the show and I knew I needed one for my craft table.
The Hobby Holster is a heat resistant, silicone pocket that holds your glue gun (even when it is plugged in).  It is made of 100% silicone and has a divided pocket for holding the glue gun and glue sticks.  No holes or hooks to keep it in place, just a flap that grips to the counter top.  That means if I'm working on something at the kitchen table instead of the craft room, I can pull it up and take it with me.  genius.
I find it so much easier to have the glue gun in the pocket instead of the desk top, since every single time, the glue gun falls over and I inevitably get glue on something that I shouldn't.

The flap that sticks to the table top even has a handy measuring guide.
The Hobby Holster comes in 4 colors, pink, green, turquoise, and grey. 

 Give Away
The nice people at Hobby Holster have provided me with a turquoise Holster to give away!  So if you might be interested in having your own Hobby Holster, just leave me a comment to win.  I will pick the winner on Thursday morning, July 3rd.  Seriously, what crafter doesn't need one of these?
 
Hobby Holster is also offering One Lucky Day readers a 25% discount the entire month of July.
Use promo code Lucky25

See you back here on Thursday with a winner and a new tutorial.
now carry on,

  64. This is a fabulous! I am always knocking my heat gun over.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I was reading every bit of this posting hoping you would mention where to buy one. When I saw you were giving one away I actually did a little dance. My glue sticks are always on the other side of the room when I need them and I always drop the first one, so it gets lost in the craft abyss. This holster would be perfect( and no more glue stuck all over my filing cabinet where I hang it up)!

    ReplyDelete

  91. What a GREAT product. I don't use my glue gun all the time because it falls and I seam to get glue everywhere I don't want. The Hobby Holster would stop that and I think I'd use my glue gun more.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Now, how cool is this - literally. I fear my hot glue gun and rarely use it because it is always attacking innocent things like me, my carpet, other things on my table. What a great soulution. Would really put this to use. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  101. What a fab idea. My glue gun never behaves! It never stands on it's own two feet. It gets mess everywhere and has habit of coming to rest where it shouldn't and buckles my craft mat into the bargain! Ha ha well I suppose I should take some of the blame!!!!! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Oh my that is cool! I would absolutely see a need for that in my future (lol) - Thanks for the chance to win one instead.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  127. Paula, what a cool-looking product! I would LOVE to win one. Thanks for the opportunity. I'm wondering if another use could be for our heat tools? Don't know if the Ranger one would fit, or the Milwaukee/Stampin Up one would. But the holster would be great for those as well. I also found another website this vendor has selling holsters for hair curling/straight irons. Great concept and definitely perfect for glue guns! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  128. Keeping my fingers crossed! I wonder what took so long for the invention of this handy dandy tool!
