A razor case made of tan-coloured linen is always a useful possession for a man. In order to get sufficient depth it will be necessary to buy half a yard of the linen, but this will be enough to make two cases to hold four or six razors each.
Cut off a piece of linen 15 1/2 inches long; one raw edge of this is turned up to form a pocket, and the other is turned over to form a flap. The main part of the case must be stiffened with a piece of holland or coarse canvas linen. To do this, cut a piece of holland measuring 15 1/2 inches long by 7 1/4 inches broad, and a piece of the tan linen a little larger.
Turn the linen over the holland around the edges, and tack it. Lay this, with the holland, side downwards on the wrong side of the piece of linen cut for the case about 4 1/2 inches from the lower edge.
Turn the lower part up on to the stiffened piece to form a pocket. This pocket has to be divided up by rows of stitching into little slots to hold the razors. Each slot should be about 1 3/4 inches wide, and the first one should be placed about that distance from the edge of the case. In stitching the slots, care should be taken to put the stitches only through the stiffening, and not through the back of the case itself. When the slots are finished. the stiffened part must then be stitched down on to the back part of the case at the top.
Before making the pocket the upper edge should be turned in and bound with Prussian binding to match the linen, and after the pocket is stitched, and the case otherwise complete, the sides and upper flap should be finished in a similar fashion with Prussian binding.
