Okay this might come as a shock, but how about a wide wristband that fastens with velcro and is made from a decent nylon with strips of magnets or even flexible magnets in the band where you could stick metal parts or small metal bits while working so it is always at hand?

Haha that's a neat idea and I can already see it in my head. Wouldn't it be a bit heavy, though?

Is the sketch what you described?

Very nearly, yes. Make it wider - My idea is something about 10cm wide so it can hold a few screws/ pins/ needles. This is not something you permanently wear so it does not need to be super light...

one can even ad a slot or two so you can carry small non magnetic tools, but this may make it “too much” - you decide...

What kind of tools will you use and carry with this band?
Seeing that this is typically where small material would be “stored” to be within reach while working, I’d say things like small jewelry screws, needles or pins, maybe small metal parts...
The tools that will go with this may be little scissors, cut-off knife, micro screwdrivers like jewelers use etc etc. Nothing too heavy obviously...😜

I can see you use this for needle-craft (working on canvas or leather even!), jewelry making and even model building. This can even work on bigger projects where you need to use a lot of smaller screws...

Cool. Would you mind taking some photos of the small tools you have? Here are some I have, can these be carried by this band?

Here are some references for ideas. “Rare earth magnets” could be sewn into this . These are “Wrist Admin Pouches” that I googled from the internet.

Sorry for the delay. I will draw a sketch and confirm the details first here and then I will submit it for prototype.
