Crochet Hook Case


Crochet Hook Case, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

Not a Project 365 entry; just a craft project I finished today and wanted to show off. :)

I made this case for my crochet hooks by following this great tutorial. The fabric with the hearts is from my stash; I've had it for years, and think it is SO cute, but haven't really known what to do with it (I'm not exactly going to make a dress for myself with tiny hearts). So, this was a perfect project to use up a bit of it. I'm not thrilled with my choice of bias tape for the "ribbon," so I might change that out at some point, but otherwise I think it turned out great. Plus, it's something very handy that I will use regularly.

Here's how it looks when rolled up (except, like a dork, I forgot to fold over the top for the photo; normally, one edge would be folded over to keep the hooks from sliding out the top).

Next, I'm going to make some adjustments to the pattern to make one for holding my knitting needles. YAY for things that are pretty and functional.

Ooh! Wanna make one for me? Except I can't give you any help at ALL, LOL -- my sewing machine hasn't been used in years -- all the grease in the gears is probably dried up -- and I just gave ALL my mom's fabric scraps (bags and bags of them) to my quilt-happy cousin who lives 150 miles away. I keep my crochet hooks in a jar. Knock it over, and guess what? ;)

Knitting needle roll-up
Hi - I found this post from your comment on the tutorial for the crochet hook roll-up... I too was planning on making one for both my crochet hooks and knitting needles... I was just wondering if you were successful in making one for knitting needles and how it turned out... and if you have any suggestions for me as to how you adjusted the size... I'm not quite sure how large to make everything....

Thanks,
Cherie
