Hi everyone...this is my first post but I've lurked around craftster for a few months. I just finished a birthday present for my fiancé - a case for his crochet hooks (we had a DIY gifts Christmas so he asked my grandma to teach him how to crochet).

We are both children of the 80s and he is a movie nut so the fabric on the inside has scenes from Indiana Jones. The outside is dark brown corduroy. It is 9x12 inches when it is open. I didn't use a pattern, so it is a bit crooked, hence the "rectangul-ish". Still, I am quite impressed with myself, so I thought that I would post and show it off! Sorry the pictures are so crappy...I used the webcam!

Deleted the pics to save bandwidth!  Tongue

(He made the afghan that the hook case is sitting on!!)
