this is my version of the "roll your own" case. it's completely crocheted (out of possibly the ugliest yarn ever created). aside from the yarn, i really like it, and it didn't take long at all.

here's a close-up of the individual compartments (running-stitched from the same yarn...edges also sewn up with that god awful stuff):

this is the edge of the flap (shell stitched with a chain threaded through for the tie):

...and here it is rolled up and tied:


when i was stitching the hook and scissor pouches, i left the ends raw...that way, you can see better where the hooks go, plus it gives you a cool little fringe.

were i to do it over, i'd definitely use a thinner (and prettier) yarn so that it didn't make such a chunky roll.

How appropriate to make a chrochet hook case by crocheting. I was thinking of doing this but thought the hooks might fall through the bottom. Have you had any problems with this?

Looks really good with the fringe and shell detail and I don't mind the yarn that much.

I was actually worried about that too, but it hasn't been a problem. I used single stitch and my trusty G hook, and it's pretty solid. If you used thinner yarn and an even smaller hook, I'm sure it'd be even sturdier.
