I recently participated in my first Organized Craft Swap.  "Yarnies vs. Sewists"
My partner's favorite color combo is red and black, and she preferred something non-girly. Styles she likes are rock, goth and steampunk. That was kind of challenge for me, as my style is more vintage-modern and I love light colors! But there is a Goth that lurks deep within my soul (wish I had pics of my Robert Smith worship days). I made a WIP tote for her crochet projects based off of my original Monster Art Totes that I made awhile back (here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340056.0). I found some great Alexander Henry fabric that fit my theme, and I lined the tote and made the side panels from it.





I also made a crochet hook book to fit inside the inside pocket of the tote. It is fleece and soft to protect the finish of her hooks.

That is so cute. From the thumbnail I thought it was a crayon holder, but crochet case is even better.

What a great design! It seems like you really thought about what she needs and made it look fabulous! I like all the different fabrics you used--they coordinate very well but don't look like they all came from the same collection at Joann's. The skull on the front is really fantastic!
