I made these for the recent MAF swap for a partner who liked sugar skulls and knitting.  I made a crochet hook roll, and complimentary sugar skull stitch markers (posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=400289.msg4710255#msg4710255 , and a fabric covered craft journal/sketchbook.

I am not really a huge sugar skull/dias des muertes fan (more guns and roses, tattoo style for me), but I really did like this fabric.



Hook case, roll up style with several slots for hooks, and for yarn needles/scissors

Added a couple of extra pockets inside for slipping in pens, notes, patterns

Ooooh! I'm in love with it all Smiley I am a HUGE sugar skull and DdlM fan. Unfortunately, I'm not the biggest fan of sewing lol. You did a fantastic job.

Thank you - I love the fabric too, especially contrasting with the red.  My goal for 2011 was to improve my sewing (and donate more blood) and I am happy to say that I think I am progressing with both!
