Crafting my pants off!

I hope that it's ok to post this here.. It is relevant to crochet, and I don't know where else to post it. If it needs to go somewhere else, please do tell!

So, I rarely get time to crochet, so I like to take a bag with a ball of yarn and my hooks around with me. I'll crochet a few rows in the car, at my boyfriends, before class, whenever I can. I kept my hooks in a plastic baggy, but they kept poking holes in it and falling out. So over this weekend I made a hook case for myself. It's not perfect, but I love it!

I made it out of a place-mat, elastic, and blue binding.



PS. I got ALL my hooks at goodwill:D I love thrifting for craft supplies!

That case came out really well.  I love that black and white fabric with the blue contrast--you should make a matching little handbag to carry your yarn around in.

Thanks guys! It was really, super duper easy to make, and barely took me an hour. I made mine out of a placemat, but it can just as easily be made from scratch. Here's how to make it:

1. Cut two rectangles of material out and some interfacing. Make them twice as tall as your tallest crochet hook, and as wide as you want it to be.

2. Cut out a strip of elastic, as wide as the rectangles.

3. Sew the tape in about the middle of the piece of material that you want to be the inside.

4. Sew vertical lines along the strip to accommodate your hooks. I did an even amount of 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1" spots, to fit all of my hook sizes.

5. If you use iron on interfacing, iron the pieces together. Otherwise, baste around all three sheets so you have basically one doublesided rectangle.

6. Fold up the bottom edge of the rectangle, so it overlaps the elastic just slightly and pin or sew the sides. This pocket ensures that the hooks will not fall out.

7.  Buy some extra wide, double fold binding and sew it around the outside edges, and it's finished!

When closing, fold the top over the hooks so they cannot fall out, and any type of closure you'd like. I used extra binding folded in half, and sewed to one of the sides.

Hope this helps!:)

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.
