I am not sure that this belongs in this category, but I have seen pencil/crayon rolls here so I am going for it! I have recently taken up crocheting and have been going to classes once a week. Most women there have their hooks and supplies in fancy cases they buy online, or (like I had) a ziploc freezer bag. Since I was a seamstress 1st I thought that I could make myself a cute case so here it is!
The case unrolled. It has 9 spaces that are wide enough to fit the big hooks, or multiple small hooks. There is also a smaller pocket for tapestry needles on top of a wide pocket for scissors and stitch markers:

The top folds over to secure the hooks so they do not slide out when the case is rolled up:

And all rolled up and tied together with a piece of flower ribbon:

Thanks for looking  Wink

I have to say that I'm not a crochet roll fan - I don't take all my hooks when I'm working on a project - I only grab what I need - and even for storage I own faaaaar too many hooks lol (I teach some classes on occasion so I have some junky hooks - uh, ones without bamboo handles lol) anyhooo... I love your fabric choices!!  Just fantastic - and I love that you added a spot for yarn needles!  All the other rolls I have seen (and made for others) forget the yarn needles - super idea!

You did a fantastic job making it!  It's just too cute!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!
