I couldn't wait any longer to post my entry, so here it is!

I taught myself how to do the basic tunisian crochet stitch a couple of months ago.  It's a lot of fun because my mom has been crocheting this way since I was a kid and it is a neat way to bond more with her.

I have seen crochet hook holders made using tunisian crochet before, and I just started knitting about 6 months ago, so I thought I'd make a holder for all of my double pointed needles. I put a number bead under each set so I'd remember which was which.

On the outside, I added some cute brads from Doodlebugs that I have been saving for just the right project!  Then I added loop closures and some pom poms just for fun. It's kind of bulky because it is double layered, but it holds its shape well. 

Thanks for looking!


I love looms.

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I would LOVE to make one for myself and for my step-mom! we currently have our DPN's in pencil bags... we usually guess the matching set.. how wonderful it would be to give this to her for her birthday! could I please have the pattern? or a kind of walk-through?
I love this idea!

It's just the basic tunisian stitch.  You can make it as long and wide as you want, then make a second one the same size.  Crochet both pieces together at the sides, add some loops for buttons, and that's about it!  There are a lot of tutorials for the basic tunisian stitch on youtube.

Congrats on winning the crochet contest! This was my second most favourite entry (after my own Grin), I like the color and the simple functional design very much. Hope you win against the knit winner!
