Today I felt like posting about an old craft project. It was for a giveaway on my personal blog (where the winners won something I would personally make for them) and Anne happened to be one of the winners. Anne, as I’m sure you noticed (check here, here, here, and here) is a great crocheter, so I decided to make her a crochet hook case. It has been awhile since I made this, but here is what I remember.
- two coordinating fabrics, one in cotton, the other corduroy (to add stability). From what I remember it was less than a fat quarter for each piece of fabric.
- coordinating ribbon (2 pieces about 10-12 inches long)
- sew wrong sides of fabric together (leaving a 4 inch gap on one side to turn right side out)
- turn right side out, press
- fold up one of the long sides for the pocket (used a crochet hook to measure how deep to make the pocket), press and pin
- fold down the other long side about 2 inches, press and pin
- tuck ribbons in pocket edge
- sew pockets and flap down
- measure crochet hooks against pocket to determine section width, mark and sew
- insert crochet hooks, roll up case and tie ribbons
(Sorry for the blurry quality of these pictures. From what I remember this fabric was really hard to get a clear picture of…)
