A little something different today ❤ I don’t make a big show of it, but I also love to crochet 😀 I find it’s a great relaxing activity, especially one to do while watching shows and movies. I’ve been trying to work through my yarn stash (without a lot of luck, haha!) by doing some simple and classic animals that come together quickly. I don’t … Continue reading Free (Crochet) Pattern Friday! Octopus Amigurumi
I should have made this project ages ago! Do you ever make yourself something like that? Something that you didn’t even realize how much you needed until it was finally done? Well, this case for my crochet hooks is about more useful than any other project I’ve made so far – and yet it took me so long to finally get around to it. While I have all of my knitting needles and crochet hooks neatly categorized in a binder by size, I didn’t really have anything to hold them while I was currently working on a project. Since my boyfriend also crochets, it was resulting in a lot of lost hooks and yarn needles while we worked on amigurumi and the like since we had nowhere good to put the tools while we took a break from our projects.
So I finally decided to make a nice case for the tools we’re currently using. This includes one side with hook pockets, ranging from large for pencils and really thick hooks, down to the tiniest slots for really skinny hooks. The other side includes pockets for stashing my paper patterns, and a zippered pocket for tiny tools like yarn needles and stitch markers. The whole thing is done up in some leftover green and black faux suede with some gunmetal snaps so the whole thing looks anything but granny square :B Now I know my boyfriend will be proud to carry it around when he takes his projects on the road – and no more lost tools!
