First Sewing project of 2014
Hi friends. Hope you had a great weekend.
Once again, putting my fears aside, I have boldly gone where I usually don't go!! Sorry...I think watching William Shatner everyday in "Boston Legal" is affecting me... :D
Now on to my latest project, which is a sewing project. Yes, finally gathered courage to go near my sewing machine once again. My last sewing project was eons ago!! And here is my latest creation:
A crochet hook case. Yes, even my sewing has to be in connection with crochet!!
I had purchased a set of crochet hooks from Ebay some time back. I think they are from China...or maybe Hong Kong. My first Ebay purchase :)
I wish I had step by step photos to show you. But believe me, you don't want to see my haphazard process....which usually involves a lot of cursing under my breath, along with walking away from my sewing machine a couple of times!
So anyways, here is the finished product;
Eight pockets for the hooks and one for the measuring tape...or scissors.
A flap so that the hooks don't slip out of their nooks.
My obedient hooks tucked into their beds. :)
Finally put the magnetic snap I had purchased ages ago to use.
I think the two fabrics match each other very well. What do you say?
I love the fabric on the outside which is a Bandhani print. I say "print" because real bandhani is a highly skilled and time consuming process of tie n dye. It is very popular in Gujarat, the state where I am residing at present.
As my last crochet hook case was a roll up, I went for a wallet style this time. With the help of various sewing blogs and YouTube videos, I think my sewing machine and I are becoming friends....hehe.
Next, I am going to try and sew linings for a couple of crochet purses I made recently. So until then, Happy Crafting. Wish you a great week ahead.
