Crochet Hook Case

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:

Sewing crochet hook case

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;

Crochet hook case



 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.

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.

  1. Applause, applause!! Really, hats off, Sangeetha :-). I can understand your fears of contact to your sewing machine very well :o). I got mine about 1,5 years ago and back then I thought I would make many nice things with it..... but up to now I only shortened some trousers of my son, and that's it *lol*. So I'm very impressed by your beautiful crochet hook case!! Great job and super pretty ♥

  3. I love your hook case. I really need one of these as my hooks are scattered around the house in various drawers and on various shelves! I can never find them when I need them. I love the fabrics you've chosen. Do you have a tutorial? Have a great week xx

  9. The hook case is very neat! is it your own pattern? I like the flap above the hooks to prevent slipping out and the wallet style. Love the fabric choices too.
