I'm tired of having separate cases for my crochet hooks. The Hamaka set came with their own, so did the Susan Bates Silvalumes. And I have two more hooks that have no cases because I bought them individually. I carry along my crochet projects more often compared to my knit ones so it's really necessary to have my own case. I saw several styles of crochet hook cases. A lot of them sewed, but some were made using crochet. I chose the path of the sewn.
I mostly followed the guide: roll-up crochet hook case tutorial. But instead of 1.75 cm pockets, I made 2cm ones. I also did not use bias tape/piping so it's all plain around the case.
- Pockets for each crochet hook.
- Pocket for scissors.
- Pockets for yarn needles.
- Foldable top part to secure the hooks in the case.
- A ribbon long enough to tie the roll/case.
- We have plenty of cloth at home. Whenever my sister goes to Divisoria, she buys all sorts of cloth. After all, you never know which ones you'd use for cosplay. And we live far from Divisoria so it's easier to stock the cloth and use them later on.
- We have plenty of ribbons. Same reason as above. If the ribbons weren't from Divisoria, it's from VC Trading or Carolina's.
- There are plenty of patterns online. Aside from the link I shared above, there's a pattern for the clutch style crochet hook case.
- I'm a bum right now so I have time to do this.
- I forgot about the pocket for the yarn needles.
- My sewing isn't that good. Uneven lines. FTL.
- The pocket for the darning needles looks MEH. I'd just use it as a place to pin the needle holder. I plan to make another case for my knitting needles, etc. I have only one set of yarn needles
True enough, this doesn't take an entire day to finish. You just have to be patient about measuring and cutting the cloth. Even sewing newbies like myself can make these.
