Crochet Hook Roll

After playing 'where have I hidden the crochet hooks?' for the umpteenth time I thought making a crochet hook roll was a sensible idea. I used my pattern from the Meet Me at Mikes book and just made more stitching lines inside to fit all my crochet hooks. I used some little Echino fabric scraps for the outside. I had planned on using leather cord to tie it up but after searching everywhere I couldn't find any, but I did find rather a large amount of red ric-rac so used that instead.
So after spending much of the week searching the craft room for little things I can't put off a big clean up any more. I know I am never going to have an amazing clean room that you would find in a magazine, but it would be nice to know where everything is.

So cute and your little patchwork squares on the outside are beautifully done too!

Love (not really) that game, I have lots like that. Great little roll. I made one a couple of years ago, but didn't take into account the seams, and the hooks hang out the top. Maybe I should make another one.

That is lovely!!! I made a hook roll a little while ago but I am sure yours is much more professionaly done! However, warts and all, it is great to have all my hooky things in one place! xx

This is such a beautiful roll: where do you find the time? *jealous* I love the patchwork pattern on the outside. Reminds me of a notebook cover I made last year (lost the photos, but the Moda 'recipe' is here: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/11/journal-covers.html#more) I love reading your blog, it's always full of such fun! :)
