Sewing a Crotchet Hook Case

Sewing a Crotchet Hook Case
I recently invested in a set of crotchet hooks, and really like how comfortable this set of crotchet hooks are. I use these hooks for variety of projects, and wanted to make sure I keep the hooks in one place. Since these hooks did not come with a case, I stitched a crotchet hook case using felt.

To make this crotchet hook case you will need the following material. It is a fun and quick project.

Cut out the felt to measure a rectangle, I cut it 14"x12". Feel free to change the measurements according to your preference.

I folded 4" up towards the center to make a pocket and pinned it. Then I placed the hooks, and using a pencil and a ruler drew the lines to make the small pockets to insert each hook. I made a total of 12 pockets. I made 11 of the pockets to measures 1" to 1 1/4" and one of it to measure 2" and left the flap open to easily pin tapestry needles.

In the left edge of the case, I placed one side of the 3 snap buttons using a needle and thread.

For the outer part of the case, I stitched a 1" wide ribbon all around the top and side edges, as well as in the middle of the case.

I closed the case into three like a brochure with the right side going towards the inside and stitched the other side of the 3 snap buttons onto the ribbon. This will allow the left side of the case to go on top and the snap buttons to close.

  12. I love this idea - which would also be useful for knitting needles and screwdrivers too - I can never find the right screwdriver in my tool box but with this helpful case I'd find it right away. :-)

  13. This is a lovely Crotchet Hook Case you did a great job. I need to get my sewing machine service. The tension is all off and it's not picking up the bottom tread. I try to fix it but it just not working. I may just buy a new one as it's $89 just to service it. I see new machine for $100.
