Zakka Patchwork Pencil Case...

A new hobby....


deserves a new accessory!

This is another project from the Zakka Style Sew-along...



Only I decided I needed a holder for my crochet hooks!

In my rush to get it finished, I attached the band closure to the wrong end!

It doesn't look 

quite like it's supposed to!


So to prove I'm not a total 'nuff-nuff'....

 I made another!

This one is for my sister, Helen....


We went to a crochet workshop together recently and this may encourage her

to keep practising!


Her efforts were much better than mine, however, so I need plenty of practise!



This little case came together almost magically!

Very clever indeed!


Happy sewing!

  2. If you didn't know where the band was in the pattern, you wouldn't think it was in the 'wrong' place - I like it!

    Have fun with the crochet granny squares xxx

  3. Great idea for your hooks. I've ordered the book having succumbed to all the brilliant things everyone is making. I would happily make this for my crochet hooks.

  10. There's zakka stuff popping up everywhere!! Love your crochet hook cases. The other day I had a nuff nuff moment and was calling crochet hooks "crochet sticks". Gbf gave me a strange look and told me they're hooks. Oops!! You'll be making all sorts of amazing crochet wonders in no time. And what a great thing to share with your sister,

  11. Is it in the wrong place? It looks right to me. Great crochet hook holders! I made mine as a pencil case but it's too short for pencils, so it is going to be a crochet hook case!
