Trifold Crochet Case to Sew

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills

Pattern Description:

Do you have crochet hooks in every size imaginable? My daughter does, and she hasn't been able to find a case that will hold all of them. She asked me to design some thing for her that has enough space for every hook she uses. This trifold case is the result.

The pattern is designed for anyone who has basic sewing skills. Make one for yourself, or make one for a friend. Fill it with hooks and little odds and ends for a special gift.

I added numerous special features to this case:
a loop handle that can slip over a wrist
an inner flap that drops down to cover hooks
15 generous spaces for crochet hooks in graduated sizes
a zippered pocket for the little essential odds and ends
a magnetic snap closure plus a button for added security
a plastic canvas insert to keep the shape firm so the case doesn't roll closed

Instructions are very detailed and the pages are filled with photos and diagrams to help with every step of the process. A tutorial for attaching binding to this project, quilts, mug rugs, and such is included. This method creates mitered corners and requires no hand stitching.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have though email or on my Facebook page.
