Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a super simple project for the novice seamstress and designer.

Pattern Description:

I love the look and practicality of felted crochet hook cases for bamboo and aluminum hooks, but when it comes to the tiny steel hooks, they poke right through the felt no matter how dense I make it. That's why I designed this case specifically for all of my steel hooks. Now I can keep them all organized in one place and find just the size I need for any project. The case also slips into a project bag and can keep all the hooks you need close to hand without them jangling and tangling in the bottom of the bag.
The case has eight pockets, each of which is roomy enough for two or three hooks. I currently have a total of twelve hooks in my case and there is still room for more. Because of the size, this is a great project for using up remnants of fabric from other projects. Load the bag with a starter set of steel hooks and include a ball of fine crochet thread and you have a really special gift for any crafter you know.
This pattern does not include pattern pieces, but rather the instructions for making your own pattern pieces. In this manner even the most inexperienced person will learn how easy it is to make your own simple designs for bags and other items you might want to make around the house.


  • One fat eight of the outer fabric
  • One fat eight of the lining fabric
  • If the lining and are to be the same, then it can be made with one fat quarter as I have done in the cutting example in the pattern
  • Paper scissors and newspaper to make pattern pieces (optional)
  • Straight pins to affix pattern pieces to fabric
  • Fabric shears to cut out fabric pieces
  • Sewing machine with standard presser foot and ability to sew straight forward and back - no fancy stitching required
  • Correct needle size for the material being used
  • Seam ripper, thread clipper or embroidery scissors, sewing gauge or ruler
  • Fabric markers (I prefer washout)

You Will Also Need:

  • Tread to coordinate with fabrics
