50g worsted yarn Hook size: 5mm - Lining fabric: I used a re-purposed scarf (minimum size required: double the final size and add 2" to this length and width) - Needle and crochet thread no.10 in colour to match either the yarn or lining fabric
What was your inspiration?
I saw a similar item on http://mmm-fruit.com/2011/03/ondori-crochet-hook-case/ but it had no pattern so I decided to write my own as I crocheted along.
What are you most proud of?
The hand-stitched lining as I am usually very reluctant to do any serious stitching!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This may seem like a lot of work but it is in fact, very simple and quick to complete. Well-worth the final product which you will be using regularly. Also a wonderful gift idea for crafty friends.
