a Crochet Hook Roll

Good morning, Improv.

good morning Improv

Even if my head is pounding and my nose is sniffling, this head cold can't hold me back from a good morning when there's improv piecing afoot.

Crochet Hook Roll

That piece of patchwork was designed for this crochet hook roll.  I opted to use the patchwork as the background so that the pockets could be made from super-sturdy Essex Yarn Dyed in Black.  Just say "no" to wimpy pockets.  The roll is made to fit those fat Clover crochet hooks.  It's a camper gift for a very patient camper who opted to wait until after my craft show so I could make her something extra useful.   Well, it's after for sure.   Hopefully the wait is worth it!

roll it on up

Fold down the flap down to encase the hooks and behold a bright pink Quilt Blocks Spectrum Stars print (at Fat Quarter Shop, Fresh Modern Fabric and Sew Modern).  Roll...

for a super camper

and tie her closed.  Easy, peasy, done.

She's stuffed with a bit of batting and outfitted with ribbon tie closure.  Sorry, no tutorial today.  The head is still aching.

But...even so, I do sense a tingling of want-to-crochet.  It is fall again, isn't it?

  7. I hope you feel better pronto! One would never know you were battling a head cold with such a pretty finish, though. I love how the inside has the patchwork and the outside is is simpler.

  9. This is absolutely stunning. My crochet and knitting needles are a mess, all over the place in the house and I never know where they are. I really think I need something like this.
