Crochet Hook Roll

In my recent drive to organize my sewing room I took some time to make some cases, holders and covers. A couple of weeks ago I made a case for my cell phone and IPod. Today I took a couple of hours to make this pretty holder for my crochet hooks.

While I haven’t crocheted anything lately, I have had the urge to get back into it. Like knitting, the popularity of crocheting has been on the rise over the last couple of years. As a result there are so many lovely patterns available. And I am inspired. Here’s what I did to make the crochet hook roll:

I started with two 11 1/2” x 14 1/2” pieces of fabric and a piece of medium weight non-woven fusible interfacing (Pellon type). Fuse the interfacing to the outer fabric. Stitch the two pieces of fabric using a 1/4” seam and with right sides facing. Leave opening in the lower right side.

Fold a 24” length of 1/4” wide ribbon in half and pin between the layers 3” from the fold. Topstitch 1/8” from the edge on all sides. Mark 3/4” to 1” pockets and topstitch along the marked lines. I marked four 1” pocket for my larger hooks and nine 3/4” pockets for my finer hooks.

Tuck the hooks inside the pockets. Fold the top down, roll and tie.

Of course you can make a roll for your knitting needles in the very same way.
