Oooh! Isn't it chilly?
This is a mainly picture post as we have been away for the weekend to snowy Wiltshire and also Gloucester so very little time to write a post. I wanted to share my creation with you as it's the first time I've got the sewing machine out in a long time. I also didn't want to miss out, as it is Wendy's 100th post over on Handmade Monday. Yippee! Congratulations Wendy!
I have been meaning to make a holder for my hooks for a while now, but I wanted a nice large one so I didn't run out of space.
I chose some pretty red floral fabric I had in my stash and edged it in red cotton also from my stash.
You can see how long (wide) it is in this picture. I even had red ribbon for the fastenings, in the right 'red', in my stash too.
Here is the inside. I added a flap to prevent the hooks from falling out.
Some of you may remember I had a little play with embroidery, so rather than waste my efforts I thought I would put it to some use.
I embroidered some simple birds on a perch either side of the word .......
You can see I stitched different size spaces for the hooks in gold to pick up the gold in the flowers on the fabric.
And there you have it! A completed crochet hook roll with plenty of space for all my hooks :)
What do you all use to store your equipment? Have you made things to suit you or have you found some really useful ready made storage? I'd love to hear from you all.
Thanks for reading! I'm off to watch 'Call the Midwife' now. See you over at Handmade Monday.
