For my mum and mum-in-law I made this little bag to hold their crochet hooks. It took a couple of hours to make them both and I used bits of fabric I already had. You could find a similar tutorial here. Of all the Christmas gifts I gave I was most excited about this one. I love how the cases turned out and I knew they would both find it to be very useful. You could use it for knitting needles or even colouring pencils.
I learnt this little trick, to help me sew each little pocket the same width. I stuck down my measuring tape with sticky tape on my sewing machine. Then I could line up the edge of the fabric along the measurements as I went to get them all one inch apart. (I don’t think I explained that very well, I hope you can see what I mean from the photo!)if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
