One of the first sewing projects I ever made was a case for my crochet hooks. I must have used some type of tutorial but I don't remember - all I know is that I "splurged" by ordering 2 fat quarters of pretty fabric from Etsy and used premade bias tape since I didn't know how to make my own!
This past summer when I was having all sorts of sewing machine issues, I was crocheting A LOT. (Remember this, this, and this?) And everytime I would take out my crochet case, I would think to myself - Beth, you really need to make a new one!!! Yep, I had no nostalgia for it being my first project (you'll notice I'm not even showing a photo.)
Needless to say, I have now made myself a new case. And as you can see I used more than a couple fat quarters of pretty fabric and I made the bias tape (well, straight grain but you know what I mean . . .)
Of course, now with my sewing machine, my new found love of english paper piecing, and the 5 million hats I made this summer, I'm not sure I when I'm actually going to get out the crochet hooks but when I do, I'll love using the new case!
