Crochet hook case

Since I am doing quite a lot of crocheting lately, I decided to make a crochet hook case. Without searching the net for tutorials, I decided to make my own. It came out a bit bigger than I intended, but has lots of space inside. I can store all my hooks, needles, scissors, tape measure, etc. in the pockets.I made a flap that closes with a magnetic snap on the back. I used a lovely dark brown corduroy fabric and cotton for the lining. Not a very portable size, so I need to make another one...

I also crocheted my first hat last weekend. This was the 5th try! I don't even have a picture of it since my niece now owns it. I even found myself offering to crochet her a little bag that matches the hat!

Anyway, the bag is finished already. Complete with plastic tubing inside the handle. I was really pleased to find a button that matched the pink yarn perfectly! Really cute bag that started with a specific pattern and ended up being completely different. Why can I not follow a pattern?

This means that I will have to make myself another hat, and the bag is cute too - must have one!

Did I tell you that I am the winner of the 'Thinkin' outside the Box" challenge? I won a gift voucher to the lovely Superbuzzy store! Thanks again, Kate for hosting the challenge! And my lovely prize!

CONGRATULATIONS on your win!! Cute bag and amazingly perfect button!
I, as you well know, can also not follow patterns (perhaps it is an SA thing :-D )
