I’ve been a real busy bee lately! I have so many projects on my needle and in my head, that I can barely find the time to photograph everything I finish! (but that really is a luxury problem, don’t you think?)
So I’ve seen a lot of DIY crochet hook clutches surface on the interwebs and I couldn’t help myself, so I made one! :) And I had just the right fabric. Remember my applique pillow? The inside or filling of that pillow was taken out of a thrifted pillow. That pillow was covered in an orange corduroy fabric that was just perfect for this clutch! I also had some cool stripey fabric in my fabric basket (which I also used for the applique pillow) that was perfect for my crochet hooks: all I had to do was sew on the straight lines :)
I decided to include my most used hooks, a pair of scissors, my stitch markers, some darning needles and some sewing needles. For the needle pockets and the scissors pocket I used some cut off sponge and sewed it along the bottom, so the needles have a place to sit in, and won’t come poking through the fabric :)
The sewing wasn’t perfect but still I think I managed pretty good :) Take a look!
