(very) early birthday present

I don’t know about you, but I have a massive list of favourites on Etsy. Once in a while I browse through all of them, and sigh at the items that are now sold, drool over the items that are still for sale and sometimes, just sometimes, actually order something from my favourites.

Because it’s my birthday in a little over a month and because my blog has been doing so well lately, I decided to treat myself to a very appropriate gift; a crochet hook case! :) It is hand made and had to come all the way from South Korea. I never expected it to get here anywhere before April, but to my surprise yesterday it was already in my mailbox!

This beauty is made by Soyun, from Atelier de Soyun on Etsy. She has many cool cases and project bags in her shop; for crochet hooks but also for knitting needles, even circulars!

This is what the case looks like on the inside, empty:
I asked Soyun to create a wider pocket to provide for my scissors, and they fit perfectly, as well as all my hooks and stitch markers!
The case has a flap on top to protect your needles and to keep them from falling out when you roll up the case. I asked Soyun to sew ‘a creative being’ on it, which she did. (but you have to look real close to be able to read it – I guess the font isn’t really that suitable for letters…)

When you roll the case up it looks like this:
I love the button closure on it and the clever way she sewed the strap! It adds the perfect finishing touch :)

I’m already saving up for one of her project bags. I mean, look at them; how can you resist? (images c/o Soyun)

I totally want one of these now. Maybe I should point D in the direction of my Etsy favourites ;)
