30 Day De-Stash #26: Crochet Hook Case

Looks like I have to make two posts today. I started this crochet hook case last night, but it didn't get finished until this morning.   It was a little trickier than I thought to get the idea in my head to become a reality.

With a little patience and a lot of hot glue, I ended up with this:
I have a lot of crochet hooks.  Of some sizes, I have doubles.  A few triples or quadruples if I needed them for a group project of some kind.  I've looked around for a crochet hook holder that could hold them all.  I couldn't find one that even came close.

This holder has a few flaps sewn inside to hold more hooks.  It comes with a pocket for yarn needles and paper clips and another to hold mini-scissors.  In the back are a few big spots for those plastic "speed hooks."  I was happy to find that I even have some extra spots in case I need them.

I made a crochet hook case a while ago and it just never worked.  The hooks were always slipping out.  That's still the case here, sadly, but at least there's a zipper to help keep them in when I'm carrying the case around.

As long as all that glue holds, I think we're in good shape.


  1. Did you use cardboard or something to make it a little more stiff or is it just fabric? I like it and I desperately need something to hold all my hooks. I keep putting them in different places and can't find them when I want them!

  2. I did use cardboard, the kind like you find on the backs of notebooks. You could probably use a few layers of cereal box too. I wrapped the outer fabric around one piece of cardboard and the inner fabric around another, making two layers. I used hot glue for everything except attaching the zipper. I couldn't get it to stay in and work right with the glue so I hand stitched it.This tutorial is another way you could go: http://littlebirdiesecrets.blogspot.com/2011/01/crochet-hook-clutch-tutorial-get.html
