A friend of mine had a special request.
She has inherited her grandmother's crochet needles
and wanted a "book" similar to my needle books
but larger to keep them in.
So....this is what I made!!!
It measures about 7" wide x about 8" high when it is closed.
It really does look like one of my needle keeps!!!
I so hope she loves it ~
Here's an in-progress photo, with pins and lace all over the place.
I made my own pattern using a few crochet hooks that I had.
And yes, I dipped into my yummy stash of lace!!!
It's so much easier to find what I need now that
I've organized it. I have two suitcases full of these treasures...
you can NEVER have enough!
I always say, you can't make beautiful things
if you don't have beautiful supplies ~
The inside first page. Each page has a flap so the crochet hooks don't slide out.
Thank you Vee of A Haven for Vee for sharing that little tip with me!!
I pulled the hooks out a little bit to hold the flap up so you can see the skinny pockets.
The inside center ~
And back page. It will hold sixteen crochet hooks!!
I ended up taking apart a beautiful pair of vintage clip-on earrings and sewed
them to the front. Since this book was bigger, the adornments needed to be larger too.
So there you have it.
I hope she loves it!!!
Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to dear friends ~
Wishing you a great Tuesday!
hugs and love,
