Something New

Now that I have a fabric stash to speak of I figured it was time to stop hoarding it and put it to good use. It is so difficult to cut into that stuff, particularly the nice little folded fat quarters, so pretty and neat. But I tore into my stash the other day and got down to designing a crochet hook keeper. I wanted something that would make me happy (ie hooks don't fall out and onto the floor) and pretty. Here are some photos of the results of an afternoon of work.
Earlier in this blog I talked about buying some fabric at a quilt shop in Ft McMurray, Alberta and I gave you a tour of that shop. Well, I opened up those FQs and put them to work!

needles stay put in this case!
The green version.

I am very happy with the results and I have offered them up for sale in my shop at LadeeBee Supplies. I'll be making more, so stay tuned. This month I'll be debuting these needle keepers at Wise Daughters Craft Market Yarn Party and you are invited!

  1. SO lovely! No reason they couldn't also hold pencil crayons, paintbrushes, etc!
