I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Quilted Case for Hooks or Needles

The Quilted Star Case for Knitting Needles is done. I am very proud of myself as it came out beyond my fondest dreams. Very exquisite combination of colors. I showed you yesterday that I have made the star, but it needs more than the star. I added some material on the top as you Can see and some edging at the bottom. This is the back as you know. If you think it looks pretty in pictures, the photographs make no justice to how pretty it is. The material is very nice, nothing like good quality cotton.

This is the front with some of the needles that will go in here. It has a lot of compartments. I made this in different colors and different size compartments as you can see. The top two compartments have filling, the rest does not. I just wanted to see what it felt like and how easy or hard it was to sew these layers. It was tricky, but easy as pie.

This second picture shows you the folding top. I decided to put the stitch markers at the top instead. I think they will be better protected. One of the Alpacas Stitch Markers is kind of falling apart.

Well here it is all folded up and taking care of your precious needles, hooks, scissors et all. This will definitely be a great gift. I did not use any pattern, I created my own pattern. It is about 16.5 inches width and about 24 length, a very nice and respectable size.

Well now I think I will be taking a little break for a bit and the next time you see me quilting stuff, I believe I will be quilting Placemats and maybe make a cushion. It pays to know your sewing machine for you and I have gotten to know mine a lot more this weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
