For crochet on the move
I have recently taken up crochet and am really enjoying it! So I bought a set of hooks but they came in this horrible plastic case, so I decided to make a nice fabric one.
I really like working with tartan print materials as they already have a nicely marked out grid that really helps when measuring and cutting.
Top tip: If you have a cat then let them get into at least one of your photos . It makes them feel as if they are “helping” and keeps a grumpy mood at bay.
