A Place for Everything

My latest finished project, finished in two nights, the ultimate crochet hook and tools organizer!  A few years ago I made a small organizer for my crochet hooks, sewing needles, scissors, etc.  I have used the heck out of it, but I just was never big enough or really the best at organizing.  After browsing online for some ideas to make a new one, I came up with this...see picture below.

For the cover, to make it a stiffer fabric, I used two yarns held together.  One was a solid blue and the other a multicolor.  I also used a smaller hook than a yarn gauge would tell suggest.  Once open, everything is neatly displayed with it's own spot....look how nicely everything sits.

A place for everything!  I really love how each hook has it's own spot and can be arranged in order of size(the other organizer did not do this). 

Some cool features:  Inside the pocket with the star button is my measuring tape.  I have hid my sewing needled under the yarn needles.  The felt under the circle holding the yarn needles is where they hide.  I did this because sewing needles are small and can get lost or move if not protected. 

This organizer will be with me for a long time, although I still may use the old one for a traveling case.
