Today's blog post continues with my love of crocheting, although the post is not about crocheting! Several years ago, I made a storage roll for my jewellery pliers. I love this roll so much, and it has helped to improve my tidiness and organisation. So with lots of crochet hooks rolling around various tabletops in my home, I decided it was high time I made a storage roll for them.
The design of this storage roll is similar to the other one, with the exception that I predominantly used felt for this project. This meant a few alterations were needed to my general pattern, but I am pretty happy with the result. My favourite part has to be the outside of the roll, which I embellished with a vintage embroidered doily. The borders of orange and blue flowers were part of the original doily design, which I added to by embroidering a crinoline lady adapted from a pattern in Jane Brocket's The Gentle Art of Stitching. The helpful, but slightly annoying, part of having all my crochet hooks in one place? I've discovered that I am missing one hook, which also happens to be one of my favourite sizes to use, oh dear!
