A Case of Her Own


Can you imagine having to run to your neighbor's house to borrow a pot every time you wanted to cook soup? Me, either. That's why I made Abigail her own crochet hook case. It's so much more fun to work on projects when you have your own tools! She's been diligently picking up her hook and yarn lately, and I thought that deserved a little reward.



I went to my fabric stash and found the perfect candy-inspired fabric in colors that shout, "Abigail!"


And once it was all stitched up, I proceeded to fill it with goodies.

That case is so cute! I'm sure she just loves it to pieces! :D

Kind of off subject, but where do you buy your fabric?

Tracy said...

HannaBeth,
I buy fabric at an assortment of places: Walmart, quilt stores, Hobby Lobby, Joann's and Hancock. It just depends where I am. I also have a LOAD of fabric that I inherited from my dad's mom.
