Crochet Needle Pouch

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well I had a fabulous crafting day with Kath.

We spend the day making a pouch for our crocheting hooks/needles.

This is my first ever project using a sewing machine and I am over the moon with the finished article.
It isn't perfect by any means but with Kath's fabulous help I created something that will be very handy as you all know I love to crochet my own flowers, doilies etc.


A Flap to cover the needles/hooks and a pocket for scissors etc.


You can see I have opened the flap, so chuffed as I actually sewed straight lines!


Another view showing the pocket.


Used lace to tie together as a roll.
