    Hi, Love the holder! I think I will make a holder for my daughter’s crochet hooks. She will love it – then she will want a brush holder as well. Thank you so much! I always look forward to seeing what you will create!

    just one question-what about sewing the opening shut after turning it right side out? Do you hand or machine stitch that? I didn’t notice it mentioned in the video.

    Great project for gift giving.

    This is absolutely an awesome project to do.

  • December 5, 2011 at 11:57 am

    Love, Love, Love it! It isn’t often that I’m inspired enough by something I see on the internet to go & make it, but I have made almost EVERY project you girls have made every season! This would be a great gift for my girlfriends, so I will be making them soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • December 5, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Oh… I saw Gale’s question above and it reminded me…. why not leave the opening where you are going to put the ribbon? That way you can just add a stitched edge all the way around, sewing the ribbon in the opening as you go. I think I will try that…. I may not add the ricrac though, so this will give a different type of finished edge. I also have a friend who likes flannel and country style decor, so I might add a blanket stitch around the edges.

    Really good idea and it would be good for crochet hooks, and maybe a little bit wider cut for knitting needles too. Another great one girls!

    Hi, I love watching these projects come together! I have ADHD and it is nearly impossible for me to read and comprehend directions and I absolutely CANNOT read a pattern. Literally, the only way I am able to sew and learn new projects is by either seeing a finished project, disecting it and hoping for the best, or with your VERY helpful and step by step instructions! Sewing has enabled me to maintain a sense of self and much needed outlet for creativity. The two of you have inspired me to keep sewing and given me so many new fun ideas and your fun, positive attitudes have made for an ease of watching and a center for my attention.

    I can see this used for many things. One being for a wedding or shower gift filled with forks, spoons, knives, ect…. I think I may make one for my markers for crafting.
    Thanks for the idea.

    another option for the closure……an elastic loop that will fit around your roll. we decided to use that instead of a ribbon tie or even velcro for little ones who cannot tie a bow yet.

  • December 16, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    another great idea for quick gifts. In designing these one could make them just any size needed for quilting and sewing tools as well as crochet needles and taller ones for knitting needles. Humm may need to make some for mother’s day gifts. thanks again for these great ideas.

    I believe after she turned it inside out she did a decorative stitch around entire piece, and this sealed the opening…no hand stitching needed. I might be wrong, but that is what I plan to do.

    May I just say what a relief to uncover somebody that genuinely
    understands what they are discussing on the web. You actually know how
    to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should look at this and understand this side of
    your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

    Newer technologies and advanced tools have made it possible for cosmetic surgeons to
    carry out the highly delicate surgical procedures with more
    confidence and mitigated risk factors. This means that you can have layers of images one over the
    other, and each level can have its own set of
