It has 68 lovely projects, and when I saw this litl crochet hook case, I made it straight away! Love it, its so small and handy. Instead of suggested purple, I picked Limy green. (froggly green :)
This is how it opens:
And my Froggy is in love with this case, she thinking to make it her lilt house :)))

Also in this post I would like to share this lovely pattern with you, my dear readers and guests:

Round 1 1ch, 9dc into ring, ss ro 1st ch made.
Round 2 1ch, (2dc into next dc, 1dc into next dc) 4 times, 2dc into next dc, ss to 1st ch made [14 sts]
Round 3 1ch, 1dc into each dc to end, ss to 1st ch made.

Darn ends in.
Fit lid over openning of base with a 1.5cm overlap. Find the point opposite to the loop and stitch the lid to the base working 3cm of stitching either side of centre back point.
Sew a button of your choice to the base where the loop lies.

Happy crafting everyone,
