A few weeks ago I shared this handmade gift over at Riley Blake Designs, but today I am bringing it home…..
Here’s the story behind it. I was recently helping my mom clean out her craft room and we kept finding loose crochet hooks around the place…..one here, one there and quite a few more in her crochet basket. And an idea was born. She was in desperate need of a crochet cozy!
I used just under a half-yard of fabric and it took about 1 hour to make—which is just the kind of sewing I love.
Here is what you will need if you want to make one….
And here are the easy directions…..
Here is what a walking foot looks like in case you were wondering. And you might also be wondering if you absolutely need a walking foot to topstitch—and the answer is no. It just makes things a bit easier because of the 3 or 4 layers of fabric that you are sewing through. If you aren’t using a walking foot, I would up your stitch length a bit to help the layers go through your machine a bit easier.
All you have left is to clip your seams and you are done! And the sparkle cotton looks so pretty up close and in person….it’s darling.
