I CAN Crochet!

can crochet! I really can!! See??? I didn't think about taking pictures of the process... so you'll just have to believe me that I did crochet this all by myself! ALL By Myself!! *I tend to crochet better IF I don't have a pattern to follow and I just make it up as I go... and felting it?!! What a life saver!! LOL This way nobody can ever tell that my half double crotchet's might actually be doubles, or triples... or ...

Boy Wonder needed a case for his tuner and guitar picks!! So I picked up an H hook and some Lion Brand Wool and went to town!
Now it just needs a button hole & of course a button!
Who says you can't felt in a front loader? LOL ! You just have to be careful when you open the door!
I crocheted this using some leftover wool (I think I crocheted & felted a Nook holder for Big) and an H crochet hook. I just made a simple little purse like thing that was about 2 times bigger than the tuner. I did half-double crochets into the initial chain and just kept going around and around in sort of a tube. Or at least I think I made half doubles... When I thought I had enough of a pocket made, I just went back and forth on one of the sides to make the flap. Threw the whole thing into the washer on sanitize (super mega hot!) and let it go for a little while! I kept pausing the washer so I could check on it and when I thought it had shrunk enough, I pulled it out!!
I think it's great and Boy is pretty happy with it too. He's planning on spending some time with the bucket o' buttons later on today to find just the right one!
