I have lately been on the lookout for vhs tapes with super hard, 'video-rental'-type cases. I wanted to make a hard sided tool case for holding pointy scissors, and sharp needles, since I'm finding that since I started this blog, I have been carrying my crochet with me everywhere! In fact, the other day I almost sheared through the side of the nylon Work-In-Progress bag with my little scissors, which made me think that enough is enough. Time to bite the bullet and make a case for my dangerous work implements.
My intention was to make a crochet lining, with a flap for holding my crochet hooks, but I was so inspired by the movie that had been inside this case, that I opted to go for something a little more fun.
The large tentacle is open on the bottom, so that I can use it for hook storage if I need to. The smaller tentacles could hold yarn needles, if I need them to. Once the tentacles fold inside the case, there isn't a whole lot of room for much more than a hook, a yarn needle and a pair of scissors. Ah, but it's worth it for the tentacled fun in public...
Besides, if I want to make a case to hold the rest of my supplies, I'll use one of the other awesome cases I found... I'm always up for some Sesame Street fun!
