#Handmade - Hook case

I finally made my a hook case :-)
Just for my favorite hooks and notions so they are not scattered on my bedside table and I spend less time searching ;-)
Can you believe some of those Boyds cost as little as 29 cents?!

#Handmade - Face scrub pad

Finished pad after 36st of hdc, it's big enough at ~2"
Total pad size ~3"

I'm not good at math, but did 2 patches now and come to 18 st in round 3, not 24.
It might be me, not having enough coffee though ;-)

I just increased in my next / last row in almost every stitch and came to 36 and called it a day.

Works as well :-)

I also switched to a chain 2, instead of ch1 at the beginning of each round.

I didn't break the yarn after finishing the second patch.
Instead I put together the two patches on the wrong side, chain 1 and slip st together the two adjoining inner loops of each last stitch (see photo).

Leave enough of an opening for two fingers & finish off :-)
