What makes you decide what to make? Usually I make things because it's someone's birthday or because someone has asked me to make something but I very rarely make anything to keep for myself which is a bit ridiculous when you think about it. After I'd spent rather a lot of time searching through my needlework boxes for a crochet hook it struck me that I hardly ever used most of the needle sizes so today I made myself a needle case for those needles I use most often(and if I ever find my other crochet hook it can live in there too!)The pattern is here if you want to make one.
