I used ribbon to make a crochet hook holder. I know, I know... it IS awesome.
So, I have all sorts of crochet hooks. And a handy little pouch to house them. Only see, the pouch is not actually holding all my hooks. The little loops that they go through are only pretend apparently, since half of my hooks won't fit in them. Bummer-sauce.
As you can see, something had to be done. It was truly a crochet hook crisis up in this hizzy.
I took a length of ribbon and pinned it around each of my hooks (in order of size, of course) and pinned it in place.
Yes, I do need a manicure, thanks for noticing. Please send all complimentary manicure gift cards to my home address, thankyousomuch.
Then, they were all pinned:
After that, I sewed up near the pin. I had to take out the hooks for this part, but whatevs... I still pulled it off.
This ribbon is intended to let me hang my hooks on the inside of my crafting cabinet. Yes, I have a crafting cabinet. Her name is Bernice.
I used Command Picture Hanging Strips to put the ribbon on the door. Those strips are so amazing, there are no words. OK, there are words: amazing. Also, awesome.
Done and done. Here are my hooks, hanging happily in their little cabinet:
