Crochet Caddy - Double

Finally I managed to make a crochet hook caddy. I've used the amazing pattern by Crochet Cafe. But because I have been shopping online lately, I now have a big bunch of hooks, so I made the pattern double.

Basically I followed the instructions given in the Crochet Cafe pattern, but instead of making the front flap I started another crochet caddy, upside down.

And here it is! It's a bit bigger that I thought, and it's not something that you can carry with you. So I'm thinking of making a smaller version, single folded, to carry just 4 hooks. You know, for traveling. Anyway this caddy certainly brought a bit of order in my messy crochet stuff.

Thanks Sue, The terrier is progressing... I've been busy trying to knit an Aran Pillow Cover (I've did it and undid it three times already, argh!), but soon I'll come back to the amigurumi :-)
The 200 blocks are fantastic! I hope one day I'll be able to achieve a beautiful project like your "grandmother's flower garden"!!
