Dewdrops beaded pencil case 

February’s project is all about the subtle beauty of beads. When I discovered this really simple way to add beads to crochet I was so excited I had to create a project to share it with you...

The dewdrops case uses a calming base colour, gentle greens and a little glitter of gold to create a case big enough to hold your hooks, pencils and other crafting bits. You know how I love a useful project. 

Already have the pattern and ready to make?

What’s in my box? 

February's box includes...

  • 2 x 50g balls of cotton yarn
  • 1 x cotton zipper pencil case
  • 2 x crochet hooks
  • 2 x packs of beads 
  • 3 x crochet sayings pencils 
  • 1 x reel of thread 
  • 1 x pack of easy-thread needles 
  • The printed pattern with step-by-step photos
  • A video tutorial link

 

As ever, I'll include a printed pattern, step by step photographs and a video tutorial, so no matter how you like to learn - I've got you covered!

What techniques will we be using?

The stitch pattern used to create the Dewdrops case is a beautifully simple one. We'll add the beads as we go using a clever technique (no pre-threading the yarn needed) and work the case flat in rows. It will then be attached to the cotton pencil case with a basic running stitches, avoiding having to sew in a tricky zip! Phew!
