Last year I started a crochet club at school, and I had a half dozen kids who came on a regular basis. So, I decided to make them each a zippered pouch to hold their supplies. I decided to make a second mini one to hold stitch markers and yarn needles. I asked them their favorite colors, and planned to send them to them over the summer. While I made them over the summer, I never got them in the mail.
In each bag, I put a dozen stitch markers, a yarn needle, a tape measure, 2 crochet hooks, and right before I gave them out, I added a pair of scissors.
What a nice gift! Cool fabric combinations, too
Thank you! I think they liked them, but Crochet Club hasn’t started this year, so I’ll have to see if they actually use them.
And, I tried to use stash to make them in their favorite colors, but I had to buy a little.
Now, I need to think of something to make for the next batch of regulars!
I LOVE that you started a crochet club. That’s so cool! What lovely little gifts for them!
Very cool crochet-club swag! I’m sure they loved their personalized pouches.
Incredibly sweet and thoughtful for your kids!
How thoughtful and what a considered way to encourage young creators!
How nice of you! And good that you are spreading the crochet along the kids!
These (and your club) are sooo cool! Everyone will want to join this year!
Thank you! I started the club because a former student loved crochet, too, but she rarely made it because of conflicts with band & chorus.
I switched the day this year so hopefully more kids can join.
I’m already brainstorming ideas for next year:
A drawstring bag to hold a bigger project
Handmade stitch markers
Crochet key chains
Any other ideas?
A teacher who truly cares! How your kids must love you!
I would have loved being a part of that club as a teen/pre-teen, esp if it meant getting such wonderful pouches to keep me organized!
and I love the fact that you are fanning the flame of crafting love in each of them!
maybe future LC members
