Bits and bobs.

Today I'm showing you the little covers I've made for my scissors and tiny crochet hook. Not the best sewing I've ever done but that's no problem as these are made just for the trip and will probably be lost afterwards.  Although, having thought again about what I've just written - probably not as putting the covers on these two items will stop me from a) losing them (particularly the hook) and b) sitting on them and having a 'nasty surprise' in my bum!!!

Since taking these pictures I've added a loop to the scissor one and a piece of chain (in case I want to take it apart!!!). Also made another hook cover too as I wasn't too happy with this first one. I've used the little plastic cover that came with the hook and have glued it into the fabric which surrounds it. 

Well if nothing else - it kept me out of mischief for an hour or two!!!

Yes, hook and scissors are not something you want in your nether regions!

Don't take them onto the plane by mistake! - I once had to pay a LOT of money to send my favourite scissors as hand luggage after I had forgotten they were still in my handbag - couldn't bear to lose them. I had to check in my carry on bag, and only after the plane took off did I realise that all my medication was in that bag. So now I'm super-careful about things.

I take a Clover cutter with me, Maureen and my 'not so favourite' shuttles just in case. Nick once 'lost' his favourite scissors in just the same way you did. Thanks for reminding me, though. You're a good mate.

I think your little covers are adorable!

Another idea for hooks is to 'reuse' the bit of plastic tube that comes in some perfume bottles.... it's thin enough to go round the hook and could be glued in the same way!!! Loves the idea of these.... guess what I'm going to do!! VBG

Perfume? What's that?
