For one of my sister's birthday's (back in February) I made her a case for her new hobby. She has recently started to knit and crochet things. Since Christmas she's finished (that I know of), a scarf, a few pairs of baby booties/mittens, and at least one hat.
Rumor had it that she needed a case for her hooks and needles. So I made a giant pencil pouch for her to keep some stuff in. She's a professional tuba player so I lined the inside with some music fabric.
