Simple Crochet Hook Handles



Make a handle for your crochet hooks.
All of the polymer clay covered crochet hooks I created that afternoon.
In this post I will demonstrate how to make a handle for any aluminum or steel crochet hook out of polymer clay.

Sometimes crocheting with a standard hook can make your hands sore. Most hook holders I have seen really don't do much because they are really small or way too big and awkward.  I have thought about buying new hooks with larger grips but I really don't have the money to replace my whole collection of aluminum hooks.

Crochet A Bath Sponge--Free Pattern

Crochet an easy bathroom accessory!

I have been looking for ways to replace some of my plastic items around the house that need to be purchased on a regular basis. When I saw this bath sponge over at Ravelry.com, I knew I had to try my hand a crocheting this awesome pattern. It came out perfect and I couldn't be happier with the results.

 I can't wait to try this out in my shower later this evening. I will make sure to give everyone an update on how much I enjoyed this amazing pattern.

After my shower...

I have used this bath sponge multiple times now and it exfoliates my skin like nothing else out there. I absolutely adore it and I don't know what I would do without it. I used a variation of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn to complete my scrubby but I am not completely sure what the color variation I used was.

 My only complaint is the amount of time it takes this sponge to dry. I think I need to make a bunch more so I don't have to wait for this one to go through the wash each week before I can use it again.
