I starters working on a crochet hook case this week. I went to visit my cousin last week and she showed me the projects she had been working on. One of them she completed was this case for crochet hooks. I loved it so she showed me where the pattern was. Mine is almost done. I'll post pictures when finished. Here is where to find the pattern. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aluminum-crochet-hook-case

Restringing Effanbee dolls is fairly easy. I have done a few. You can buy bands and hooks from most any doll supply or you can buy restringing cord. Here are dolls I have done before and after pictures.
I restrung 2 of these 14" Patsy Dolls. They have their original clothes but I will sew them new outfits for display. The next one is Wee Patsy 5". I restrung her using elastic string.
Until next time May God Bless.
