    Default Crochet Hook Organizer for hairsticks storage

    Does anyone use a Crochet Hook Organizer for hair sticks storage? I remember seeing some folks talk about it on the old boards, but I don't remember who. I also remember someone got given one on a gift swap, so I thought that I would ask for those who might use one, do they work well?

    I need to use something when I travel and such and wanted to know if this would work like I think or if they just fall out or what.
    If you use one with hair sticks with toppers do they still work well or do the toppers get misshapen?

    All info would be great: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    So ladies your input would be appreciated.
    TIA

    I had a random idea while looking a Vera Bradley store. Place mats were the only item I can afford. Make hair toy organizer out of a ready made cloth place mat.

    -buy place mat
    -fold in 3rds
    -sew dividers for each toy

    I have not worked out the kinks I will get on the ball and post pics this week when I have time to get the sewing machine out.


    I also noted on LHC about someone using a cloth teaspoon holder from an antique store. I have searched for one with no success.


    Hope this helps

    That sounds like an excellent idea.

    I don't really like hairsticks, but I did sew an organizer roll for my clips and forks to use while traveling.

    Using a placemat to do that, especially a quilted one (aren't all the Vera Bradley things quilted?) would be an excellent and easy way to do this. Attach a folded piece of ribbon to the free end so you can tie it while it's rolled.

    I was the one who made the crochet case, and yes I think it would adapt to hair stick storage. It is http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/kluster/kluster.html

    That's so pretty. I will make one - for my crochet hooks.

    For my hairsticks, I didn't come to a final conclusion yet. I think that laboratory equipment like test tube holders might be a good solution. For now, I keep my hairsticks in glasses with marble sand. But for travels, your bag beats everything else. Thank you for the pattern!

    I have a few pencil holders that I use to hold hairsticks. I've seen some paintbrush and knitting needle cases that would work as well.

    I bought one of these and I love it

    My mom made me a crochet hook saver years ago for my birthday. Maybe I'll re-purpose it for my hairsticks. It had two parallel lines of elastic sewn at intervals to keep the needles together.
    It's a great day for UP!

    I don't like it for beaded hairsticks. It looks like the beads could rub against each other and possibly scuff, or break if it's put in a piece of luggage and ends up at the bottom of a stack of suitcases. Maybe I worry too much, but I would not trust my hairsticks in that for travel.

    I prefer a hard case to protect them. Like a tin pencil case, or a tin stationary box for sticks and forks. Inside that, I would still separate the sticks/forks with either sleeves (a lot of stick/fork makers include a cloth sleeve with new sticks) or plastic sandwich bags. Also be sure the box is full enough that they won't rattle around. Then I don't have to worry about where my suitcase gets packed in the car.

    I am very anal about hair toys not touching each other.
