This project took me a very long time to complete. I had worked this with 2 strands of Omega mercerized thread and a small hook (size 3) because the case had to be stiff & sturdy. And it was a lot of strain on my hand. This was one of my most frustrating projects. Why? Maybe coz it was too simple?! Anyway, even after multiple froggings & frustrations... it turned out quite ok! The pansy turned out really beautiful. The pattern can be found on crochet-mania. I didn't follow the pattern completely. Did modify it a little bit.
