I found an easy tutorial on making a crochet hook holder from here.
I followed the pattern mostly but added my personal touch. I used black beads and different sized white buttons for the eyes. I also wanted to try out a crocheting technique of making a curlycue. So he ended up with curly hair.
He's a little full right now.

I think it turned out pretty cute. What do you think?
