I retired and have to keep busy, so I crochet, knit, and embroider. I was always looking for my scissors, or crochet hook.
I crocheted a 12 inch granny square out of leftover yard. I folded it in half, and closed the ends, forming a big pocket. I angled the empty roll from toilet tissue (close to 45 degrees) in the center, and stitched on both sides so it would remain angled.
I fastened this to the arm of my chair, just tied it on, so it would not slip. Fasten it so the angled tube will hold your scissors so you can easily grab them and return them. When my crochet hooks are not in use, I stick them in the crocheted part in front of the scissors.
Now I don't have to wonder where I left scissors or hooks.

Hi! This sounds like a good idea. Could you please post any pics? Thanks
Excellent idea! I never would have thought to angle the toilet paper roll. Thanks!
I have done the same. But I make a small tube on a lanyard and keep my hook in that, then use one of those tiny folding scissors or a small nail clipper to snip yarn.
We are a clever bunch aren't we?
