In About an Hour...

I made this!

What is it, you ask? Well, it is a case for all my knitting needles. I had seen some on Etsy, but boy were they pricey.

Using leftover fabric from other projects, I put this together. I made two rows of pockets for needles and some larger ones for other notions I frequently need while knitting.
I left enough fabric at the top to fold down so the needles won't fall out when it is rolled up.

You could organize them in any fashion, but I sorted according to size. I like being able to lay my hands on the needed size quickly.


I am no seamstress and it is not perfect. But it is what I wanted and best of all, it was not $42.00. I made it with my own hands. I feel domestic, crafty, and resourceful. And that is good.

  1. Smart to make it tall enough to fold down over your needles. I failed to do that when I made mine.

  3. It looks awesome! I made one a while back, but am going to make another one, like yours, with 2 different heights for my sister-in-law. Isn't this a fun easy project? I love making stuff myself.
