new project

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Joann's was having a sale on cotton fabric this week, so I picked out a few different patterns and came up with this knitting needle case. I based it off of some similar cases that I had seen online here and here. As with all of my projects without a pattern, there was much trial and error with this project. I bet that if I actually thought things through and made a plan before cutting and sewing the fabric, I'd finish a lot sooner and have a better outcome, but planning takes too long when I'm in "the zone." Well, at least next time I'll know what to do differently!

Here is the final project.


It's got 13 spots for needles each up to 15" long.


The top folds over...


then once it's rolled,


there is a ribbon to tie it with in the middle.
