I made this case for a Flickr friend of mine. She always sends me nice fabric, cute buttons, and other what nots and our last swap we did she made little barettes for my girls.
Well, such as myself, she loves to knit (amongst other crafty endeavors) so I made a knitting needle case as a surprise for her. I told her she was getting something and to keep an eye out for her mail but I didn't give one clue as to what is was going to be.
Both the fabrics our from Walmart and I'm because the paisley print one is out of stock. (Or at least I haven't seen it at mine).
Here is the case all rolled up with a little fabric flower for embellishment.
Then showing the case opened up with the flap covering so needles don't fall out all over the place.
Opened up all the way to show it holds both long and short needles, gauge guy, stitch holder, circulars and DPNs are placed towards the bottom.
Then it even has a place for stitch markers. The stitch markers shown are ones that I made that I'm also giving her because she loves to knit hats. So I made one stitch marker different from the rest to show where your round begins.
I'm almost tempted to keep it for myself but it's better to give than to receive. I think she'll like it.
Thanks for looking!
ETA: Sorry, forgot to mention that I didn't really go by any exact pattern. I just browsed for a case and took bits and pieces from a few that I've seen and based this one from others. (Thank you all you Craftsters for making nice needle cases, it really helped me out! )
