I'm the most disorganized person ever...except when it comes to putting things in my knitting bag.  So I decided to make rolls to hold my straight needles and crochet hooks so that I could take them with me without having a bit of an OCD fit cause of clutter Smiley  Only I couldn't decide on which fabrics I liked the best so I ended up making way more than I could logically use.  

These are pics of the very first one I ever made: hamburgers and fries!  (I have a thing for stuff that either looks like food but isn't or has pictures of food on it.  I dunno, I'm a bit odd...)

This is the roll itself.

And the inside...

And the main print!  

So yeah, this is my latest craft project and I'm pretty pleased with the results:)   Anyway, thanks for looking! Comments would be much appreciated:)

Thanks guys!

Actually, I didn't really use a pattern so there isn't one I can really point you guys to.  Basically I just measured the needles I wanted to carry around and then went from there.  After a bit of trial and error as far as attaching the closure and whatnot I had my rolls!  Hardest part was seaming all the individual needle slots Smiley

Wow, you did a great job!  I made one from a pattern in Stitch and Bitch book, and yeah I agree that the individual needle cases are time consuming.   Grin
