I always loved the Mrs. Poppins Pocket by WoolyBully (http://www.woolybully.com/poppins.php), but hated the $150 price tag (http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_132&products_id=717).

So while the husband is underway (USCG), I decided to make my own.  This is the test model, I used $2/yard fabric.  Now that I know what to do and what needs to be done, I'm going to make the nice, tapestry fabric version.  Pretty happy with how it turned out... and it only cost me $5 (for this one).

I love the fabric you used! It's amazing how much money places charge for stuff like that. I mean I could see $50, but $150? Crazy. Anyway, I really like it, it's a great idea for storing mostly-flat supplies.

That's so fantastic! I have so many needles and no needle holder... I wish I could sew now. Sad  I adore your skull knitting needles also. Did you make those? If not... where do you find things like that? Smiley

Thanks to everyone.  As for the skull needles, they were a gift.  You can get them here:  http://www.punkknits.com/

And yes, there is no way I could justify paying $150 plus shipping for a Mrs. Poppins Pocket.  The material that I would like to use is about $10/yard.  I'd like to make it bigger, so I'll use 3 yards, plus thread, so I'll end up spending $35, 'round about.  So I can see charging $60-70 MAX... but they're also getting their fabric wholesale, sooo... yeah.

Wow that's awesome! I like yours better than the original, actually. Somehow from the pictures it seems like it has more pockets? Anyway this is very inspiring...

Yes, I added a lot more pockets, such as the needle pouches for my straights, dpns, and circulars.  There are also two big pouches for scissors, yarn, notions, etc.  I wanted it to store just about anything and everything for my knitting.

Oh I love it! Yours looks way better than the original.
I would really like to make one too, but first I have to find a piece of free wall to hang it on... Tongue

I like your version of it much better.  Your fabric is better and you have more pockets for needles!  Stupid question... how do you hang it on the door??  Or am I seeing things and it's not really on the door?

In the finished, pretty Poppin Pocket, it will be held up with a rod and cording, like the original by Wooly Bully.  But for test purposes, I just put it up on my bedroom door with two thumb tacks.  Tee hee.
