I'm hoping I'm putting this in the right place, as it's not really a knitting project, per se.  It is, however, a project FOR knitting, so here goes:

I modified the instructions from Dulcinea's tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=139384.0) and used three fat quarters to make this baby.  It's my first sewn FO, and even though it's a little wonky in places (some of the channels for needles are going diagonally, but i'm hoping it looks like it's supposed to be that way Wink), I love it dearly.  oh, and it's missing several needles, but i've got about 5 WIPs, so it looks pretty empty.

Here's the whole thing...



Here's a close-up of the pockets and channels...



And this is the whole thing rolled up (obviously Cheesy)...

This is great, I love turquoise and brown! I've been thinking about making one of these myself, I think you've just given me the extra motivation to do so! Good work!

Ooh I love the double pocket.  I made a needle roll but didn't think about the short dpns and now they get lost in the deep needle pockets.  You have inspired me to try again.

the tutorial i used was hardcore - it had THREE rows of pockets, but i didn't think i'd need that many.  two rows works.  good luck Smiley

when i made up the tutorial, my thought was that the first row was crochet hooks, the middle row was double pointed needles, and the top row for the longer straight needles.
