I'm really not sure if this is supposed to go in this board or not but it seemed logical to me. I made this case over the weekend. I got the pattern from http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/knitting_needle_roll_up/
The yellow fabric has little bumble bees in it. My sewing skills aren't the greatest considering I just learned how to use a machine the week before, but I love it.

That's cute, nice job!
Could you maybe take another picture so we can see the details in the fabric?

What a neat website!  That's the kind of help I need with sewing.  I love your roll-up.  Now I'll have to make one!

I really like the yellow (gold?) stitching.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Wow thank you so much everyone for your kind words!

Thecoffindontwantme - Of course, as soon as I get home and find the good camera. The one I have at work isn't being kind and I suck at photography so instead of seeing one big bright blog, I'll wait until later to post the detailed pic.

photojenn - The colors are actually black & yellow but hopefully the pic to come will truly show that.

crocodisle - It's yellow. Pretty much like a craftster yellow lol  Cheesy

Nice.  Your sewing skills are the same as mine...awesome! ... for a newb. Ha ha... I've been making these needle rolls as stock piled gifts for any knitter I run across in the future.  Your roll turned out great!

I like the bees Smiley

I know! Aren't the bees just the greatest little things in the world?

Thanks spurtiic. I'm such a huge annoying perfectionist so it takes me forever to get anything done and then I'm annoyed at the finished product. Exactly why I had to have the ladies at the shop where I bought my machine teach me how to sew. My mom said I made her crazy and she couldn't do it! lol They are soo easy to make though. Too bad I don't know a crap load of knitters or I'd be stock piling too!

Thanks again everyone!

kitschkween - Seriously! I don't make big purchases often so when I do I become some sort of weird materialistic psycho towards those items. lol I swear I'm probably going to get the "you've neglected us for a piece of equipment" speech from my friends and family soon.  Undecided My machine and I will just have to schedule time apart for them!   

wintervalentine - Actually I got the fabric at a quilt show and I have no idea what the company was called. Sorry dear, but I did Google it and apparently it's a Mary Englebreit Fabric called Bee's on Yellow. Hope that helps.  Smiley
