I just added my tutorials onto my blog if your interested http://www.moosieknits.blogspot.com
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '........................................................................')
So like many I wasnt sure where to post this, since its partially sewn, but it is all knitting related so I hope I posted it correctly

This is a little set I worked on for my sister's birthday, Ive been working on making needles for a little while now and only just started making markers and I LOVE them, so quick and easy to make, and well I had to make a holder for it all.

I got the fabric at Joanns a month or so ago and havent done anything with it so here is my first FO with the fabric. 

I looked up numerous tutorials on making stitch markers and found these to be the best

and after many attempts at perfecting the homemade knitting needle, I think I have found a way to make them most efficiently.

I had so much fun putting this together, there are two slots in the holder so I plan to make her another set of needles

Thanks for looking!!! I always look forward to feeback  Cheesy

That is such a wonderful birthday gift! Could you post a link to the stitchmarker tutorial?  I always like to make new stitchmarkers and I've been struggling with mine breaking all the time.

Thanks for the great comments, Im so excited I cant wait to mail it out to her, I know she will love it!!

Coral... I searched many sites on making stitch markers and used tips from all of them, even made a few crazy looking ones on my own, but the best one I saw was here .... http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000201.html

buying the head pins seemed to be the easiest way rather than buying wire and cutting it like I started to do

my first crazy ones, but I did use them while knitting and no snags surprisingly, also my pliers didnt close all the way and had ridges so that made it very difficult

and after buying head pins and new pliers, no ridges, and having the round ended pliers along with flat ones makes all the difference
