Ok so I really needed something to hold my knitting needles and crochet hooks cause every time I went to find one it would take me forever to locate it in my wip bag or where never.

So I made this! It's not perfect, for some reason it's kinda lop sided, this is what i get for actually trying to iron down my sides to make them straight, never again will i do this Tongue

Here are some pics.

All rolled up!

front (outside) as you can see it's kinda crooked  Undecided oh well! You;d think I've never sewn before Tongue

The pocket you see to the far right is for a needle book, which i am in the process of making! and the other pocket of the same size is for a sketch book, I like to sketch out what I am makinging before I make it.. unless I have an actual pattern.

What do u think?

Ohhh, it's really nice!
I made one too recently. How did you managed the edges? It looks like you sewn it right side to right side and then turned it. Is that right.
And how is it held together?

yup it was sewn like a pillow, right side to right side, but I sewed the 3 pieces of fabric for the inner part together first then sewed it right side to right side.

I'll make a little diagram if you like. It's really quite easy. I drew on the lines to where I want the little pockets to be with a pencil before I stitched it aswell.

Thank you!
How kind of you to make a description. And it is very clear too.
I'll use that method the next time.
