okay, this is my first post so here goes...
I finally put together a home for all my random needles using the pattern provided in the first stich'n bitch book. I used to same structure and dimensions but finished the edges with bias tape rather than sewing the thing inside out and then inverting it(couldn't wrap my head around something that complicated)

here's a full view

and a slightly blurry closeup

a view of the deeper pockets

and the finished roll

I used some fun flannel that was on sale at joanne's fabric and handstitched the bias tape edges. Enjoy! Smiley

You did a great job! I think the bias tape was a nice touch. I've used bias tape once on some quited fabric, and it was alot more difficult than I imagined! Props to you for hand sewing it, too!

I think your needle roll is especially well designed. Very nice job. Looks great and it looks like it will function very well.

thank you for the replies! Smiley I fell in love with the fabric (I have a thing for both fish and flannel Wink and it was on sale!) I think I'm going to make a smaller case for my crochet hooks to match sometime in the near future.
