So, I bought this green fabric on a whim, just because I liked it. That was months ago. I finally decided to use it for a knitting needle roll for a friend, and started cutting everything out... and then found out that I didn't buy enough for the pattern! Oops! So, I dug around and found some white lining cotton and some neutral cotton and figured that would work... I hope it looks like I planned it that way! If I had been thinking, I would have bought a coordinating print and used that, but no, I wasn't thinking...lol

Anyways, here it is!
I used this tutorial: http://alexandrasknits.blogspot.com/2006/01/tutorial-alexandras-needle-case.html  the only thing I did differently is add quilt batting.

It can be rolled up like this or folded into thirds.

green print wasn't wide enough so I split it and added the solid strip Wink

Handy flap so needles don't fall out...

Just because I like close-ups Smiley
Unfortunately, I'm not a knitter myself, so I didn't have any needles or anything for an "in use" shot. It's pretty big though, and looks like it will hold a lot!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

No one would know that you ran out of that nice green fabric. With the way you incorporated the solid fabrics, it looks intentional. Now you have to learn how to knit so you can make another one for yourself.
