When I found out I was deploying to Iraq for a year the crafster in me wanted to make something appropriate to carry my needles, hooks, and yarn.  I decided to to cut up an old skirt I had make with Star Trek fabric to use for the interior along with constellation fabric that glows in the dark and twill camouflage to match my uniform.

 Both were easy to make (http://www.tostetoes.com/knittingroll.htm and http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/10/hex-open-bag--1.html), however next time I won't make a 15" needle roll for a 14" yarn bag. Smiley

Great needle roll and yarn bag.  I love that they match.  But i must say my favourite part of this is the awesome Star Trek fabric, I definitely have fabric envy.

Thank you for all the compliments.  I found the constellation fabric a few years ago at Joanns (or maybe Walmart) and the Star Trek fabric at Yardage Town.   I miss my sewing machine..... Sad
