So, I made this for my sister!  We both knit, as does our mom.  I made my mom a needle roll 2 Christmases ago and have planned to make one for my sister ever since, but just never got around to it.  Anyway, I used this tutorial that my friend made for me.  See, my friend originally made me a needle roll and I wanted to make one for my mom but I suck at figuring out how to sew things on my own so she made me a little tutorial.  Which I subsequently posted on the post for the needle roll I made my mom and that's here in case anyone else wants to make a needle roll.  I posted the other one on the knitting board but it makes more sense to post it here, I think.  After all, needles rolls fit into the "stuff to carry other stuff" category.  Ok, enough rambling.  Here's the inside with some of my knitting/crochet stuff in the pockets:



A little closer up:



And here's the little label I made.  My sister's name is Phoebe and I frequently call her Pheebs.  I just wrote out Pheebs on some freezer paper and made a little stencil out of that and then used it as a guide to hand embroider on the same ribbon I used for the needle roll.  Oh, I fused some interfacing to the ribbon first.  And then, like a douchebag, I forgot to sew the label down before I put the whole shebang together so I had to hand sew that on and be mindful of going through only the top layer of fabric Roll Eyes.



Here's the flap folded down so you can see a bit of the outer fabric:



And, finally, here it is all rolled up and tied:



I hope she likes it!  My husband picked out the fabrics and I think he did an excellent job Grin

That is really cute and thoughtful.  I think your sister will love it.  I love it.  And I don't even know how to knit.

I've had this bookmarked for some time and I'm getting my sewing machine soon and am SO EXCITED to use your pattern to make my own!  It will be my first sewing project.  My sister has already recruited me into having to make one for her crochet hooks too.

You did a great job!

She will love it.  I love the personalised name, it makes it that much more special. Cheesy
