I made this for a swap.  Posting this now because I know that she has now received it.  My swap partner wanted a roll up knitting needle holder so I made her this one.





But then I decided to make one for my mother.






Then I decided to make one for my jewelry making tools, plyers and such.





Then I just had to make one to hold my doll making tools.





I made all of these in one weekend.

As always comments appreciated.

Thanks

Those are so beautiful! I love those!
I made a pencil holder like that for my boyfriend, but I've been kind of intimidated of it ever since, 'cause the trimming (edging, ribbon thingies) always attaches unevenly, and I end up sowing outside it and I have to do it over again and... *sigh*
I'm especially jealous of the first one, I love the colors.

And now you're going to make one for me  Tongue
Those are beautiful and functional!  I have to figure out how to make something like that for my jewelry tools and  paintbrushes.

If you interested the instructions for making the first knitting needle case.  I found them here.
http://webdesignsbybarb.com/tostetoes/ .  You need to scroll down.


The others are variations of the first one.  They have fold down tops and different pockets for the last two.

My goodness, those are beautiful!  I love the fabrics and they look so well-made.  The last one is my favorite, but I really love them all.  I second Luxe's comment about the paintbrush holder, I would be grateful for a simple tutorial.

I know how time consuming a tute can be, if you can manage it then awesome, if not then no problemmo!  I can't believe you cracked those out in a single weekend.  I assume it's marginally easy to customize as far as the slots go.  I also love your color combinations.  Very rich!  And also your ribbons are decadent.  Talent AND class.  You have it all!

"I can't stop making these"  caught my eye.  Gawd, there are so many of those for me.  I can't stop making jackets and bags and pillowcases, and scarves and aprons, oh the aprons!  LOL  Your things are so yummy.  I have made bags like those for, believe it or not, my daughter's Barbies!  Wish I had pics to show you.  Just make the "pockets" big enough for Barbie, and roll em up.  The ones I've made fit 7 Barbies, I think.  I also made them for, cough, Beanie Babies.  Nice work...keep it up Smiley
