I've been searching for a needle holder for all my double points for a looong time, but everything I saw was either not quite right, or too expensive. So I finally got off my butt and made my own. I found one I liked online, "studied" the picture, and voila!  The inside is black fabric so it might be hard to see all the pockets. I also left an opening for a ribbon tie but I put it on the wrong flap and didn't notice until everything was done. I'll probably just add a couple snaps instead. 

I've got an idea for a circular needle holder, similar to this one. If only I could find decent fabric locally. walmart and Joanns (my only local fabric shops) just aren't cutting it.


Here it is closed.


First fold, like a book.


Unfold like a book again, and here's the top flap to hold things in.


Lift flap and we have needles! All of my double points.



And here's  a close up so you can see both row of pockets.



And yes those are my feet in the picture. I had to stand on the chair to get the whole holder in the frame. Thanks for looking!

I made a needle holder for inside my knitting bag.



I just sewed elastic onto the lining of the bag, just big enough for each size needle to fit snuggly in. I also added a pocket over top of the needle holder. I will post pictures of that, and a pattern for the entire bag, later on my website: http://stitch.kittytime.net/.
