Awesome job!


I am looking for a way to carry my drawing pencils to and from class... do you think this would work?

besides making it taller for the pencils are there any other modifications you can think of that I would need to do?

Knitting needles are pretty long, so I don't think you would need to make it taller.  If anything, you might have to make them shorter!  You should make the pockets more narrow, though.  If you do that, you can omit the flap.  The pockets have to be a little wide for the needles, because you have to accomodate different sizes.  Pencils are all pretty much the same width, so you can make the pockets tighter.  You could also make a wide pocket for a ruler or erasers.

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

I made a very similar roll-up, but for drum sticks.
making sure that you are careful about sewing the corners, trimming enough, and pressing the fabric, these turn out really well
yours is simply beautiful!

Arigatou, smooshyknit!

(Since it was a Japanese inspired project, I figured it could do with a bit of Nihon-go!)

This was the PERFECT gift to make for my knitting friend for her birthday.... which was.... erm.... last December. Oops! (I had a 4-month-old baby at home, OK?? Smiley )

I am the world's worst photographer, so please bear with the crappy images.

Open with the flap down:



Open with the flap up:



Rolled up:



Close-up of the "obi":



I think the flap needed to be a bit longer, and the channels for the needles a bit narrower (I made mine 1.5"), but on the whole, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!

Oh and I used denim for the outside, and some upholstery sample fabric for the inside.

I also think the pocket could have been embellished a tad more. But hey - it was my first one.

Thanks again!

Sorry it took so long for me to reply, but the snapped strap is a stitch marker holder.  It easily comes open to load and unload stitch markers, plus it comes off completely, if you want to take your stitch marker holder with you.

sweetpea74, your roll looks gorgeous!

Thank you all for such wonderful comments!
