The big SIL is a crafty person, specifically an incredibly talented knitter, and I really wanted to craft her something useful with this in mind.  I was REALLY tempted to make those resin needles, but having never tried ti before I didn't want to spend time on something that might go horribly wrong. 

I've seen some gorgeous needlerolls on here and, after seeing Urban Threads' embroidery of a stitchy witch on a broomstick I HAD to use it.

Dafty that I am though, I bought the pattern... only to remember I didn't have any transfer paper!  So I redrew it in my own little way.

Here is my attempt to do something similar in stitchery

The full roll (the top section folds down to cover the needles a bit)

Simple closure... ribbon wound around a cute button.

YAY!  The needles fit!  I was convinced it would turn out an inch too short or something.

All rolled up!

C+C welcome.  I am always looking to improve!

I finally have a wist!
