SnB: Knitting Needles Case
A girlfriend of mine and I spend Tuesdays doing "craft night" while watching Gilmore Girls. This was our most recent project. It's the knitting needle case from Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch. After the boyfriend stepped on one of my bamboo needles last week, I freaked out a little and decided that I needed more organization.
I went to Hancock's Fabrics and picked up some really funky upholstery fabric on sale for about $6 a yard. It's bright, loud and totally me. I fell in love with it. Funny thing is that my friend picked out the most delicate, feminine and country fabric. We are total opposites in that respect.
Because the fabric was so wide, I was able to make a second case! I love happy surprises like that. So, I sewed up a second one and I'm going to gift it to a friend of mine who helped me get started knitting. All the colors are the same, execpt hers has the pocket holder fabric as the squares, and the background as the polka dots.
