Rollie Pollie

I saw this beautiful knitting needle case on Pink Lemon Twist and decided to make one for myself. I used some leftover fabric from the baby quilt I'm making (yes, the top is finished, one thing at a time). I figured things out as I went along and the main thing I forgot was to sew the lines for the pockets before sewing the main pieces together so it wouldn't show on the outside of the roll. I need to write down how I made it before I forget because I'll definitely be making more. It holds all of my needles perfectly! I made the pockets 1 1/2" wide which I think is a little too wide for the tiny DPNs. I could have made the overall width a little less. Also, I think the pockets are slightly too deep and the top flap needs to be a little bit longer to cover the tops of my shorter needles. And if you look closely you can see the pink embroidery stitch I used, fancy, huh? Thank you mom, I love the machine! Not only did she buy me the new Pfaff quilting machine, she also gave me her old Pfaff Creative 1475 sewing machine. I'm having so much fun!

That thing is great! Time to make another prototype, for me I think! Then open an Etsy shop! =)

I'm jealous of your fancy machines. Wish mine would do fancy stitchwork like that! Very cute needle roll.
