This is a great holder developed for my handmade knitting needles or any knitting needles you may have. Its great as a gift to give your needles or to use while traveling with your knitting, keep extra needles you may need in this holder while on the go. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6288389

*scrap fabric at least 14 inches x 16.5 inches if using one fabric, or if using separate lining fabric 7 inches x 16.5 inches of each 2 fabrics
*fusible interfacing
*sewing machine and matching thread
*one button of your choice
*elastic tie
*removable fabric marker

Step 1: Cut your fabric

Cut out you fabric, 3.5 inches x 16.5 inches, and 3.5 inches x 10 inches of both fabrics, four pieces total, this gives a seam allowance of 0.5 inch on each side, also cut 2 pieces of iron on interfacing, one of each size

Attach your interfacing (I use iron on) to the back of your main fabric pieces, not the lining pieces
5 Stars! Wonderful idea and very cute fabric patterns! Thanks for sharing!
How long are your needles? I noticed that the holder is too short for a standard sized needle (about 14") Or maybe I did something wrong? When the holder is open it's 16,5", which means it's shorter when you take the flap down to close. I will have to add another piece of fabric to make the flap. Otherwise I think it's a great idea and a great tutorial.
Hello, I've actually never had anyone mention this but you make a great point, I think?? the needles I was using were 10inches, I really don't remember but I'll look at that tonight and can make some revisions for different size needles! this seems to be a popular tute ~ thanks
That would be awesome. I have problemswith fixing my holder to my longer needles. I sewed on an extra piece for the flap, but now it's kind of too long so it flops to the side showing the needleheads. Does that make sense? I don't know how to fix it. I think I'll post it on my blog tomorrow, maybe you can think of a solution? Thanks kamadesign.blogspot.com
I also have this posted on my blog, just so no one else wants to leave rude comments on my blog about copyright violations
I made myself something similar a year or so ago. I liked it so my and accumulated so may knitting needles that I made a second one for myself and one for my mom, too. My first needle holder has five pockets for five sizes of double pointed needles. If I was smart I would embroider the size on the outside of the pocket.
Cool! I've poked countless holes in old bags carrying knitting needles around- this sounds handy.
