Picture of Knitting Needle Holder
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

Materials:
*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
*iron
*sewing machine and matching thread
*one button of your choice
*elastic tie
*pins
*ruler
*removable fabric marker

Step 1: Cut your fabric

Picture of 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

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.
