Introduction: Casing for Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks
Well, I have some kind of order... a drawer with all knitting needles and crochet hooks, but it's always hard to find what you're looking for and I have bought a new one more then once just to see that under all needles and hopok were the one I was missing. So now I have made a casing for them that I want to share with you.
This became pretty big so I have room to buy more sizes ;)
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Fabric, I used three different fabrics divided in 6 parts
Front, a piece measuring 50*120 cm
Inside, gray fabric 50*120 cm
Inside casing for long knitting needles, blue flowers 30*120 cm
Inside casing for short knitting needles, grey 20*120 cm
Inside casing for crochet hooks, blue flowers 10*120 cm
Blue flowers, to tie around 6*120 cm
Bias tape, 4 meters
Step 2: Start Up and Add Bias Tape
Start by zigzagging all fabric parts on the sewing machine.
The three fabric parts that will be inside casings will have bias tape at the top, to make it stronger.
Attach the bias tape to the fabric with pins, sew a line in the folding and then secure the bias tape at the back with pins. Finish it of by sewing it in place.
TIP! Sew from the front, that will look much better, then you can follow the edge of the bias tape.
Step 3: Attach Pockets to Inside Fabric and Sew Pipeings
I wanted the three inside casing fabrics to be evenly distributed over the inside fabric.
Therefore the inside fabric is 50 cm high, 10 cm will be folded down when using the casing, the first casing is 30 cm high, second 20 and last 10 cm high. I pin them in place and after that is the somewhat time consuming task of pinning all pockets and then sew it on the machine.
Step 4: Sew Inside and Front Together
Add the front fabric face to face with the inside and sew them together about 1 cm from the edge.
Be sure to leave a hole, at least 1 dm wide so you can turn the casing inside out.
Step 5: Create and Attach the Tie Band
Fold the tie lengthwise and pin it together. Sew about 1 cm from the edge and then zigzagg the edge. Turn the inside out and then sew the short sides together.
Put the tie band 'inside' the casing and then attach it by sewing it to the casing.
turn the casing rightside out.
Step 6: Finishing
Sew the hole that is left together and the casing is done!
Mine is almost unnecessary big, could be smaller, but at the same time, maybe it's good to have some spare place for new hooks and needles :)
