Circular Knitting Needle Case
All my needles needed a home and I decided to sew a home for them: One case for the normal needles and one for the circular knitting needles. There are several tutorials about needle cases on the Internet and I picked up ideas here and there to make my own. Here is how I made the circular needle case:
0,45m Amy Butler fabric in pink
0,3m Amy Butler fabric in matching pink
0,45m interfacing (vlieseline)
4m ribbon band (skråbånd)
Cut the following pieces from the fabric:
For the outer fabric 54cm width x 41cm height
For the inner lining 54cm width x 41cm height
The interfacing is 54cm x 41cm
Two times cut 54 x 14cm for the 2 compartments
Cut 4 bands so you can tie the case.
Sew the upper edges of each compartment
Sew the compartments on top of the lining. Make as many pockets as you need and keep in mind the big needles need more space. Make sure when you sew the pockets, that you divide the needle case in 3 equally sized parts, so it is easy to fold the case when you want to tie it with the ribbon band.
Place lining, interfacing and outer fabric on top of each other and pin together with pins. Sew all 3 fabrics together with the band (skråbånd). Place 4 ribbon bands at the right side and sew together with the band.
