This was my actually my first sewing project. I have SO many knitting needles now that I decided I needed a holder for them. I designed this myself and even though the lines are not perfectly even or straight for the needles, I am quite happy with the outcome. Here are my pictures and I will post the pattern next:
And here is the pattern:
Cut 3 16" by 32" pieces of fabric. One of the main pattern on the outside, two of the inner pattern.
Sew, with right sides facing together, the outer patterned and inner non-patterned pieces, leaving a small section open for the stuffing
Turn right-side out, and stuff. Sew together.
Sew down the center.
Sew according to patten below:
Sew elastic inside piece to outer piece. Tac down inside piece in corners of diamonds on the outside.
Sew buttons in-between two diamonds on right side.
Cut out desired letter of contrasting pattern and sew to upper right-hand corner.
With yarn, chain enough to fit around button. Sew on opposite side in same location.
Handles (Make 2):
(I need to look at my handles to remember, so I will post at a later time)
Sew handles to either side of holder.
