I was in Jo Ann Fabrics with my 40% off coupon burning a hole in my purse when I saw this packet of 5 sets of sock needles. I bought it to have spares, since I feel a major sock knitting jag coming on, plus 5 sets of needles for $10 (less 40%) is a great deal.
When I got home I decided to make a knitting needle case to keep track of these skinny needles. I found a 10" orphan block left over from an old project, and I cut a piece of scrap flannel to the same size.
For the inner pockets, I cut another 10" square of fabric, then folded it in half with the pretty side out, and marked some lines for stitching the pockets.
For the top flap, I cut a 6 x 9.5" inch piece of fabric, folded it so the right sides were together, stitched up the short sides, and then turned the right side out. The top flap isn't sewn into pockets, but is left loose.
Not bad for a little impromptu project. Plus I found my way back to the sewing machine, where I spent some time on the Madonna quilt I'm making with Debra.
