A longtime friend-of-the-family has a birthday coming up. She moved away a number of years ago but has always kept in touch, sending us beautiful handmade creations when we had our kiddos. I decided it was high time I gave her a little somethin’ handmade!
I love my knitting needle roll, and since she also loves to knit, I figured she might appreciate one for her stash of needles. Since I already practiced the pattern on myself I knew what to expect and it came out much nicer this time.
I filled the top pockets with needles for the sake of the photo, but I found a bunch of extras for the lower pockets – some of them vintage from my grandmother’s stash! – in my collection to pass on. Again, I used Made by Loulabelle’s tutorial with a few tweaks of my own, and I got the pockets right this time! I wanted to personalize it, so I put together a little quilt tag and and finished it off with some freehand embroidery.
If I ever get my Etsy shop up and running again, I’d love to sell some of these.
