Knitting Needle Holder

I had plenty of fabric left from making the knitting bag, so I made a matching knitting needle holder. 

It has a fold over flap, so once it is rolled up and fastened, the needles can't escape.
There is just a little of the fabric left, so I may try my hand at making a little zipped pouch for holding stitch holders etc.  This may not turn out as expected, as putting in a zipper is going to be quite a challenge.  I think I may have to have a practise first.

Great needle holder. You can always baste the zipper in before you machine it or just stitch it in by hand if unsure.
I'm sure you'll do it

What a great idea! Good luck with the zipper. That's another thing I need to try! :0)

That is a lovely needle holder. It is one of the things on my ever growing list of things to sew.....Seeing yours has bumped it up the list.

Cute needle holder. I love these. I didn't really think I would use them until a friend of mine gave me one and I love them.

Zippers are ok for me but what I hate is putting in buttonholes! See if there's video on Youtube about zippers and watch a demo. You can do it!
