Sewing Pouch and Knitting Needle Roll up

Jacob's mom loves to knit and sew.  Among many other things, she finds time to knit gorgeous baby sweater sets for newborns and sew doll clothes for my niece.  I made her a sewing pouch and knitting needle roll up staying true to the Butternick pattern (I'll include the pattern info below).

The sewing pouch has room for at least 8 full size spools of thread, a pin cushion, and other sewing doodads.



You could easily adjust the sizing of the pockets inside to fit other items, like jewelry for travel or small accessories for toys.




This roll up keeps knitting needles of all sizes neat and tidy...and away from couch cushions!  :)


I was careful to keep all my stitches straight and neat.

Do you knit?  I haven't learned how to do it but I truly admire knitted items.  I tried to crochet a doily one time and it ended up kind of looking like a thong...not a cute thong either.  :)  So, I think I'll stick with enjoying knitted gifts from others.  A friend recently gave me a pair of knitted slipper booties that are very warm and they have gripper material on the bottom.  That gripper stuff is priceless.  Now I won't break my neck on our carpet-less stairs.  More about the in-progress staircase renovation another day...

Hahaha! I love the crochet doily that ended up looking like a thong! We all have a project that ended up like that (well, not specifically looking like a thong). I can knit, but I would love to learn how to crochet too!

I just learned to make vintage jewelry rolls with accordian pockets inside....your jewelry/sewing bag is sweet too....I'm gonna make me some of those too....I've crochet a while back, and need to pick it up again...it's easier than knitting....your bag to carry all the supplies full of pockets is very pretty...Mel's Designs..'n Harmony
