I had a little pile of fabrics that I had set aside for another project, but it seemed like such a fun combination for this project instead. I added some leather details on this one. The closure is a scrap of leather and of course the zipper pull tab. I love how leather looks with just about any fabric. I think the closure leather will probably stretch over time, but that should be an easy fix by adjusting the button position.
As for the knitting needle pockets I’m pretty pleased with how they came out. I was going to try to be all precise and measure exactly what I had and go from there, but then I realized that it probably won’t matter in the end, everything will get moved around and used anyway. So I just eyeballed some of the needles I had and sewed dividing lines in each pocket.
I haven’t made something I knew for certain I was keeping for myself for so long. I love making things, but I realize I can only keep so much before things get out of control. So this’ll be a nice little organizer for keeping my knitting needles off the bedroom floor.
