Knitting Needle Case Fabric

The fabric pieces for a sewn roll-up knitting needle case.

A roll-up knitting needle case is an easy sewing project and a great way to store a bunch of needles in one compact place. This case has 24 pockets for needles of different lengths and easily rolls up and ties shut with a length of coordinating ribbon.

I'm the first to admit that I don't have a great deal of sewing skill, so this project took me a few hours, but if you're handy with a machine you could probably make your own in an hour or less.

First you'll want to gather and prepare the supplies you need:

  • two pieces of coordinating fabric, 25 inches wide and 17 inches long (or use two pieces of the same fabric)
  • two pieces of another fabric, one 25 inches wide and 8 inches tall, the other 25 inches wide and 11 inches tall.
  • coordinating thread (mine matches the fabric I chose for the outside of my piece
  • one yard (or you could get away with less) coordinating ribbon
  • sewing machine, pins, iron and ironing board.

Cut your fabric to size and press if needed.
