DIY Knitting Needle Bag
I think I accidentally make more knitting accessories than I do actual knitting... But here's a sweet little bag I made to keep my under-used needles in!
1// You will need: A piece of fabric slightly longer than your longest knitting needles, ribbon, needle and thread or sewing machine.
2// After measuring out your fabric according to your needles - with your "wrong" side of the fabric facing up - turn over roughly a 2.5cm hem at the top.
3// Pin and sew along the line of the hem, leaving the sides open for your ribbon tie.
4// Thread the ribbon through the hem, and tuck in the raw edges of fabric at the ends with a couple of small stitches.
5// With the right side facing up, fold the fabric in half and pin, so your bag is effectively inside out. Sew along the side and bottom edges, leaving just the ribbon top open.
6// Turn the bag the right way out and use the ribbon as a drawstring top.
Maybe I'll start knitting more now that my needles are happy in their little carry case! Hope you enjoyed this easy-peasy DIY...
