My Needle Roll and Yarn

Since I started making my own handcrafted needles, and my collection is getting bigger every day, I decided that my needles and hooks deserve a decent place to be put in. After searching the net, I found very interesting needle and hook cases. After carefully searching what’s out there, I made my own version of the famous needle rolls.



It was quick sewing with my old sewing machine. I don’t mind sewing with it, but when I think that in order to start sewing I have to go and get it and find a clean place at my desk to put it on and after I finish sewing I have to put it away, I immediately start to say to myself that sewing can be done in another time.
I made this needle roll with 2 table napkins and one felt fabric that is the same size as the table napkins. Basically what you do is sew one table napkin with the felt cloth. The second table napkin is also sewed with the needle roll and it is used to make pockets for the needles and hooks.
I didn’t have big enough felt fabric so I joined 3 pieces together to make one. Also, so far I haven’t found a store that sells felt fabric in cheerful colors, so what I did is buy dish clothes from my market. These days you can find dish clothes that really look a lot like felt fabric.



I seem to getting a lot of yarn in the mail these days. Thanks to Fey , Lisa and Laura .

Ovo je odlicna stvar za odlaganje "alata" , ja sam zimus napravila jedan eksperimentalni ali samo za okrugle igle. Nije ispao lose, samo sto sam ga radila od bezveznog materijala, sledeci ako budem pravila ipak cu gledati da mu boje budu ljepse:) A ovako nesto za velike igle je super!!
Vunisa isto izgleda jako dobro,ova ljubicasta na kraju mi djeluje vrlo meko.

I laso have the same attitude when it comes to sewing. I like to sew, but when I think about the process which I have to go through in order to start one project, I immediately decide, there's no real need for it :) I like your needle holder very much, however. Now, where's that sewing machine of mine? ;)

E ovo sam ja htjela napraviti za moje igle .... ali posto ne volim šiti, shvatila sam i da prelijepo igledaju i u tegli :)

I auuuu, kakva vunica ! U poslijednje je vrijeme bas moderna ova sarena.

Ovo za igle mi se jako dopada, i već dugo želim da napravim sebi nešto slično. (To je jedna od stvari koje sam zacrtala da uradim u najskorije vreme)

Jako lijepo posložene igle... ono što mene odvrača od šivanja ovakvog etuia je to što stalno kupujem igle, pa bih trebala predvidjeti još neka mjesta koja ću upotpuniti... ali - napravit ću si jedan ove zime, baš me oduševljava ovaj red!!!

Lijepo si napravila ovaj etui za igle i kukice. Srećom ne koristim dugačke igle, pa mi ne treba tako nešto.

Ovo je stvarno lepo i praktično. Baš bih volela da naučim da šijem.
