Mum’s Knitting Needle Case

When I started sewing more regularly (last August!) my Mum mentioned that she would like a knitting needle case as she couldn’t find one that matched the style she wanted.  My original thought was to make one for Christmas but I forgot and then by the time I remembered, I hadn’t got enough time.  So I set out to make one in July for her birthday – August 6th.

I had a good look around online to get some ideas for the one I wanted to make.  I wanted the make to be ‘fairly’ simple but also pretty and useful.  By combining a few ideas, I chose to make a roll with three horizontal sections for different sized needles.  I also want to add a bit of extra detail so I decided to quilt the outer piece of fabric.
