On Sunday, I decided to spruce up my sewing room. It was really not looking good after my Christmas gift projects plus the gifts I received that would now live in this room. One thing I have learned about myself is that I cannot create in a messy space. I don't mean that every surface has to be spotless or anything, but if I have to move a pile of stuff to use a certain surface I need or dig out a certain tool to make something, it probably isn't going to get made. I know that's pretty sad that any little hindrance will completely stand in my way, but it is true for me so I know I need to keep my spaces clean. Once I had things put away and cleared off, I had a sudden urge to sew something. Imagine that :)
I've been looking into knitting needle cases for about the past month. I've pinned several patterns and tutorials, but I just never found a case that I was hoping for. So, I decided to make one completely by myself - pattern and all!
I'm super pleased with my pretty new needle case! I love that I was able to use all stash items and that I made it completely on my own! Now that I have all the width measurements done, I'm planning on making more for different needle lengths. Also I might do the next one roll style so it's not so large. Now that I have all the kinks figured out, I will post a tutorial next time I make one :)
And that is officially the last project of this year for me :) I can't wait to make more fun things in this new year! I'm making a 'soft of'list of goals for the next year - nothing too specific, but I think it's always good to try and improve :)
