Jen contacted me a few weeks ago regarding wanting a different option to store her interchangeable needles in. So between the two of us and many emails later, this is what we've come up with! Thank you Jen for all your help, advice, and encouragement!
**Please note, this is the prototype! For viewing of what future cases will be like check out Jen's**
This was made with peltex/timtex on the lower half (FYI, the stuff in the bill of a baseball hat, makes it stiff.) I so hated this...it's just too bulky and not easily foldable, let alone sew with it!
The inner lining is made with canvas in coordinating colors and the pockets are cotton fabrics and/or canvas.
Pocket built into pocket so to speak. This holds at least 15 of those pesky endcaps. It will make a good travel case, or hold a set of interchangeable needles.
Now for the details. I've had many requests already. Yikes! (thank you!!) Now those that know me well, know I love to help everyone out, but sometimes my life gets in the way, YKWIM! ;) And it doesn't help that I'm type A and a bit too particular on my sewing stuff! I do work fulltime outside of the home and still want to do my knitting, etc... oh yeah, I do have the kids and hubby that want my attention once in a while LOL! ;) Just please be patient with me. :)
So for the time being, I'm going to make up cases with fabrics I have onhand now, then offer them here for sale. (pssst. I have some good AB fabrics and other things too!) I may look into Etsy soon also. Kind of see how it goes. As much as I love to sew, I don't want to get too burned out either. (I did previously with the circular cases I made...sigh!)
I'll be selling them for $25 plus postage. (for the needle cases only, if I do make any totes/box bags, they'll be a different cost) If you have any questions, feel free to email me at
zknitterAT gmail DOT com.
As for custom orders, I think the only kind right now would be if you were to send me the outer fabric and I'll match the inner lining, etc. to it. Otherwise, it'll be whatever combo I come up with.
I'm going to see how things go as I don't want to overwhelm myself with more sewing than knitting time LOL! Darned job gets in the way! ;)
Thanks for reading! :)
ETA: I do have a dog and a cat. FYI in case someone is allergic! I just wanted you to know!
