Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming “Wow, What a Ride!”

thursday's crafting ~ tapestry crochet needle case


I have several crafting projects on the back burner that I need to get a day and finish. Lately, I have been working on setting up a new computer...you know how time-consuming that can get.

So, what I have to show today is a simple project that I made a couple of months ago when I ordered my special “tapestry” crochet needles. They are long and some of them very thin, which makes them vulnerable to damage.

Digging out a scrap piece of double sided quilted fabric, I made a holder for storing them safely.

Not much to say about how to make this, it is pretty straightforward. 



Measure out your needle length, then how much you want folded over for a top flap, then measure for the bottom flap, which will be your pockets. I stitched around the entire piece finishing off the edges, (for me it was a zig-zag) but in the future I would use a binding.  Especially now, that I have a neat little gadget for sewing on bindings perfectly, which I will cover in an upcoming post.

I measured sections were I would put each needle and sewed the channel. Stitched on a piece of cording for a tie when rolled and closed and.....

whalla.... we have our Tapestry Crochet Needle case. :)




~have a great week, and may all your days be filled with fun projects and radiant smiles~
