Homemade Christmas



Last year, we made gifts for some friends, and the oldest daughter wanted a knitting needle case.   After a bit of searching (was there life before Google?!), I found a free online tutorial for one, complete with pictures!


Here are pictures of the case.   It rolls up and ties shut, and you can be as creative as you want in color schemes and decorative touches!!!




A closer look at the buttons:




And here it is opened up:



I had Susannah (aka Suzanna Mae Janae!) make some neat beaded knitting markers:



I guess my friend’s daughter started filling it up as soon as she opened it!     She LOVES this fabric (I got it at Wal-Mart), and I agree it is quite cheery looking!!!!


You could do vintage, retro, earth tones, wild, country……the sky is the limit!!!   It really didn’t take long to do, and the instructions were very understandable!


If you want to make one like it, here is the knitting needle case tutorial at Multicrafty.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge and see the details better.


Are you making some homemade gifts?  Or have you for past Christmases?  Then sign the linky, and join Vintage Girl’s Homemade Christmas meme!

    I have been reading over your last few posts. The Holy Walk sounds very interesting. We will have to look into that.

    Your Homemade Christmas posts are always so fun and creative. I used to sew so much more in the past, so I have been encouraged to get to sewing again. I am actually making homemade napkins, well, as soon as I get off the computer. ;).
