Ever since I took up knitting seriously in 2010, I've amassed a small pile of knitting needles. I'd been keeping them in their individual bag/packaging and storing the whole lot in a canvas drawstring bag. I wasn't happy with this method of storing - I had to make do until I found a better option - and what I really wanted was a knitting needles roll.
I found a couple, which were selling at between RM40 and RM80. What stopped me from buying was the limited storage. I wanted enough slots/pockets for all the needles I already own and those I will buy in the future. I decided to make one myself.
I looked at many tutorials to get an idea how to begin. As I'm hopeless at sewing and figuring out measurements and stuff, I very quickly decided to use felt instead of fabric.
Here's what I came up with...

My very own hand sewn knitting needles roll! What I've always wanted.
3 tiers of slots/pockets, enough room for both current
and future needles! :)
I glued a strip of ribbon along the edge of each tier of slots/pockets
to strengthen the felt.
Had to hand sew through 5 layers of felt where the pocket tiers are!
I am quite pleased with the end result. :) Now I don't have to worry about the thinner needles breaking while rattling around in the canvas bag. If I feel more adventurous some time, I may make another one using fabric! Now, that will be an undertaking of epic proportions!
