Oh my, Mother's Day is fast approaching! But never fear we have a couple o options for you! Read on my friend ...
So the idea for a knitting needle pouch, came to me when my Mumma was visiting me last. She is forever knitting little people projects + travelling (as her grandkids are at far ends of the earth!). I was thinking, how does she contain all those needles + not lose any along the way - Enter fantabulous IDEA! We'd also been putzing in the studio whilst she was here, folding fabrics + trying to get organized in between kid chaos ... and thats when she saw it! My handprinted vintage Obi belt, that has travelled around with me for so many moons, waiting for the oh so perfect project to come along. I could see instantly that it #sparkedjoy + it was totally her colours, she is quite obsessed with blues, especially those Navy varieties.
So I had to do a lot of sneaky sneaky questions, to figure out how big to make her pouch, as i am not a knitter by any means! Mumma uses the crazy long ones, 14's, so you could adapt our pattern to suit you, by measuring you longest needle + adding 2" for your pouch length, instead of 16" like ours.
But anyhoo's, back to those options! You can either download our Bob Jones - knitting needle pouch project + tutorial for FREE for the next 3 Days (until Thursday the 5th May), after that ... our fantabulous little tutorial, that can be used over + over, will be available in our shop for $2.99!
or perhaps Option B works better for you!
Run outta time or not really a sewing addict ... well we have 2 Bob Jones - knitting Needle pouches in our Sparky Jones Shop already made for you + ready to ship! We have the delicious Green Houndsthooth + the bold Pink Plaid left.
ps :: i'm thinking I might add a snippet of that gorgeous vintage Obi belt fabric to la shop tomorrow - so if you are interested, keep your peepers open!
Au Revoir my friends - now get busy.
