Knitting Needle & Crochet Hook Roll

Getting those knitting needles and crochet hooks organized!

Guest Blogger: Debbie Zaleski @sproutingjubejube

Hello friends! After following along with the Organize-Along with Jennifer at Bee Sew Inspired this past summer, there's still one little area of my studio that needed some tidying up. All my knitting needles and crochet hooks had taken over a drawer and it was just such a huge mess!

I hope this FREE tutorial will inspire you to get that section organized or maybe you know someone that would really love to receive this as a gift. I was just so inspired by Jennifer's fabric collection, Forest Friends, that this whole project came together so easily.

The messy drawer went from looking like a game of pick-up-sticks to this.....

Everything is now in its' place!

What You Need:

  • 3/4 yard of main fabric for the front and back (I used Forest Friends by Jennifer Long for Riley Blake Designs)

  • 1/2 yard of 3 different fabrics to create the different levels of pockets

  • Heat n Bond Fusible Fleece

  • Non-woven interfacing

  • Self healing cutting mat

  • Rotary cutting tool & ruler

  • Iron

  • The usual sewing supplies

Let's Get Started:

1. Determine what fabric print will be placed in the three different levels of pockets.

Measurements to cut pieces will be given in height by width:

  • 2 Main fabric - 21" x 19"

  • 2 Front set of pockets - 5" x 19"

  • 2 Second set of pockets - 8" x 19"

  • 2 Third set of pockets - 12" x 19"

  • 2 Ties 2" x 24"

Cut (1) of each pocket piece from the non-woven interfacing.

Cut (1) 21" x 19" piece in Fusible Fleece for the main fabric.

2. Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabrics according to manufacturer's directions. This will be the inside part of your pockets. Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the main inside fabric. Finally Fuse the Fabric Fleece to the wrong side of the outside main fabric.

3. Take the pocket pieces from the front set of pockets and place them with right sides together. Stitch a seam 1/4" away from the top edge. Press the seam open then turn the pocket pieces right side out.

*Tip: Make sure if you have a directional print that your print is right side up!
