How to Sew a Knitting Needle bag

I wish I knew how to knit. It is something I have always found intriguing. And you can make so many lovely things when you know how to knit. Maybe someday!
I was recently asked to custom sized knitting needle bag. So…here is what I came up with…

The customer wanted the bag to be 5 by 24…plenty of space for every size needle.
 I cut 2 pieces of outside fabric and 2 pieces of liner fabric 6 by 25. I used med. weight fusible fleece to pad the back of the outside fabrics.
 With right sides together, sew around the edges…leaving a spot to turn fabric right side out.
 Turn fabric right side…then sew seam and press.
 Do this for the remaining fabric pieces.
 Sew a 5 inch zipper to the liner side…be sure to leave zipper half open.
 Sew zipper to other side. Then sew right sides together and turn right side out.


Great for keeping all your needles in one spot!
