So... ta-daaaa! this is how I thought the whole thing.
|This is the closed roll: no points, no needles around to play with.|
|This is the roll open: plenty of space for my needles.|
In the top pocket there's space for my needles (obviously ordered by size - big to small), I've even three free slots for future needle shopping...
In the bottom pocket (left to right): circular needle, two points knitting pins, various stitch holders.
I wanted the roll to be functional, but I added a cute fabric detail as simple decoration. I left the borders raw, simply zig-zagged. On the back, the same fabric and the same technique for the two diagonal stripes.
For a 20 minutes project, I'm really satisfied: fast, easy, functional and pretty.
Maybe one for my crochet hooks...?
