Happy Friday everyone! It’s time for another Bee Crafty Kids Link Up! Every Friday, I get to co-host this roundup with Dusty from To The Moon and Back and Melanie from Our Crafts N Things! You can find out more about all of us here.
This week, I’m sharing a couple of DIY knitting needle holders that are super easy to sew.
If you have circular knitting needles in your house, then I don’t have to tell you that it’s a pain keeping them organized. They roll up in funny ways and get tangled in your straight needles and it can quickly become a mess. The solution: A hanging knitting needle organizer!
Now you can buy these already made, but where’s the fun in that? All it takes to make your own is a couple fat quarters of fabric and some thread. To make this one, I followed the tutorial from Pin and Paper. You only need to sew straight lines to stitch it together, so it’s a perfect beginner’s sewing project. In fact, I plan to help Tigger sew one for her budding knitting needle collection.
For straight needles, you can make a simple DIY knitting needle roll. This is pretty much the same design as the hanging organizer but without the loop at the top. WikiHow has a great picture tutorial on how to make this one. It just requires two pieces of fabric and a string of ribbon.
To make room for my shorter double pointed knitting needles, I just used pinking shears to cut the pockets down so that I could reach them.
All tied up! These make great gifts for the crafters in your life, so you might want to encourage your kids to make them for homemade gift giving.
