Large Knitting Needle Holder - Waverize It!

I've been making smaller knitting needle cases for a long time, starting with one for myself.  They've been great for double pointed needles and crochet hooks, but not quite long enough for larger 14 inch knitting needles.

So, when I had the chance to sample some home dec-weight Waverly fabric from Joann, I decided the extra stability would be just what I needed to create a larger version of my original design.

I love how the mega knitting needle case turned out!  It's nice and sturdy, and the modern print is cool, too.

       

It's also very secure - the top flap holds the needles in place, and the ribbon tie keeps everything neat.  I plan to make some more of this design for my Etsy shop.

Can you think of some creative ways to use home dec weight fabric?

Very nice. I like using the longer needles myself. This looks like a great project.
