I have finally made a very simple bag to keep my knitting needles. I just use a unwanted cloth that is big enough to keep the long knitting needles, and hand sew it. If I know how to use sewing machine, it'll be much faster and easier. Though it is not a fancy bag, at least it helps me to keep my knitting needles, and make it easier for me to carry the needles out. Do you have a bag for your knitting needles? How do you keep them?

Hello, I like knitting and crocheting and I kept my crochet hooks in a handmade bag. I have different type of crochet hooks, and I like to put it in a transparent plastic according to the size and the type then I put the plastic in the handmade bag. I have bamboo knitting needles and I put it in plastic, I havent made the bag for the needles. Wow I cant believe that your handmade is handsewing made, it is a nice bag it looks as sewing machine made. I made my crochet hooks bag by sewing machine but I tell you it doesnt look as good as yours, I will try to upload the picture hopefully it will work out.

my needle pouch - This is my needle pouch made by felt - this is to keep my crochet needles
Hi fashionfever, thanks for the compliment. Actually I am always not patient enough to hand sew something, I always "tried" to sew nicely and evenly, but I am just too lazy and impatient to make it nice, so I usually just sew it quickly and get my job done. I don't know how to use a sewing machine, and I wish to learn it some time later. I have made a simple pouch to keep my crochet needles too. I like to put them in the compartment one by one, well, I only have 3 crochet needles, so I can easily sew the compartments.

this is another needles case that I made - This is another needles case I made, after reading your post I decided to make a case for my knitting needles.
That is a nice crochet hooks pouch I never made anything with felt but I would like to try later. I get inspiration from your knitting needles case so I make another needles case. My hand sewing is really ugly, I cant sew straight and neat like yours. Even my machine sewing isnt neat but Im happy at least I dont have to spend money to buy needles case. I learn how to use sewing machine from my sister and then I keep practicing and sometime use youtube or browse on internet when I find trouble. I learn how to use elastic thread to make ruffle dress from a Malaysian blogger, maybe you can find tutorial how to sew using sewing machine on internet or youtube.

Hi kaka I love to sew too, it is become my hobby when i have a spare time I keep it in a little box or can needles are easy to fall and it is hard to track it since they are so little It is necessary to keep them in one bag or box

My needle pouch - This is a simple needle pouch made by felt
Hi ifa, I meant knitting needles, those are quite big and long. As for those sewing needles, I have also made a simple "needle pouch". I used a few pieces of felt to make a little pouch, one of them are for needles, and others are for crochet needles, scissors, etc.

I do which I would be more handy with crafts. I know how to knit, embroider and crochet and none of them too well, I always have projects in various phases of progress so I have a hamper with all the various things together. I have a tube just basically a long tube which I made using thick cardboard tube and covered in wrapping paper with two lids on either end from flasks tied on with ribbon made the lids, that keep all the needles together as they kept on getting lost, I did that years ago so it is a little worse off from wear and tear. Talking about that I really need to finish embroidering a table cloth that has been there at least 2 years which I never seem to be able to finish.

hi leeloo, I don't know about embroider. Well, I didn't have the motivation to learn crafts making. I started to do all these crafts because of my son, I want to make some simple toys for him, and this keeps me working and working.

I embroidered a few squares in cross stitching a while back as gifts, but for some reason I have had a tough time finishing this table cloth. Been sitting there staring at me for ages can't seem to finish it.

I usually just put my knitting needles in a drawer. If I'm knitting something, I take the project with me in whatever bag I'm carrying that day. I guess I could sew a project bag that would keep everything together more neatly but I haven't gotten around to it. I think a simple bag would work fine - no point in having anything more.

hi cutepenguin, Yeah, I used to carry my knitting needles just like that. But I always use a cloth to cover the sharp ends, so that it won't accidentally poke on my fingers, and especially my 3 year old boy's fingers.

hi bretay, Yeah, I understand what you meant. I am more keen to make other stuffs instead of the "tools" itself too.

I still have the bag of knitting needles that I have had for twenty years or more now and they are in my mums loft, as we do not have a loft any more where we live.I think that it is great to be able to keep all the knitting things all together as that way they are easier to find when you want them.

i used to have a slotted bag for my crochet hooks (each hook went into its own slot) but i ended up giving the bag to my daughter for her markers. now i have my hooks in a pencil jar.
