I have been thinking about making the knitting needle case from Betz White’s Warm Fuzzies: 30 Sweet Felted Projects for awhile. My good friend’s birthday was a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be a perfect gift! I used a nice wool sweater that I had picked up at Goodwill awhile back. It was gray with a pretty orange border around the cuffs and bottom. So, I tried to incorporate that into the design. The project in the book has a sunflower embroidery, but I used the nest/bird embroidery that was featured in the family photo album project. Inside is some cream, butter yellow, and orange 100% wool felt from my stash. It came together very easily. The directions were great and I had no issues at all. It was a bit difficult to sew the bottom of the pocket just because of all the layers – sweater and two layers of wool felt. I had to go over part of it a second time, but it looked fine.
