Friday(the 13) sew-n-tell

So This week was a pretty busy/crazy one for me. I had parent teacher conferences after school on Monday and was at the school for 12 hours that day! I have been battling a cough and after i taught my 4 math classes on Tuesday my cooperating teacher told me to go home and get some rest. I was home at about 11:30 on Tuesday. So i slept, I then went to UNH to visit Garrett, (and Charlie & Lauren). But i couldn't drive through concord with out stopping at Joanns.

UNH was awesome, While i was there i worked on an Ornament for the Ornament Exchange I am participating in. I also got a lot of rest, and Visited Lauren and got to see her awesome tiny apartment and her craft station. Which was set up perfectly and i wanted to take a picture of it because she was in the middle of sewing something and she had it on her machine, and it just looked so nice.

anyways on the the sewing and telling. So Tuesday the 10th was my TWIN sister's birthday. They turned 24. WOW. So i bought my sister Kathleen a gift card, because she is hard to buy/make for. And i made my sister Christine and knitting needle holder. I found a tutorial here, and just kinda winged it by the directions. Here is how it turned out:


I used some fabric that has been laying around for a while a few fat quarters. I made the ties out of quilt binding i bought at Joann's.
Here is the inside:

It has a good set of pockets and the bottom ones are for rounds. I searching through my yarn and these were the needles i came up with. My sister has more, and i bought her a pair to go with it. I think she will like it. Its a crazy color combo but i think its awesome.

So that's my finish I hope you enjoy it!

Go check out all the other Friday finishes over at sew-n-tell

Have a great weekend!

Peace & Love J-me
