City of Craft- Spring Edition 2015

On Saturday I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer at City of Craft- Spring Edition 2015 which was held at the Theatre Centre on Queen Street West. I had a great time and I was impressed by the products made available by the 30 vendors.  I snagged some cute fabric pieces which I can't wait to use and I also got some pretty sweet thank you goodies! Looking forward to attending the next City of Craft event in December!

Knitting Needle Case

I finally took the time to sew a knitting needle case and sort out all the needles and hooks that were dumped into my knitting bag. For some reason, after I am done with a knitting project, I don't have the patience to put the needles back and so I leave them in the knitting bag. I hope this will help me stay more organized. 

I made my own pattern after researching some patterns. I have used a 17 inch x18 inch square with a 1/2 seam allowance. I used interfacing to stiffen the fabric and I have sewn each slot measuring 1.75 inch, 1 inch and 0.75 inch.
