We will start the year out with an organizer!

Join us for this easy-to-make craft project! You must be familiar with topstitching, "birthing the bag" and other techniques.

The same material can be used for the entire project or use an assortment of colors and prints for a more creative look.

If you are using a one-way print for the pocket pieces, then three (3) should be cut in a horizontal direction, and three (3) should be cut in a vertical direction.

Decorative stitches, binding, or other embellishments can be used on the outer edges of the pockets.

TIP: If adding binding, you will only attach it to one (1) of the edges, so that means six (6) strips, 12.5-inches each. Additional binding, approximately 6.5 feet, will be needed for the outer edges.

A matching drawstring bag may be created using a separate pattern; a bag will help keep needles in place when transporting the rolled-up organizer.


Straight needles & crochet hook pockets: Three (3) pieces, 12.5”x12.5” each

Circular needle pockets: Three (3) pieces, 12.5”x12.5” each

Liner: One (1) piece 12.5”x12.5” and one (1) piece 12.5”x8.5”

Ties: Two (2) pieces 12.5”x2”

Outer cover: One (1) piece 12.5”x20.5”

OPTIONAL ZIPPERED POUCH or Store-bought zippered pouch case with three-ring punch grommets

Three (3) pieces of ribbon, 12.5” each
