Knitting needle organizer

So, I have a lot of knitting needles. To keep them organized, I made this organizer out of some spare fabric. I first hemmed all the edges (if I were doing it again, I would have first cut off the white stripe, but since I was going for functionality and not for looks, I think it is okay). I then folded one end up ~5 inches and sewed along the sides. To hold the needles in, I sewed lines ~1 inch apart, making sure I had enough for all my needles.

To support the tall needles, I hand sewed ribbon near the top.

To easily identify the circular needles, I made them "name cards."

I keep the "name card" of the needles currently in use on a yarn needle that I store on the back of the organizer - so I don't lose those pesky little things!

I attached some ribbon to the top corners so that I could hang the organizer on the wall

A space for everything!
