And Finished...





I'm not going to show you any super close-ups, because there's a lot of sloppy workmanship in it. But it suits my needs.

Kathy, the interfacing was Pelon brand. I don't remember exactly how it was described on the bolt (something like Rigid, double-sided), but this stuff stands up on its own very well. It is possible to sew through it, I think, but I tried to avoid that. I started off thinking about making a much more complex case, with little pockets and compartments. Then I realized I had to start simpler and see how the construction process went. Maybe next time I'll think of a few improvements to include.

Looks great! I bow to your zipperness and bias binding sewing skillz! Ack! I would hate to do that!

Is it Peltex? I've used that stuff for making diaper bags and it is wonderful! If it's the same stuff, I have sewn thru it with no problems.

I love this! I have something similar for fountain pens (yeah, I'm a dork) - never occured to me that it would work for dpns!

Nice job. Thanks for answering the Q's. I love how the circles look like they are spinning. I like things that spin. Except for me, that is. I don't like to spin. I'm with Zonda--bias tape around corners is no picnic. Happy needle carrying.
