If you’re new to my 52 zippers project, you can read the backstory, see all the zipper pouches, and download basic zipper pouch instructions here.

So this week I made the Brigitte needles & notions pouch using the free tutorial by Very Shannon. It’s a very cute little bag that I thought would be perfect to hold my two Addi-click interchangeable circular knitting needle sets. The cases that the sets come with are super bulky and I don’t really like them. They definitely are too big to travel with.

I thought that this one little case, that is about a third of the size of one of the Addi cases would easily hold both sets and I was right. There is even a lot of room to spare for a few sets of double-pointed needles if I’d like!

This pattern was easy to follow, worked up super quickly, and turned out great! The only change I made was to add a magnetic snap to the pocket flap instead of a sew-on snap and that required adding some fusible fleece to the inside of the flap as well. In hindsight, I wish I would have added two magnetic snaps (one at each corner), as the corners of the flaps bend up just a little. It’s not super noticeable, but it’s enough to bug me a bit.

I love how the side pocket just perfectly holds the cords.

For fabric, I used some scraps of canvas that I got from the free table at a guild meeting paired with some Sevenberry canvas polkadots. All in all, I love this case and I’m super happy with it!
