Show & Tell: Knitter-whitter

Happy April fellow crafters!

Show & Tell Thursday's

Remember this crochet hook holder from last year? Well, my friend liked it so much she asked if I could make one for her knitting needles! What a flatterer!

Unfortunately I did not have any more of the pixie fabric, so the stash was consulted and we stumbled across this green pillowcase... which was actually given to me for all the birdie paper-piecing by another friend! Anyhoo, it was perfect!

And I was stupidly happy stumbling upon the ribbon in the bottom of my button container... all twisted and knotted... but look at that colour - perfect!

Armed with her biggest set of knitting needles, and an idea of what I wanted to do, and some help from the interwebs, sewing commenced.

I was rather delighted with how it turned out. And lucky for me, so was she!

So, lovely folk, what have you been whipping up? Any finishes? Any sneaky peaks? Any WIP's?
Looking forward to seeing what you've been making!
Have a happy Thursday!
