Taming the circular needle, part one

During class this afternoon, I had a random inspiration of how to sufficiently pack away my circular needles for the trip to Peru-it had to be something similar to a cd case, portable without any needle tips or cable hanging out. Problem solved.

Yeah, so the ladybugs are a little bit cheesy. But it was a leftover cut and the whole thing cost 25 cents. Well, the binding was another dollar, but for 1.25 and ten minutes on the sewing machine I have a nifty {slightly cheesy} folding circular needle case. This one is only four large pockets, each with enough room to hold about 6 or 7 circs, and the clingy nature of the plastic cover material holds things in place. A thrifty solution, and no more circulars to menace airport security with as potential garrotes.

Seeing as how this was my first attempt, it is only part one. My compulsive tendencies almost guarantee a more improved version at a later date, but don't hold your breath.
