I'm firing up the sewing machine and I have a gazillion ideas for stuff I want to design, but the thing I want most is a needle/notions organizer. Do you have any favorite features in a needle case? I want a folder-like design, not the rolled case, but if you have strong feelings for a rolled case, let me know why you like them.
I am considering a zippered pocket for markers, an outside pocket to put a copy of my pattern in, a pencil slot, the requisite needle spots, scissors, small ruler, and needle gauge. I'm mulling over making the circ needle pockets like an accordion file, with one stored behind another and a velcro flap to close over those pockets.
The outside will be cotton fabric, the pockets will be clear lightweight vinyl or shower curtain (depending on how my stress tests on the curtain work out).
I'd love to hear your ideas!
