DP Needle Holder is a handy way to store your double point needles.
Materials: 1” wide decorative ribbon, ¾” wide elastic (I prefer black), iron on mending tape any size will do.
Directions: Cut two pieces of ribbon wide enough to cover tips of needles about 2 ¼”. Cut elastic 5 ½” long, cut two pieces of iron on tape the same size as the ribbon. Lay ribbon face down place elastic on top of ribbon centered half way up, lay iron on tape on top press with hot dry iron. Do the same with the opposite end. Fold ribbon in half and whip stitch seems on top and side. Leave bottom open for the needles. NOTE: typically dp needles are 7” long. If you have any that are longer or shorter cut the elastic about 1 to 1 ½” shorter than the needle.
