Storage for knitting and sewing bits

It's the patchworking that takes a long time, so, you can always use a block piece of material to speed things up.

This would be a great idea to use up scraps of fabric from other projects to turn into something functional and well as pretty. Also would be great from traveling and if you have a lot of needles, make them easier to find.
