My new needle case

I had knitting needles floating around my knitting basket and I didn't like having to dig around for them. I've seen needle cases online that I liked, but they're pretty pricy. (See an example by clicking here.) I also have seen instructions for making your own needle case, like here. So I made my own, and I didn't follow any pattern, just looked at some pictures and thought about what I wanted. Even though my sewing skills are not great, I'm pleased. Here's the inside. (Sorry the picture is not good.)

You like my rockin' fabric choices? The outside green and white fabric was a remnant I got at a thrift store. It's a fairly heavy-weight fabric, like canvas, almost. The inside pink print is a light-wieght cotton that Matt's mom bought for me about a year ago. And the green ribbon that matches perfectly? I found that in my ribbon box and have no idea where it came from.
