Duh. Make a roll to hold her knitting and crochet needles... I ended up making the exterior by piecing a variety of the fabrics to make a mini-quilt and quilting it in diagonal lines.

Here's a close-up of the rings as attached to the front before the entire roll was sewn together. I cut a piece of fabric 4" wide and about 17" long so that once folded, it finished at 1" wide and 17" long. One end was finished, the other left with raw edges I then looped the two d-rings through the raw edges end and tacked it in place as shown above.
The inside has three rows of pockets to hold needles and other stuff. Not being a knitter or crocheter, I have no idea how many pockets are needed or what size they should be so thank goodness for online tutorials.
