Mini Project Bag........

I wanted a smaller project bag than this one to carry my knitting in while we are away, so hunted out some fat quarters ( a fat quarter is a piece of material that is 18 inches long and around 22 inches wide) and made one.

This one used two fat quarters and a 2 1/2 inch by 22 inch wide strip of material.  So ribbon/webbing for the drawstring, and general sewing equipment.

I cut out 4 pieces of material 11 inches long and 11 inches wide, from two fat quarters.  What was left of that material I used for the pockets and the red you see is from another fat quarter, the 2 1/2 inch strip to make the casing to put the drawstring in. 

 As you can see it will hold your needles and a large ball of yarn and a few other bits and bobs, but not much else.
 Inside there are two large and two small pockets in the outer fabric print.
 The two large pockets on the outside will be handy as well.  Angie was good enough to give me those circular needles to use as they are cheapies and it's no biggie if airport security takes them off me.......
 I have had this material years so no idea what it is called.
This is the perfect size for me to pop in my carry on tote on the airplane and it will keep my knitting clean.  Saw something similar on Etsy for $30.  Made this in around 90 minutes.  Probably would take me less time now I know what I am doing!!😊

Very nice. I prefer flat needles, but they stick so far out the bag. Always having to make sure I don't remove stitches when taking out the bag. You chose nice fabric.
