Project Bag....Size Matters

Really liked the previous little wool bag I made but it was very small.....could hold one cake of yarn and one pair of circular needles with the project crammed into it....so I played with the math and made a bigger one.  This one size wise is great....but I’m going to tweek the size of the floral top print a little.  I’m also playing with interfacing and stiffeners because if you enlarge the size of the wool piece ..... the bigger it gets, the floppier it gets and there’s nothing worse then a floppy project bag :).
I may add the handle later....right now the only piece of boning I have is too short.

I’m having a hard time finding nice ribbons or trims to use as draw strings.  Joann’s has a lot of bright white stuff and a couple of cream colored ones but not anything really interesting, primitive, country looking.  If anybody out there in Blogger world knows a good source for things like that, I’d appreciate the info.

Heading south tomorrow for Maryland Sheep and Wool weekend. Driving down with a friend and meeting up with some of my old “home girls” from when we lived in Maryland along with some friends I met on the Ireland trip.  I’ll take pics I’m sure.

Love the bag! Does the boning go in the channel at the top of the wool piece? Great idea for a more structured bag.

Chris the binding goes in the handle like in the smaller blue bag.
