Thanks so much for the binder plastic idea. Just the other day I was wondering if using cardboard was such a great idea. I'm impressed with your finished project.

Thanks for a hilarious review, and great knitting bag love the fabric! I'm surprised you are allowed to take knitting needles onto a plane these days!

Great review. And the bag looks really fab. But how are you allowed knitting needles and crochet hooks on planes? I know they'd be confiscated in Australia at least.

Oh, about the knitting needles and crochet hooks ... I always bring the XL bamboo knitting needles (very blunt), and bamboo crochet hooks (bought these in China).

Very cute. Much nicer than the pattern cover! You are such a great seamstress! The fabric choice is perfect!

How do you get knitting needles through flight security? I'll fly your airline! Meanwhile, on the cardboard issue, good to know about your plastic choice. I've found on smaller projects that the adhesive-backed squares of flat carpeting found in hardware shops is good. Very cuttable, soft surface and bendable and of course, fixed to the bag bottom by the adhesive that usually keeps the square stuck to the floor. Nice work.

Great bag! I also use an open-topped Lancome bag for my knitting and am so very jealous of your more functional bag!

The bags on the pattern seem so blah compared to yours. You've got a winner! Thanks for the enjoyable review.

Great fabric choice, it makes the bag. Thanks for the tip on the Mead binder.

Oh, this bag is so wonderful. It makes me think of going out for lunch and drinks with the girls. Thank you for the very helpful review - great tip about the binders and stapling.

How. Cute. Is. THAT!! I usually don't consider myself much of a bag, but this is very cool. Thanks for tempting me to branch out and for the entertaining read!

So, I never get excited by bags... but this is pretty cool looking!

Cute bag! I have always heard that knitting needles were exempt from scrutiny on planes (for whatever reason) and I have never had any trouble flying with them. That said, I am hardly a frequent flier.

This is just perfect. I love the shape and the fabric and I think it's great for knitting. I'm just making a knitting bag with another pattern and I just wish I'd seen this review sooner. Thanks for all the detail - I wouldn't have realised it had a zip from the pattern photo - and thanks for the binder tip.
