A needle-felted gadget bag will be the envy of all your knitting buds.
The dimensions were 7 inches wide by 9 inches long.
Whether you lay your design on paper first or freehand with the yarn, make sure you leave enough space to fill in with the colorful roving.

Your design should be positioned in the middle of the bag. Place a pin at the bottom for a design boundary.

 

Position your zipper at the top of the bag and pin in place.

A bright pink zipper is fun and unexpected!

Sew in the zipper, making sure that your seam is close to the "teeth" to avoid having too much of the zipper exposed. Repeat on the other side of the zipper. A machine with a zipper foot makes this step accurate, but a plain old needle and thread would also do the trick.

Confession time. I have not installed a zipper since junior high home ec class! Not as hard as I thought!

Turn inside out and sew up the side seams close to the ends of the zipper.

I barely avioded cutting off the edge of my design when seaming up the sides. Not to worry!

Trim the seams to reduce bulk, and you will have a cozy caddie for all your odds and ends. Betcha' can't make just one!

I needle-felted the heck out of this and have no worries about its durability.
