martina: I'll be darn.....wow....again...never thought of something so simple. That is great!! I have many more bags to make and those would hold the bag even better. Cheap too. Since I don't have a yarn shop that is closer than 85 miles, I can go to Walmart or Target to find this. Thanks Martina!!
Glad to be of help, but credit must go to Val who made the bag and her son Christopher who had the idea. He makes beautiful accurate leather items for the Sealed Knot Society. They are a re-enactment group who are interested in the English Civil War. Post some pictures when you have finished your bags.
