I have a love-hate relationship with stitching bags. It seems I have a hard time finding one that is just right, and it has to be cute. There is always the cute factor...ever so important.
I love the project bags that are zippered. I have several of those in different sizes and they work really great for a project. When I go to my stitching group I have to carry more than my project bag. I need to carry an Ott light and an extension cord. The size I stitch on requires good light and my eyes aren't getting any younger. I have "progressive lenses" just a fancy way of saying bifocals....LOL.
My first stitching bag is kind of old and lacking the cute factor. I think I got this in the 1980's and it is seriously drab.
