I made this bag for myself to carry my hand applique project on a recent trip. It's the perfect size bag for my needs. I actually carried 2 hand projects in it, no problem. I like to do that in case I finished one project, I have a 2nd one to work on while I'm on airplanes and for during layovers in airports. I used a small piece of left over soft and stable. I love it and it was super easy to make.
