The Stitch and Stash project bag is perfect for needlework on the go. Cinch it up, cuff it down or turn it inside out, this bag’s got tricks! Each bag has a nice round base for stability, a grommet and strap system for cinching and carrying, plus 2 sets of snaps to close up the top securely. The bag is lightly padded with a layer of batting for support but it’s not too rigid. The interior has a patch pocket for small accessories.
