The little zipper bag has a loop of sorts I can carry it on my wrist or hang it on a hook--some pockets inside-some shallow for needles, etc, and some deep.
The roll I am very happy with--as an afterthought I attached 2 little rings on inside so it can double as an organizer in my sewing room hung on hooks but be rolled up to go with me, too . You can't see it but there is a flap that flips to inside about 1/3 way down before you roll it up so stuff can't fall out.
I like the fabric but it isn't my favorite-it was a bargain, but good quality- that is why I used it!! I couldn't bear to use something I might want for something else--and I only brought a few of my fabrics with me to North Dakota.
I must say, that it took me a few of days to figure out what to do on the front--I couldn't find buttons I liked and I wasn't sure about applique. bought 3 different fabrics and 2 kinds of buttons. I am pleased with what finally evolved--a simple little bird applique I drew myself.
One of the first projects was a sweet little bag to sling over my shoulder to go to the Farmer's Market or other shopping--something just big enough for the necessities so I wouldn't have to lug my BIG leather purse!
I used the same fabric to make 2 little organizers for the kitchen drawer here in the little studio apt.
ABOUT this fabric--I love it--it is from a dismembered garment from a stash of older fabrics I was given by Joann. She used to sew but was ready to part with all her saved fabric. It is a very smooth cotton--I just love it.
