Notes

The story of The Three Little Pigs inspired me to design this toy box.

I used just 260 yards of yarn in knitting this, but you may need more, so I suggest you buy four balls to be safe.

The straws aren’t visible in the final project as long as you seam it carefully. The straws I used were bright green and were the flexible type that we call “bendy-straws”.

You could give this bag a little more structure and stability by knitting the top edges into casings similar to how the bottom casings were created, instead of finishing them off with an i-cord cast off.

Cost of materials $9.
