This organizer has cosy knitted & felted pocket linings in three bright contrast colours ideal for holding credit cards or tickets, phone and Kindle or change purse.

There are magnetic snaps at the sides to pull in the bag when closed and allow you to open it fully when open. Matching leather handles add a touch of class and style.

I used just over 9 x 50g balls of yarn in the main colour and a small amount of each of the contrast colours. Pocket linings were knitted in lime green, burnt orange and cerise but could be made in the same colour as the bag.

I was lucky to find purple leather handles which exactly matched to shade of the yarn. These had antique brass rivets which then determined the colour of the bag hardware but you could use silver or gold hardware if you prefer.

Measurements after felting at 60 degrees:
11.5” (29cm) high x 11” (28cm) wide x 4.5” (11cm)
