Hey guys.

I just finished a batch of small project bags and figured i'd post it. I can make a Tutorial if any one is interested in how i did it all you have to do is let me know! The awesome things about these bags is that they have a snap top meaning that they can bend out of shape to fit what you need then they Snap right back into the closed position!

The whole lot of them:

Those are cool!  I love how they have the snap top.  And I'd love a tutorial.  Where do you get the snap stuff?

i got the snap "stuff" at.... the hardware store... or at walmart to be honest it's probably cheaper at walmart. the snap stuff is nothing otehr than the metal that measuring tapes are made out of! i will go to walmart and pick up a measuring tape to make a tutorial as i ran out of it while i was making these.

Cute bags - especially the cat fabric Smiley

If you know anybody in construction, they can likely find old broken measuring tapes on the job site - my son has found me a couple that way, lol!

I'd love to see a tute on these, especially how you put in the tape measure piece.  So cute!!

I knit a lot and would love to make some of these! A tute would be cool (if you still want to that is. ♥)!
