My favorite project bag is a cute pink-with-striped-trim bag that I got with a Lancome purchase. Over the years, I've gotten scads of cosmetic bags and totes from cosmetic companies. Many have found their way into my craft bags. The small ones are great for notions, and the large ones are good for toting projects. One of my favorite little totes that has quilting supplies in it was from Avon. A person can use only a limited amount of bags for cosmetics, but my craft supplies are unlimited!

I have one Clinique bag (OK, I have 35 Clinique bags, but that's not the point....) that has become my circular needle storage bag. It's absolutely perfect. All my needles are either in their original bags or in a ziplock w/an index card of the relevant info. I've filed them by needle size and length in this Clinique bag, and it's perfect. The bag has a magnetic closure. Other bags are for jewelry, notions, and sometimes even.... cosmetics. Imagine that!

I agree. I have a classy little Estee Lauder cosmetic bag freebie, that I use to tote my current sock project. I toss it in the car, knowing that if I have to wait anywhere, I have everything I need inside to entertain myself for a good long while.

Which bag did you use for your circular needles? I have an embarrasingly large # of Clinique totes and cosmetic bags. I have about 6 sets in rotation for the sole purpose of my knitting projects. I use the tote for the project and the matching cosmetic bag for notions. Even gave DD#2 her own "set" last year for Christmas - she just got into knitting last year.

I love the cosmetics freebies bags..they are wonderful..and any I don't get with my make up and stuff I find in junk stores all the time...I am a purse addict so I know these are actually some well made bags. I keep socks to go in a cosmetic bag in my purse too. Perfect for that.

I just got a gorgeous purple tote from Lancome. The fabric has a suede feel to it, and it came with a little cosmetic bag perfect for knitting notions. I also have that pink striped one which is so great because it sits up on it's own so nicely.

I know...don't you love these. I make it a practice to never buy department store cosmetics unless there is a gift. I figure I am paying for it anyway, so I might as well have the gift!

My absolutely favorite project bag is a Lancome tote bag I got years ago with a purchase. It's great because it has a zippered top that doesn't snag the yarn. Also, it has side pockets where I keep all my notions and crochet hooks (not the circulars, as they are all on a special "circular solution" holder in my closet <g>).

Beth - Sorry to take so long on this one: the Clinique bag I use for circulars is pink vinyl/plastic and it looks like an envelope clutch. On the outside (I've got it here at my desk) it's about 8" long and almost 6" high. It's got a pleat on the bottom. (If I stretch out the pleat completely, it's about 2.5" wide/deep.) The fold-over top closes w/an invisible magnetic snap. I've got 12 sets of circulars in there and there's definitely room for more. Neat, complact, and I love it. Hope this helps.

By the way, my dpns are in another Clinique bag - this one's orange, and more of a traditional dopp kit shape w/a zipper around the top and an orange handle across the top. It's about 10" long, 3.5" high, and 4" deep.
