Kumihimo travel bag

I made this for my son. He wants to learn kumihimo (Japanese braiding). And so I decided to make him this bag that's a modified travel jewelry bag with an attached drawstring bag to hold his cords. I messed up so on the bottom I put a blue circle and after I finished it I realized that the blue circle was off center so I decided to make it a  monster eye because I thought he think that's really cool. In the bag is a Kumihimo wheel & bobbins and you can see the cords in the drawstring bag and the drawstring bag fits inside of the jewelry type bag allowing it to be closed all-in-one. You can also see the green and gold wirewrapped bead weight that I made for him in the first picture.

That is really cool!  I've got something similar that I bought (can't sew to save my life)...

Thanks. I had to do something since my kids do this too, and it always seems to end up all in my bag leading to massive tangles. Drives me nuts because more than one project had to be scrapped. And, of course, I have no money so I had to use items I had on hand. This is basically the same bag that  I made for Mother's Day except with the second drawstring bag attached to hold cords so it was a pattern that I'm already familiar with.
