I like to hang the handles over the arm of my rocking chair while watching movies - keeps my project convenient, out of the way of curious pets (or kids) and clean instead of rolling off of my lap and all over the floor.
I've made them for years as gifts for knitting friends, and when several of them made it through over four years of daily service protecting knitting and crochet projects from diaper bags, car floors, city buses, and all the vagaries of knitting on-the-go without showing any major signs of wear or need of repair, we decided they were durable enough to offer for sale.
Faced in 100% cotton deep royal purple corduroy and lined in bright green 100% cotton printed with black and gold spiderwebs, this bag closes with a silky green grosgrain ribbon-and-button drawstring cinch for easy opening and closing without the potential to snag your yarn on other closures like zippers or velcro. The dual handles allow easy access and use as a "yarn bucket" when the top is folded down, but are long enough to put over your wrist or forearm to permit easy knitting in crowded areas or while standing and walking.
Since they are made of 100% pre-washed cotton without any sort of fussy-to-care-for interfacing, they are easy to clean - just spot treat any stains with your favorite gentle treatment, and machine wash in cool or warm water, tumble dry low. Steam iron to remove wrinkles. They're pretty sturdy (or else they'd never survive me), so you should be fine!
