And yes, my next project is to make a needle keeper..

The handle in moss stitch..
1. Cast on 5 stitches
2.First Row: knit, purl, knit, purl, knit
3.Second Row:purl, knit, purl, knit, purl
4.Repeat Step 2 and 3 for desired length.

And the bag in stockinette st..
1.Cast of 27 Stitches
2.First Row:Knit
3.Second Row: Purl
4.Repeat 2 and 3 for the pattern.
5.After 30th row, follow the pattern with decreasing the stitches as below.
6.Decrease 2 stiches for each row. Decrease by knitting/purling 2 stitches together at the start and end of each row.
7.Keep decreasing unit you reach 9 rows. Bind off.
8.Repeat steps 1 to 3 for the other side. Sew together and sew the handle too.
