Those look great! Kids never mind bright or mixed up colors. I'm sure he'll love them!

It honk about 5" wide is a good width usually if it can be wrapped a couple times. Yours look fine

Yeah, they can use up a lot of yarn. You might have to try a Walmart, or Hobby Lobby type store and pick up a few. Some of the yarn you're using looks like Red Heart Super Saver in a worsted weight. That's an inexpensive yarn with a lot of yardage and is probably the best weight to use on your machine. Any yarn in worsted weight would work if something is on sale.

I also suggest you stick to one yarn weight per project. Mixing weights will affect the outcome. And of you use a lighter weight or heavier weight it will also affect the size.

LOL okay, Walmart is good.

Any good sized bag can be a yarn/project bag. Even some diaper bags make great knitting bags. Mine wasn't marketed as a knitting bag. It was probably a beach bag, but it zips and has long handles which I like. I'm pretty sure Walmart has something that would work. Stay away from mesh and Velcro.

Here's an example. Mine is shaped like this.

It'll be okay. Just keep the yarn away from the Velcro if you can. Yarn sticks to it and gets kind of fuzzy. That's nice he got it for you.

Nice about the heads and yarn, too!

True, you can always use the bag for other things. Even knitting stuff..or machine stuff.

Color depends on who it's for.
