Possible hedgie bag project

Okay so I like to knit (but I'm still new and not very good) and I have some left over yarn from past projects. I can't find something I really want to make with it so I was thinking maybe I could make a little bonding pouch.

Now I plan to make the knitted part just the outer lining and then use fleece as the inner lining. I think that would help to prevent any little nail snags but I wanted the opinion of others. I thought I would make the stitches small but maybe that's the opposite of what I should be doing. I just want to make sure it would be a safe bag if handled correctly before I go wasting my time and yarn on it.

The only way a knitted item would be completely hedgehog safe is if it's felted.
WendyKnits has a lovely free pattern for a knit felted cuddle cup: http://media.wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm

It's big but could be adapted.

You could also use a felted bowl pattern like this one:

Just a thought.
