This knitting bag is designed with a grommet in the center so you can keep yarn inside and pull the working yarn through the grommet. When you’re through knitting just unzip top, place project inside, push yarn to end of zip and zip it up. Now you have a great looking handbag!
The project bag is roomy and has inside wall pockets to hold essential tools. It is attractive and can be used to hold your valuables as well as knitting since it has a zippered top so everything inside is safe and secure as long as you zip it up and there is no need to keep it open because you have access to the yarn from outside the bag.
The bag is approximately 17 inches wide by 14 inches tall and the strap at least 14" drop
Being an avid knitter as well as a quilter I designed this project bag when I was commuting. I would bring my knitting on the train and often drop the yarn and have it roll under the seats and down the aisle picking up dirt and dust. With this bag, the yarn stays nice and clean inside the bag plus the zippered top keeps your keys and valuables secure.
The bag is made by me. It has a very pretty black and pink flowered, 100 percent cotton print on the outside and the lining is also 100% cotton. I used a polyester batting for padding and buckram as a stiffener so the bag will stand up on its own, however, when washed this bag will lose some of its stiffening because the buckram will lose some of its starch, but it will still be stable and beautiful.
I can make this project bag in different sizes and fabrics to suit your needs.
