Gifts for Knitters: Sew up a Project Bag

By December 16, 2011

Follow me on:

If you ever take your knitting out of your house (and maybe even if you don't) you probably could use some bags to put your projects in. Sure, you could just use one of your reusable shopping bags or an old backpack, but why not bring a little style to the party?

Whether you're crafting for yourself or someone else on your list, sewing up a project bag is a pretty easy way to keep your knitting contained and to add a bit of style to your to-go project.

Our Guide to Sewing, Debbie Colgrove, has a few likely options that could make good, basic project bags for knitting projects of various sizes.

First, there's the drawstring gift bag. These little totes can be made in any size you need and any fabric you want. Make the drawstring longer to use it as a carrying strap as well.

The simple tote bag is another great choice; you could even combine these two and add a drawstring to the tote bag (instead of or in addition to handles) to keep your knitting a little more secure as you travel.

If you're not a tote bag kind of person, the simple drawstring backpack is another great choice that you can make in a jiffy. It's a really cute way to tote a small project, and the drawstring will keep your yarn secure inside the bag while you knit.
