Curiosities Knitting Bag

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Happy Wednesday! This week I wanted to share with you a recent gifted project! I wanted to make something for my friend Lei, and I remembered that she always brought her knitting over in a reusable shopping bag. I thought she could use a dedicated knitting bag, which would be a little more functional and cuter too!

I pulled out one of my friend Christina's older patterns, Amanda's Knitting Bag. I've had the pattern printed for ages, but never got around to make it. It's named after our mutual friend Amanda, as the pattern sample was a gift for her. This seemed like the perfect bag to make for Lei!

I chose to use a natural linen for the main body of the bag, like Christina's original bag. I chose a couple of prints from Curiosities and a bright zipper to finished it off!

I buy all my zippers from Zipit.

I love all the little details in this bag that make it perfect for a knitter. There are pockets for a pattern, knitting needles, yarn, and all the notions too! The little peeks of the interior fabric are really sweet. And the tiny zipper pocket are great for small notions like scissors and stitch markers!

I saved the Splendiferous Warm print for the main interior of the bag, since it's so bold and colorful! It's a great surprise when you open up the bag!

I filled up the bag with yarn, and some handy knitting notions! There is room for a large project or a few smaller ones. The short handles make it easy to hang the bag on a door handle or travel with! Now I want to make one of these bags for myself!

Happy Sewing and Knitting!
