A Knitting Bag

Making a Knitting Bag

It's no secret that I love to make all kinds of bags and totes.  Here's a few of the bags I have made and blogged about....

Slouchy Sling,  Little Bow Pleat bag,  The Convertible Bag,  Two Zip Hipster, The Anita Vacation Tote, The Bookbag Backpack

My friend, Kathy, asked me to make a knitting bag for her daughter-in-law. Well, of  course I said I would love to do it!

Tall Knitting Bag       design by Susie's Sunroom

Tall Knitting Bag~            design by Susie's Sunroom
Dimensions:   16 inches tall x 13 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches deep
Features:   Magnetic Snap closure
                Pockets-   Two slip pockets inside  , one on each side

Inside-  slip pockets on each side of lining (one with velcro, for keeping scissors, etc)

I wanted this to be a tall bag that would easily hold her long knitting needles, as well as a project.

The dragonfly fabric turned out to be so pretty

Lots of room for keeping her work in the bag, too

What's that project that you can see in the bag?

It's is an  afghan that I knit for my friend, Joe.  I hope it will keep him warm when he isn't feeling well.

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Very pretty and very practical! If I were a knitter, I would be thrilled. But I'm sure that bag would be great for hiding some of my fabric stash!

  2. Very nice knitting bag and afgan you made for your friends. I know how to knit and purl and it's on my bucket list to learn to knit socks some day. My mom used to knit in the winter and I have good memories of seeing her knit some wonderful things and lots of slippers.
