Handmade Knitting Bag with Bamboo Handles

Mom – if you reading this then look away because this is part of your Christmas present and Santa won’t come if your naughty!

My wonderful mother has been keeping her yarn in a plastic Woolworths bag for about the last 35 years so I thought I’d treat her by making a nice knitting bag for all her wools. She loves this Cath Kidston print as it features Classic British Tourist spots including the beautiful St Michaels Mount in Cornwall. And we are both a little bit in love with Cornwall – well, aren’t we all?!

It’s made with Cotton Duck which is heavier and more hard wearing than standard haberdashery cottons. The handles are bamboo which I picked up on ebay for just a few pounds.

I have no pattern for this I’m afraid as I just made it up but I’m sure you can see it’s just a very basic rectangle shape with the top two corners taken off to allow it to shape round the handles.

 

Merry Christmas Mom!
