Written by Kate Curry

Every knitter needs a project bag! You wouldn’t believe how much stuff we crafters have to cart around to make our gorgeous fiber creations! Yarn, needles, buttons, zippers, needles, measuring tape, stitch markers - the list never ends! If you’re looking for a knitting bag and you need some inspiration, let us guide you through some gorgeous knitting bags! 

Our Favorite Knitting Tote Bags

Crafters Deluxe Storage Bag

This portable bag offers a sturdy soft-sided shape that will keep even the most prized needles and hooks safe and sound. The exterior features a large zippered compartment for your less delicate items (patterns, stitch markers, chapstick, etc.). And let’s not forget those gorgeous 8 pockets, perfect for organizing all your knitting odds and ends.

Fat Quarter Storage Bag

Okay….so technically this is a fabric storage bag, but trust me when I tell you : you can store a TON of yarn in this bad boy. If you’re the type of crafter that needs to bring a metric ton of yarn with you in your trunk, this storage bag is the perfect option!

Reduce Reuse Recycled Tote Bag

Sari Silk Purse

Are you looking to carry your knitting around in style? Each one of these Sari Silk Purses is a little different and handcrafted with love by the women in our co-ops in Nepal. They are made with reclaimed pieces of sari material, and well-lined to make them sturdy enough for your knitting wares, to hold school books, or even baby supplies.

Market Tote Kit
