i'm desperate to make myself a decent knitting bag.  i have an old style one but it is too big and ugly to take everywhere with me.  i want to make something big enough to hold a small project, say a hat, pair of gloves, socks - maybe even a scarf, but it doesnt need to be so big as to hold a jumper or a blanket.  that way it would be good and portable for sitting on my lap in the car or whatever (i'm a passenger!) and i always have little projects going on, especially leading up to christmas.

has anyone here made their own knitting bags?  i'd really like to see what other knitters are using and what they find most useful.  my current bag only has one pocket, on the outside, which is just not enough.  but on the plus side it does have an accurate tape measure sewn to it which is dead handy.

it also has a wipe clean and pretty strong inside.  i have no idea why.  is it necessary to have a really strong lining?

i would really appreciate some ideas and advice - would also love some photos of your own knitting bags if you have the time!

I found a great one in a book called Pursenality Plus by Eva Weichmann. It is a knitted bag that is then felted. It is shown holding some knitting supplies in one of the photos and it frankly looks like it was meant for that purpose. It's on Pg 26 and it is called the Capri bag. If I knew how to knit, I would make it, but since I do not have a single ounce of ability for knitting I just have to hope that my mother-in-law can make one for me, since she knits. I would use it as a regular purse though, it's a great bag.
