I made this bag for my sister's birthday and since she has now received it I can post it here.

 I couldn't find a pattern for this that I liked so I made my own pattern for the crown and used Mr X Stitch's pattern of Keep Calm and Marry On for the font and altered the bits I needed. 

Here is the complete design before I made it up into a knitting bag.

I couldn't find any handles so my husband made me a pair out of an old piece of plywood and painted them white.  The bag buttons over the handles so they can be removed for washing.

And the thread is DMC's glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss so she can find her knitting bag in a power cut/air raid shelter/ whatever. Roll Eyes

These are the charts I made for the bits of the pattern I had to alter to get the Carry Yarn wording, and the crown if anyone else wants to use them. 

I hope they are legible.  The rest of the pattern is, of course, at the Mr X Stitch link above.

Lucky sister!!  This is so cute and I love that even the handles are homemade.  Thanks for sharing!
