So I just started a snazzy new job in downtown Chicago as a web designer, and I needed a bag to hold my knitting stuff inside my big bag so my projects wouldn't get dirty. This is what I came up with:

Its corduroy on the outside, with a side pocket and a handle on each side. The flowered patch is a bit of the lining zigzag stitched to the outside. Nothing too fancy.

This inside lining is some funky cotton poplin from ReproDepot.com. I even put a corduroy pocket inside too to hold all my knitting accouterments that usually end up in a jumble in the bottom of my bag.

Thanks for looking! This is my first official new project post, so go easy on me!  Wink

The shape and fabric colors are nice. It looks quite roomy too and the little side pockets are a nice touch. I like your kitting bag, you did great!  Cheesy

Wow that's really cute!   I like the size and proportions - what are the measurements?  Where are the handles?   I'm planning on making a bag about that size later this spring for my gym stuff.    Hmmm....

Navi - the size is about 12"x10", based on the size of the shopping bag I always get from the yarn store in town. There is one handle on the end, you can see it in the top picture on the right. So I guess you technically carry it by the handle sideways, but I wanted to keep the sides with clean lines.

Can I just say it is so cool that I can post something and people from all over the world comment on it! The wonders of technology.  Grin
