I finally decided that I needed to get myself a knitting bag but I couldn’t find anything I liked so I tried making my own.

You can’t tell from these pictures but it has 8 pockets (1 needle pocket, 1 circular needle pocket, 2 large pockets (1 has a flap closure), 3 medium pockets and a large pattern sheet pocket on the back) as well as a little snap on yarn guide.

The bottom is reinforced with that plastic cross stitch stuff, I think it still needs something on the front but I can’t think of anything right now.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place I couldn’t decide if it should go here or in the bags section.

that bag is great!  i especially love all the different pockets you made...i'll have to keep that in mind when i finally get around to making a knitting bag of my own  Cheesy

as for something more, i think it looks fine as it is, but maybe if you wanted to add a little punch to it, you could use an iron-on transfer.  get some of that iron transfer printer paper, then go online and find a cool image you like, print it onto the paper, iron the paper onto a piece of light colored or white fabric (cos i don't think it would show up directly onto the plaid fabric of your bag) and then just sew the fabric with the image onto the front of the bag.  or maybe you can add a pocket accross the front of the bag to make it a little more interesting.  hmmm, what else can you do?  maybe you could embroider some knitting needles or a ball of yarn or something equally as cute onto the bag?  or you could make a cool stencil or some kind and then just use black spray paint for an understated yet still totally cool effect.

hope some of these suggestions help  Smiley   but really, it's so pretty just the way it is.

i think you should put a scottie dog applique on the front. That would be rad. Or else you could do something else cool like a dinosaur which would be a suprising juxtaposition to your delightfully brittish fabric.
