You know you need a great bag to hold your craft projects. Let your Proud Knitter colors fly while carrying around your latest project in this fun project bag! This very easy bag requires almost no sewing (other than whip-stitching the cast-off edge explained in the pattern and attaching the handles with a yarn needle and yarn.) Only simple sewing skills needed to finish the front of the bag with the pictured design.

Skills needed are: Knitting in the round, Kfb, K2tog, YO (abbreviations are explained in pattern), very basic stitching skills with a yarn needle & yarn, embroidering (just with a plain straight stitch) if you would like to finish the bag with the wording and sheep shown on the example. Patterns for all the sheep pieces are included so you can cut them out and use them as a pattern when you cut your felt, and a template of the lettering is also included which will allow you to draw the letters on your bag if you’re uncomfortable embroidering them free-handed.
