Sometimes you just want to travel light and not lug a big heavy cavernous bag around. Little bags are nice for when you’re going to cruise around in your car and don’t want to dig too deeply for your gadgets or some gum. Perfect for us girls who aren’t inclined to carry the world on our shoulders.

It’s a sweet little project that packs a lot of charm into a small package, and makes a perfect personal gift for you or your friends, especially if you’re in a hurry!

If you’re a beginner knitter and have lots of enthusiasm, this one’s for you. Even the embroidery techniques are super easy!


Difficulty level: enthusiastic beginner

Embroidery instructions are included, plus my favorite tips in laying out your design on the bag.

PDF Pattern includes 10 pages of very detailed instructions and photos for every step of the process. Also includes contact information should you ever have any questions or concerns.

Approximate finished size: 9” wide, 5 ½“ high at mid-point, and it’s depth in the base is about 5 ½”

Note on variation

NOTE: Ecru coloured bag shown has a little more height and a variant of the original embroidery design.
