Secret Garden dumpling notions pouch

  • Handmade to last, fabric that tells a story.

    A Little Skein project bag is for the knitter who loves making and reading with equal passion.

    You put your knitting and your time into a project bag, and we put in kindness, good feelings, and an authentic connection to a story you love.

    The process begins in my San Francisco home studio. First, I work with an artist to illustrate a theme for the story we’re celebrating. Then, I print the design on a substantial cotton-linen blend of fabric, and my team and I begin sewing.

    Be inspired every day. You don’t need a special occasion to use special things. A Little Skein bag is like a favorite book that fills you with happy memories every time you see it.

    Delight in beauty. Our handmade touch is distinct, from covered zipper ends to fully enclosed seams. When you use your Little Skein bag, you will know that it has been made with expert care, designed to last for years.

    Feel good about what you buy. We believe in people who work creatively, and we put these values into everything we do. Your project bag is made by a team who are compensated fairly for their expert craftsmanship, from the artist who draws the illustration to the person who hand-wraps your bag.

  • Sizes to match your knitting process, not just your project.
    Each knitter’s process is as unique to them as their final project so we make project bags that suit how you like to knit. There are options for knitters who like to travel light, who need a bigger bag to keep their supplies all together, or who want to add a just little more to their project bag like a book or notions pouch.

    Dumpling pouches:

    • Elegant curved top

    • Ideal for holding your notions

    • Carry a surprising number of items: my own bag holds my scissors, stitch marker tins, tape measure, needle gauge, fabric gauge, hand balm and progress markers.

    • 7” wide and 4.5” tall, with a slightly squared bottom

    • Zipper closure

  • Beauty in difference. Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so there will be some variation in where the fabric print is placed and minor variations in size or shape. We think that’s part of what makes each bag perfect – they’re not identical.

    Care for your Little Skein bag as you would a fine sewn garment. It can be washed if needed, and advice on washing is in my FAQ.

    Do you have allergies? I keep a well-organized and sparkling studio, without scents or stray threads. But the studio is also beagle-friendly. I keep Molly safely away from sewing and packing, but if you are highly allergic to dogs, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.

Cutest little bag

This is the perfect size to keep in my project bag to hold my scissors and stitch markers, tape measure and anything else I might need. Just love it!


Little Skein has done it again. Beautifully sewn, perfect size, great way to organize all my notions. The print is adorable

Great product and service!

This notions bag arrived so quickly and it is so cute! I asked for the book Great Gatsby to be in a prominent place, and of course it is! And serendipitously the book I would have liked on the other side, was!

Perfect pouch

I adore this pouch! Perfect addition to any collection, thanks again!
