A Case of the Monday Blues drawstring project bag

  • Original fabric, classic design. My drawstring project bags are perfect for a one or two skein knitting project.

    A Little Skein project bag is utterly unique. Most of the fabrics we use are original and exclusive to our shop. First, we work with an illustrator to bring a particular idea to life and print the design on substantial cotton-linen fabric (similar to a decor weight). Then, we craft our project bags one at a time, with an eye for detail, and finish them by hand.

    Our drawstring bags are generously-sized and have plenty of room for one and two skein projects. Your yarn and work-in-progress will easily fit inside, and it will cinch tight with a grosgrain ribbon and cordlock drawstring to keep little hands (or paws) away from your project. It's made with a coordinating canvas bottom to highlight the exterior fabric and also give the bottom a bit of extra durability and protection.

    I don't include a wristlet handle by default but am happy to make one for you. (See the "adding a handle" tab above for more details.)

  • Drawstring project bags are:

    • Approximately 10" tall and 10" in circumference, with a 5" by 5" square base.

    • Made of 100% cotton and cotton/linen fabric.

    • Made with a "word ring" that can be used as a connector for other bags or handles.

    • Machine stitched with beautiful top-stitching and fully enclosed seams.

    • Created with love in a kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and smoke-free studio. (Our beagle pup, Molly, doesn't help with sewing, but she's around the studio so if you are highly allergic, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.)

    Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so you should expect there to be some variation in fabric placement, as well as minor variations in size or shape. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Please let me know if you're not completely delighted with your purchase.

  • I don't include a wristlet handle by default. (I usually just pop my project bag into my purse, so I find a handle to be mostly extraneous.)

    If you'd like a handle, though, I'm delighted to sew one for you out of matching fabric. Wristlet handles are $5 each, and measure 9 inches long from tip to tip, with a 1 inch swivel clasp that clips onto the bag's word ring and a 6-inch fabric open loop.

    Handles are sewn to order, so if you order one, please allow a few extra days for your order to ship.

Sturdy and widemouth bag

The Prince Edward Island bag has to use the sturdiest fabric of any project bag I have ever owned. It is think and stands up on its own. In order to close the bag I have cinch the fabric by hand because the fabric is far too sturdy for the ribbon used as a draw string, which has already started fraying from only being used for one project (I'm just going to swap that out with a cord). This project bag is wide enough you can slip one of the small plastic yarn bowls inside of it for any difficult cakes or balls, and not have to force the bowl in. Very nice bag.

Great bag

Great bag very well made

Very nice bag

Well made a nice size love the bag


Perfect for small, on the go projects

I am absolutely in love with this project bag. The drawstring is perfect for bringing my knitting when standing in line and the flat bottom make it easy to set upright and place on a desk or the floor at work. It comfortably fits a 4 oz skein with project notions like needles and snips. The fabric itself is somehow hearty and soft at the same time and the print looks even better in person than in photographs- something I had been cautious about as a first time buyer from Little Skein. So to reiterate: love this bag and it's perfect for the majority of my projects (hats, small shawls).

Cute bunnies!

Great quality! Different lining from photo but still ok. I love all of their bags!!!
