Rhinebeck Celebration drawstring project bag

  • 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.

    Drawstring bags:

    • Lighter weight design for 1-2 skein projects

    • Capacity of approx. 250 cubic inches

    • 10” tall and 5” wide when flat, with a square bottom

    • Plenty of room to fold over the top and knit from it like a yarn bowl

    • Squishable, so you can easily pop it into a purse for knitting on the go

    • Drawstring closure to keep your project safe from little hands (or paws)

    • Canvas bottom so that inevitable scuffs or stains won’t show

    • Optional wristlet handle for knitters who like to carry their knitting bag all by itself

  • 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.

Love my Leaping Llamas!

This is a solid well made bag! I love the size...bigger than socks but not too huge so it easily stows away in my purse/tote. The fabric is heavier...makes me think canvas but not quite as heavy. And best of all is the the fabric print! It makes me remember those beautiful fall days at New York Sheep & Wool!

Narnia Drawstring

Absolutely love it! What could be better for a knitter and reader? I’ve been enthralled with the Great American Read project-Little Skein has been into this reader-knitter connection early on. Workmanship is bar none as well.

Heartwarming design/Sturdy Construction

Absolutely love this bag. I smile every time I look at it. And it is very well built with strong fabric and stitching. Love it!

Practical and Fun!

My new project bag is just lovely. The superior craftsmanship is everything I expected. Anne at Little Skein has created these quality bags using fabric reminiscent of favorite children's books. What a unique and fun concept! Mine is from The Chronicles of Narnia, my all-time favorite. And it's just the right size to keep a single project contained and clean. I knit right out of the bag by folding down the top and setting it on the floor beside my chair. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

GREAT item

Quality, great construction and fast shipping. A perfect combo. Thanks Little skein!
