Run Away to the Met 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.

Can’t help but smile

Every time I see this little bag I start to smile. It reminds me of Pooh, of course, but also of the person who made it with careful hands and exquisite attention to detail. The inner lining has plants that a quiet bunny might like to nibble. All in all, a great purchase. I’m glad I overcame my hesitation and clicked “buy.”

Great Bag

This bag is well made sturdy and the custom fabrics are just, well, you know if you are an "Outlander" fan. Jenny had Merino at Lallybroch!

Lovely bag to dangle on the wrist!!

My beautiful drawstring project bag is no slouching sock sack! It is expertly made and a pretty accent to carry as I knit about town.

Sock club bag and yarn

The bag is bigger than I expected and holds my 2 balls of yarn and notions easily. The wizards purple yarn is vibrant and will make a fabulous pair of shortie socks for me.Service was quick and I will definitely purchase again. Thanks.


I love my bag! Its study enough to carry by itself but flexible enough to be put in my carrier bag. I have a full cake, two half cakes and a mini in it (and the socks of course and still can put my wallet and phone in it to carry into places. I love it and know it will be a stapke when I take my socks to school (my work) when we start back up. Thank you!!
