a knitting notions pouch

This is my little weekend sewing project,
which was so long
You would think that with the numerous
knitting projects I have going on, simultaneously,
I would be a bit more organized.
Instead, all my little knitting notions and doodads
have been scattered about--in a basket here, a knitting bag there,
or in a bowl on a book shelf...
When I need something, it's never where it should be
and a desperate search ensues :)
But no more,
I have sewn up a simple little pouch
using a leftover piece of canvas grain sack
and a metal zipper--no lining, nothing fancy--but very functional.

{ Note ~ those little metal candy tins
make great holders for the little bits & bobs. }
Now, with everything contained, my trusty
pouch can move with me from project to project...the
current one being the garter yoke cardi...


  1. It's so simple, yet absolutely lovely.

  2. That's just lovely, Deb!
    It does indeed make a big difference to be able to access your notions on the spot when the need arises.
    And I love how your new case coordinates beautifully with the basket and the yarn :)

  3. Such a great little bag to hold your knitting supplies. I think I need to make one of these. I love that you didn't waste that cute little grain sack fabric leftover.

  4. How perfect! I love using bits of leftover fabric for things like this. Time to dig through my scraps again! Thank You for the inspiration...again.

  5. So cute and I love that canvas grain sack fabric!

  6. I am exactly the same way, everything scattered everywhere...if only I had a little pouch like this one...maybe someday :)

  7. That's a fine idea. I need to make one for my embroidery stuff. One pouch to haul around all the little things.

  8. Great idea...think I might just make myself one of those :)

  9. simple but yet so beautiful!
