Whether you're making them for yourself or as gift, your Lexie Barnes inspired knitting bags are sure to become a favourite.

Lay one of the fabric squares flat in front of you. Ease out any creases or wrinkles. Fabric choices should be attractive and durable enough to hold crafting materials. Coloured and printed linens, canvas, and hemp fabrics serve as useful materials for a knitting bag.

Squeeze a one inch thick line of glue along all but the top edge of the fabric square. Do this on the printed side, if using a printed fabric.

Place the second square of fabric directly on top of the other with the print side facing inward. Press the edges of the fabric together firmly to adhere them with the fabric glue. Let the pouch dry for about 30 minutes so it sets completely.

Turn the knitting bag inside out to expose the printed sides while hiding the glued seams. The end result is a large, one-compartment knitting bag resembling a Lexie Barnes creation that is both simplistic in style and attractive.


As an optional step, you can cut the ends from a canvas belt and glue each end to the inner sides of the bag to create a convenient shoulder strap.
