Lindsay’s (not-for-knitting) Bag

Remember when I made my roommate Katie this whimsical knitting bag for Christmas?

On the Sew Lindsay Sew blog: Amanda's knitting bag pattern review

I recently decided I wanted a bag of my own! I was keeping skeins of yarn in one of my favorite reusable grocery store “green bags,” and to be honest, I just wanted the bag back in my collection for grocery purposes.

The only thing is — I don’t knit. So this is really more of a crochet bag, because I crochet. But the pattern is technically called Amanda’s Knitting Bag by the Sometimes Crafter, so it feels blasphemous to call it a “Crochet Bag.” So I affectionately call this Lindsay’s (not-for-knitting) Bag. 🙂


I made the bag just like Katie’s, but I used cherry blossom fabric instead of teal polka dots. (I bought the cherry blossom fabric a long time ago when I saw it on sale. At the time, I didn’t know what I would be using it for, but I knew I had to have it. I love cherry blossoms!) … Mine also has a zipper and lots of little pockets for my gear. Of course, I added my own initial.


But best of all, my beloved grocery bag has been returned to the trunk of my car. Woohoo! Let’s go shopping!

  1. Love the ‘L’! Honestly, it could be used for so many things besides knitting. I have thought I could make myself one for my hand sewing projects. All of those little pockets are perfect for holding various tools. I think someone also made one as a kids art bag! Beautiful job!
