Knitting bag

This bag was made with much love as it was a Mother’s Day gift for my mum. I love making things for people – the process is so enjoyable as you’re always imagining that special moment of handing it over.

The pattern I used was McCall’s M5722. There are two outside pockets (one on each side) and two large, stiff pockets on the inside. The pattern suggested using buckram and fusible fleece to give the bag more shape, but I was unable to find either of these materials and used a thick interfacing instead. Must say, I had no idea what buckram was until I came across this pattern! If anyone else is thinking the same, I can now tell you that it’s a stiff cotton-type fabric commonly used in millinery. Imagine a hat you might wear to the races – apparently buckram is that stiff fabric part that is often moulded to fit your head. Who knew!

Mum loved her gift and has already chosen a project to fill her new bag over the next few weeks 🙂

  1. Thanks Laurie! I recommend the pattern – there are lots of pieces to cut out but it’s really easy to put together 🙂 Let me know when you try it! 🙂
