These simple drawstring bags will add a punch of color to your fiber arts handiwork time. Each is made from recycled fabric that was once a skirt that was never worn by either of my daughters. So, instead of donating it for a 6-7 year old girl to wear and enjoy for about 1 year, we though it would be nice to make into knitting totes that could be enjoyed for many, many years! The bags are made from 100% cotton and are the perfect size for smaller knitting projects such as socks, hats, scarves, shawls, and mittens. They will comfortably hold two to three 3.5 ounce skeins of yarn, needles and pattern. The drawstring may be pulled to one side to be made long enough to throw over your shoulder, or, you may wish to pull the drawstring from both ends making the lengths shorter and able to be tied in a bow.
