YOU ARE AN AMAZING KNITTER
You deserve a project bag that’s as original and beautiful as the yarn inside.
The best part of knitting is that it’s portable.
You need something to protect and organize your projects.
You don’t want to feel embarrassed to pull out your knitting in public (say goodbye to your plastic zip lock bag).
But you don’t want anything ordinary or fussy.
Which is why we make project bags that you’re delighted to use whether you’re knitting at the coffee shop, waiting in line, hiking through the forest, lounging on the beach, road tripping, knit night or snuggled up at home binge watching Netflix.

With more than enough room for your yarn, pattern, and notions – our bags are designed to protect and organize all your knitting projects.
I LOVE this little knitting bag! It is well made and I really like that it features upcycled fabrics. It’s the perfect size for a hat, sock, or mitten project. Thank you for creating such a beautiful bag! Laura from New Hampshire
Handmade, one at a time, with quality and care, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
Arrived promptly and even nicer than the photo shows. I love Elizabeth’s upcycled bags. They are the perfect size for a small knitting project & will stand on their own but are flexible enough to fold over the top for a built-in knitting cozy. Many thanks! Jodie from Nebraska
Using a combination of hand selected upcycled, new or vintage fabrics, each bag holds it’s own story that is special and one-of-a-kind.
This was my first time buying a project bag for my knitting projects and I am in love. I’m very happy with my choice. Beautifully crafted and made. Elizabeth from Oregon
Hi, I’m Liz.
I learned to knit 13 years ago under the shade of an apple tree. While my husband tended the garden and my three unschooled boys learned about bugs and the stars, I taught myself to knit and purl.
Over the next few years I knit every spare moment I could. I was OBSESSED. Trying out stitches and experimenting with new techniques. Eventually, I learned to create my own designs, clothing my family in head to toe wooly goodness!
Other mom’s began asking me to make hand knits for their children, so in 2009 I started an Etsy shop, creating natural, custom, hand knit, hand dyed clothing from my original designs.
Over time, the shop evolved to knitting patterns and other handmade goods.
Creating custom hand knits was a rewarding experience, but I found it was much more fulfilling to help other knitters find satisfaction in working with their own hands.
As my love for knitting grew, so did my admiration and appreciation for sustainable, beautiful, high quality materials and tools. I swapped out synthetic yarn for natural or hand dyed wool, shopped local and supported other makers + designers whenever possible. Knitting became more than just making. It cultivated a deep connection to a different, more meaningful life.
At the same time, my husband Mike and I made a drastic change to our family life. My handmade business was doing well enough that he was able to quit his job and follow the dream we’d had for years… to live slow and simple, connected to the land and each other.
We sold everything, packed up the kids and moved to the country.
It hasn’t always been easy, but we LOVE what we do and the LIFESTYLE we’ve created.
Today, we spend our winters together working from the kitchen table of our cozy off grid home – that we built with our own two (well ten) hands. Our homestead is nestled into a ten acre field of wildflowers in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
Summer’s are spent down the road, under a canopy of pines, maples and oaks, while we play host in a nearby campground. Just a few steps south through the woods takes you to the banks of Otter Laker where the boys swim and fish while I sit on the dock and knit or forage for wild plants to use as natural dyes and medicine.
Whether you’re a brand new knitter or have been around since the dawn of fun fur (please tell me that’s not still a thing), we hope that our Upcycled Project Bags and knitting patterns become a part of your handmade story.
