Leather Knitting Bags

So what’s so special about leather? Is it the smell, the texture, the way that it ages and softens so beautifully…? Or is it all of those qualities that make it a truly unique material to use and work with?

Leather has always been special to me. Good quality leather glows from within and ages so beautifully.

The Photograph below was a recent commission showing the incredible natural scaring that can appear in leather.

So when I was recently asked to make a leather project bag for a friends birthday I jumped at the chance. I made her a two skein project bag with her company logo embossed in gold on the front. It was a really special project for me and one that I really enjoyed making. After seeing the project bag again after a a few months use I was amazed at how beautifully the leather has softened. So there was only one thing for it… I made up more and set up a little Etsy shop so that other could enjoy these too.

If you’re looking for something a little bit different to the normal project bag then pop on over to our Etsy shop and have a look, I have three different sizes available to pre order a the moment and if you would like something specific then please get in touch and I can make you something to fill your specifications.

Happy knitting
