The Bucket Bag pdf sewing pattern comes in two sizes and these drawstring bags are perfect for knitting, sewing, or embroidery projects on the go. These handy bucket bags with the drawstring top have plenty of storage possibilities, project bags for your crafts, (knitters love them), or toy bags for the kids for all the small toys and bits and pieces, and lots more.

Choose if you want an optional external pocket, or if you want to use some fancy and sturdy leather handles. Instructions are given for fabric handles also.

The end result is a beautiful quality product. Fully lined with internal pockets and a stylish but simple drawstring closure.

You can fit lots inside these bags. The smallest is really cute, and ideal for small projects on the go like socks, booties, or Christmas decorations! The large will take a small afghan or sweater. Have fun choosing coordinating colors, or make the whole bag in a beautiful plain – the possibilities are endless!

Sizing info:
When you finish making your own Bucket Bags they will measure approximately:-

  • Large = 9.5″ High (not including drawstring section) by 13.5″ wide across the opening when laid flat – large sweater projects.
  • Small = 7.5″ High (not including drawstring section) by 10.25″ across the top opening when laid flat – perfect for sock, hat, or bootie projects.

This is a nice project for an advanced beginner who has already tried a couple of bag projects and is not afraid of attempting a circular base!
