Hanger Storage Bag
This Peg Bag is designed to fit over a hanger so you can store small items in the closet. It is a knitted rectangle that has been decorated to look like a dress, but can be left plain or decorated however you wish. Designed by Frankie Brown.
Hanging Storage Bag
Originally designed to hold clothespins while hanging on a line or hanger, this cabled bag could easily be adapted for other uses where you want a hanging tote bag. I thought it might be useful to hang on a walker for example. About 12” x 12” (30cm x 30cm). Designed by Catherine Marcoux
Life Beyond the Kitchen had a great idea to replace paper or store bought protectors for stacked pans with knitted protectors. She offers 4 knitting patterns but you can make your own. You can even re-purpose leftover knitting swatches. Great stash buster!
Ok, it’s not a knitting pattern but it’s a great way to use all those yarn ends you know you hate to throw away. maRRose has a great photo tutorial for creating this bow using yarn ends in a homemade paste placed over a plastic-wrapped bowl form.
Remote Control Holder
Louise Butt designed this holder with moss stitch and color change accents.This pattern was featured on page 51 of Simply Knitting August 2010. The link below will take you to a digital archive of the magazine.
Pill Shaped Case
Quick and easy felted container shaped like a pill capsule. The designer Xandy Peters uses it to carry pill bottles but I think you could also use for other items like crochet hooks or earbuds or cosmetics or anything small.
Ellenesque Felted Bowl
Easy pattern featured by Americo Originail in Canadian Living for storage baskets in any size.
Sundance Lunch Sack
Cecily Glowik MacDonald created a re-usable lunch bag that will be the envy of the cafeteria or the office. She based the shape on a paper lunch bag with creases in the middle of the sides to help it fold in and added stability to the bag by using a slip stitch pattern on the bottom. The cable pattern with French knots makes this pretty enough to show off. Finished Measurements: 7½” wide x 4” deep x 10½” tall
Feather and Fan Bag Bag
Kristen TenDyke designed this holder for plastic bags or other soft items. Finished Measurements: 13½” long x 12¾” circumference. To find the pattern, click the link below and look for the Patterns section in the right sidebar of destination page.
