Last Christmas I found some stash taffeta and sewed up a simple drawstring bag for four of my knitting friends. They loved it.  They found it perfect for stashing their sock in progress and slipping it into a purse or bag.  The taffeta was lightweight, yet strong – strong enough to withstand needles.

I picked up some lovely taffeta fabrics and created Taffeta Drawstring Stash bags in three sizes.  The small size is perfect for socks or a small lace project.


The medium size is great for a scarf, lace shawl, or sweater.

Finally, the large size is perfect for bulky projects.  The bag is designed with width in mind.  I don’t like to dig down deep for my knitting.  Here you’ll see the large size holding my November Ruffle Wrap.

You can see all my drawstring bags at Maiden Jane’s Etsy Shop.  To celebrate this new line of bags, I am hosting a giveaway.
