Single-use plastic bags so easily find themselves blown away on the breeze, tangled in tree branches or washed out to sea. However, we knitters have solutions! We can make reusable bags for ourselves so we can say with pride: “No plastic bags for me!”
Last year I wrote my very first blogpost about the BYOB - Bring Your Own Bag knitting pattern and then followed that up with suggestions for lots of bags in different colours and finishes.
So I thought it might be a good idea to put some of these ideas together on a page for inspiration. Please click any of the photos below to read more:
To see all the patterns I now have available for knitted bags, please click here. In addition to the bags pictured above, you will also be able to see details above five fabric-lined bags which are included in the Southampton Collection and also a backpack, the Westernesse Bag.

I love this. LOVE it.
I was talking to a woman who works with children at a group home. She said that, when they come into care, after being removed from their homes, their things come with them in garbage bags. When I saw this it gave me an idea.
I'm going to try to knit one a month and give to Social Services for those children, At least each can have something colorful to call her own. And it ain't a garbage bag. Thanks!

That's a brilliant idea, Sue. Thanks for suggesting that!
