The French Knitted Craft Bag Project

Are you ready to embark on a whimsical journey into the realm of French knitting? Prepare to be enchanted as we unveil our May project: The French Knitted Craft Bag! It’s not just a bag; it’s a canvas for your creativity to flourish, a sanctuary for your crafty treasures, and a testament to the joy of crafting.

Imagine yourself nestled in a cosy nook, surrounded by balls of pastel green and lilac yarn, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to transform these simple strands into something extraordinary. With our meticulously curated kit, the possibilities are endless, and the adventure begins the moment you open the box.


If you've bought this project, you'll find your tutorial video below (the password is on the front of the printed instructions in your box!)


 Inside your box, you’ll find a treasure trove of crafting essentials:

  • Pastel Green Cotton Yarn
  • Lilac Cotton Yarn
  • French Knitting Dolly
  • White Sewing Thread
  • White Cotton Drawstring Bag
  • Sewing Needle
  • Large Eye Needle
  • Design Template

But that’s not all – we’ve also included step-by-step photo instructions and an online video tutorial to ensure that even novice crafters can embark on this journey with confidence and excitement.

You'll also need: Pencil, scissors and a ruler or tape measure.

Begin by lightly tracing the design template onto your bag using a pencil. Then, dive into French knitting using the gorgeous yarns and your knitting dolly. Afterward, stitch your French knitted designs onto the bag, sewing each knitted length separately until your design is fully realised. Feel free to decorate the other side of your bag as well!

Once complete, your French Knitted Craft Bag will be more than just a practical accessory – it will be a testament to your creativity, patience, and dedication. Whether you fill it with skeins of yarn, crochet hooks, or paintbrushes, it will be a constant reminder of the joy and fulfilment found in the act of creation.

Join us as we weave, knit, and stitch our way to crafting perfection. 

This craft kit is available to buy in our online shop.


Here are our top tips for exploring the French Knitting Kit:

  • Unleash your creativity by designing your own French knitting patterns. You can sketch directly onto your bag with a pencil or start with a paper template.
  • While we opted for a single yarn colour for our French knitted word, consider alternating colours for each letter to add visual interest.
  • Utilise your large-eye needle and any remaining yarn to adorn your bag with a straightforward running stitch.
  • Remember to embellish both sides of your bag - whether mirroring the same design on both sides or venturing into unique creations of your own.
