Fettle bags have been designed and made with the aim of providing years of service. Handmade by us in our Yorkshire Studio.

Small project bags will easily hold 4 x 100 gram skeins of yarn plus notions, making them perfect for smaller projects (of parts of larger ones)

This bag is blank on both sides so there's masses of space for bags of patches.

The bag comes with a card giving care instructions and information about the materials used.


Small project bags measure 30cm wide, 26cm tall and 12.5cm deep (or 12in wide, 10in tall, 5in deep).

The bag closes with two drawstring cords. The wrist loop makes it easy to carry your bag. The loop is approximately 22cm or 9in.


Fettle bags are 100% organic ripstop cotton We wanted to make a bag which used a few materials as possible, so picking a  sturdy organic ripstop cotton meant we didn't need lining or interfacing. A variety of seam finishes are used to make sure there are no raw edges. Using fewer materials keeps costs down, reduces the environmental impact of the bag and makes it much easier to recycle.

Fabric : organic ripstop cotton from Halley Stevensons. This waxed cotton is tightly woven, hard wearing and water repellent. We use every bit of this fabric including the selvedge.

Thread : Gutermann cotton thread

Label : cotton label from The Dutch Label Shop

Cord : recycled braided cotton from Bobbiny

Care Instructions

Keep your bag in fine fettle by spot cleaning as needed. The bag can also be machine washed at 30°C, line dried and pressed with a warm iron. The fabric will pick up creases as it ages,  adding to it's character. Should you want to remove these pressing with a warm iron will restore the smooth finish of the fabric. The fabric can also be reproofed to maintain its water repellent properties.
