How Do You Carry Your Crochet?

I just noticed this recently and thought it’d be fun to post on this blog 🙂

Check out the nifty & cost-free ways I carry my crochet WIP around –

paper bag crochet

in a paper bag – a bright red one of course 😀

bucket crochet

in a KFC bucket – those holes are so useful in segregating yarns & stuff

tin can crochet

in a tall tin can

shoe box crochet

in a sturdy shoe box

Now it’s your turn – how do you carry your crochet WIPs around? 🙂

      Oh you must! 🙂 Of all hobbies crochet is my favorite because the whole process – from choosing your project to actually using/wearing it – is so much fun! How lucky for my husband that there are no yarn stores where we live in Indonesia, else we’d have no money left for anything else!! XD XD

    Sad to say I can’t crochet,
    though many things I can.
    I love to knit, and keep my WIP’s
    in boxes plain and glam’

  4. I have two large yarn totes with lots of pockets and compartments. They were both gifts, and I use them to keep larger projects organized. But I always have something easy to work on while I wait for the kids’ lessons and practices, and I use a roomy handbag that I’ve had since the 1980s!

      Sounds handy 🙂 I’d like to treat myself to a real crochet WIP caddy or bag sometime too. Kinda seals the deal and makes it official 😀 Thanks for sharing ❤


  5. I love this question…because I have so many answers! For my cross-stitch project I’m currently using a “shopping” bag I made through shutterfly that has a picture of one of my garden flowers on it. I have a 70’s straw purse that holds projects when I have to sit at the DMV and a batik bag I got “free” with the purchase of a couple of outlandishly priced dresses in Kauai many years back that I throw crochet projects in when I’m on the go. I wish I could post pics – all the bags are so different!

    My sister in law gave me a big hand/travel bag. It’s big enough for several wips and has a zipper. Handy, so my baby cannot reach..

    I was just looking for ideas on Pinterest, but I love the recycled/reused idea! I might have to go to KFC just to get the bucket.

    I bought a diaper bag to carry my projects in. My main concern was that I knit with wooden needles, and I was afraid that if I carried them in a floppy bag they might break. So I decided on a diaper bag because they have thick, padded sides and bottoms so I can worry less about that. Also, I intend to have children eventually so I’ll already have a diaper bag. XD
    Lately, I’ve taken to just carrying one project at a time in my cloth backpack so I stick my needles in the skein I’m carrying to protect them from accidental breaking.

    I have a little basket that I use for smaller projects for around the house, but now I mostly just crochet in my room for bigger projects. I used to carry one of those reusable walmart bags for on the go but prefer my purse now (I finally have a reason to use one :P)

  10. I love bags, so I have a ton. So I put my crochet or knitting in whatever bag is closest 😉 I co love the bucket one. Very unique!

  11. I use a craftsman tool bag (I have to my hubby for his birthday and it just sat there, so I took it over). It’s great, I keep all my hooks, scissors, needles and current projects in it. I carry it from room to room in my house so I can crochet anywhere!

    Love the KFC bucket. I use a crochet bucket bag or a cloth bag depending on the size of the project.
