Difficulty: Intermediate

This pattern and it's kit will be released on May 1st! Pre-order yours today.

I still remember the awe and power I felt when I knitted and then felted my first felted bag. It amazed me that soft and drapey knitting could become so structured and have such durability and integrity. I was smitten. The love affair has only deepened over the last twenty-five years. I never grow tired of this canvas for my creativity.

Quite the contrary: I love it that I can make tiny bags, elegant purses, large totes, or my own luggage. I am, right now, in the process of making two different colorway versions of this phenomenal Travel Bag. Once I finish them both, I will make another Medallion Travel bag in a colorway that indicates they are friends, and then these three wonderful bags and my Magnolia Tote will truly be my go-to luggage set. Rollerbag next!?

Now you can make your own luggage set, too.

Make it exactly what you want: beautiful, unique, yours.

I've put together some curated colorways for you to choose from in The Magnolia Travel Bag Complete Kit.

    The Colorwork Tote Class: make the Magnolia Tote or the Medallion Travel Bag

    (CLS-Colorwork-Bag-)

    Pattern:

    I remember the first time I saw a felted purse. It was very small but it had a big impact on me . . . I had never seen the way that knitting could become a three-dimensional object with structure and so much architectural integrity and durability. I wanted that. And so knitted felt became a canvas for my creativity: I loved making my own fabric. I loved that my bags and totes and purses were exactly what I wanted: understated and neutral or vibrant and whimsical, covered with flowers, or bold with sleek hardware, big and roomy for weekend adventures, or tiny and romantic, for my own secret pleasure.

Make two in the same colors but switching main and contrast colors and you have a beautiful matching set. For a smaller coordinating bag, work in a single strand.

    The Medallion Travel bag is knit from the bottom up, beginning with a stockinette, Fair Isle bottom. Stitches are picked up around the bottom and then the body of the bag is knit Fair Isle in the round.

    Delivery Method:

    The Magnolia Tote is as practical as it is striking. Different styling offers different utility with the changing silhoette: it is my favorite farmer's market companion; with the sides pulled out straight, and roomy enough for orchard-ripe apples, fresh kale, collards, multi-colored carrots, and fresh, home-grown mushrooms. Once home and divested of treasures, tuck in the sides for a more efficient silhouette: this tote is ideal for shopping in narrow store aisles. Keep the top snapped but reach in the sides for your wallet, or snap your tiny purse,
