The Handmaker’s Bag

You’re a creative person.  You make cute stuff.  Handmade wonders that take hours upon hours to complete that are often gifted to others.  And when you give those handmade gifts to your loved ones you take special care to wrap them in pretty packaging.

Well…I believe your handmade items should be wrapped in pretty packaging from start to finish.  And that’s what The Handmaker’s Bag is all about.  I make pretty bags for you to fill with wondrous creative projects. Bags to keep your works in progress in until they are completed and ready to go to their new homes.  And then the bag is ready to be filled with a new creative venture.

As a handmaker myself I’ve tried a lot of project bags.  Always looking for that perfect one that has all the features I need.  Through trial and error I think I’ve come up with the perfect bags for every handmaker.  Whatever type of handwork you like to do, whether it be knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, needlework, embroidery or countless others, I think you will find a bag to fit your needs in my shop.

All bags are made from my own patterns and designs and sewn in my Washington home studio.  Great care is taken that each bag is constructed to perfection but still holds the uniqueness of being handmade.


And now I’ve developed a hand dyed yarn line with my daughter Sarah, Twigs + Twine Yarn Co.  We started releasing these yarns in February 2017 and have had great reviews.  You can find out more about these yarns by clicking here or by following my daughter on her blog at The Naptime Knitter.  These yarns are now available in the Yarn Shop.




Katherine has been sewing for over 20 years.  She first started sewing in high school and purchased her first sewing machine shortly after the birth of her first child and has never been far from her sewing machine since.

She designs and sews from her country home studio in Washington which she shares with her husband, Dan and two pugs, Zoey and Lola.

Katherine is mom to two children and Nana to one sweet grandchild.  When she’s not sewing bags or blowing bubbles for her granddaughter she enjoys knitting, cross stitch, scrapbooking and sewing sweet dresses for her grandbaby.
