KIP Knitting Bag Giveaway!

Recently I took a trip to Hobby Lobby and almost bought myself a bag similar to this one below. I had decided to wait and see what I could find online in case there were some less expensive ones somewhere. I don't knit, but I want to learn how. I figured why not start collecting all the things that go along with knitting to make sure I like it, before I actually learn the art. :)

I came across the site KIP Bags by Ruddawg. Just look at this fabulous creation that only retails for $7.50! That's a steal!



Just look how many pockets are in this thing! Tons of space to stash things!

Even if you aren't a knitter, you could still use this bag. I think it might be large enough to stick a pair of clothes in there for an overnight bag.
There are so many great features to these handy KIP bags:


1. They have pockets inside. There are 5 slots for needles and 3 pockets for other items like scissors, patterns, and stitch markers

2. They are completely machine washable and machine dryable.

3. They are a great value. For less cost than a skein of sock yarn, you can get a bag that will look stylish and protect your projects.

4. Two tabs sturdily sewn in the back of the bag allow the knitter to utilize whatever type of pin, carabiner, string or ...twist tie to attach the bag to themselves.

5. There are no zippers, no velcro, no nothing to get in the way of your knitting.

6. The dimensions of the KIP are: 8 1/2" tall and 7" wide. They close with satin cords.

The bag pictured above that was lovingly made by Ruddawg is the bag that one lucky Winner will receive.

There are also many other choices of fabric over at the shop. Here are just a few of the samples. Just think that at the price you would pay for one retail store's bag, you could but a whole slew of these beauties!




To enter, let me know which fabric is your favorite from KIP Bags by Ruddawg! For a second entry tell me what you would use it for!

Spread the Love,

I like the retro squares one and would use it for knitting, crochet, or maybe a diaper bag for in the car with some back up clothes in it.

Love the batik rain fabric....! I would use mine as a knitting basket...right now I use this lined wooden apple basket that a sil gave me....great for at home, but it isn't portable to a girlfriend's house for a time of knitting and fellowship. I'm just learning to make socks...got the yarn this week, now to find a good beginner pattern.

Alexandria said...

Oh wow! What neat bags :D I think besides the ones you've shown, my favourite is the "KIP Bag Medium Valentine Hearts". But they're all so pretty!

Alexandria said...

Oh and I would give it to my Nana who loves to Knit so when she comes over for a visit or to babysit my kids, she has a proper bag to carry her things in.

auntrene said...

I like all the fabrics. My favorite is the Lavender Floral the best. If I win I will be using it for a craft bag, I crochet, don't knit. Thanks for the giveaway.

katt said...

I would use it to tote my stuff to the knitting class my kids signed me up for as a birthday present!

ecky said...

Joan said...

I like the Classical Red bag... I would give it to my daughter who's an avid knitter and can never have too many bags to carry her knitting in.

Mimi Elise said...

i love the multi colored striped one! its really pretty! I would use it for carrying around my jewelry supplies when I go to classes. or on long car trips to put mics. stuff in!

Jacky said...

I really like the Small Retro Squares fabric, it's really cute! =)

Jacky said...

I would want to use it for my crocheting projects; it's way easier to have a bag to carry things in than trying to tote it all along without a bag! =)

Bridgett said...

I'm not a knitter, but my step-mother is. I would give it to her for Christmas. She would LOVE it!

Jen said...

I like the Tree Peony in Sky design. I would either give it to my friend who knits, or start up knitting myself. I was just telling her the other day that I might like to learn. These bags are just too cute!

Ashleigh, Ben, Noah and Tait said...

Second entry: I would use it for the blanket I am about to start for our new arrival-to-be from far away...

karen m. said...

I really like the design on the giveaway KIP bag as well as the Amy Butler peony flowers one. Great idea for a bag to keep all those bits and pieces together for projects on the go. Thank you!

karen m. said...

I would use the lovely bag as my craft-of-the-moment keeper while I'm waiting around at dance class or a sports practice or at the bus stop. So one day it might carry papers, scissors, and glue, and on another day, needles, thread, fabric, and scissors. It would be wonderful to keep things in organized pockets instead of big jumble in my purse. Thank you!

grendelskin said...

I like the classically red, as well as the lavender floral. I would probably use it as my take-along bag for my Grandmother's Flower Garden - I carry a lot of little hexagons wherever I go!

Kasie said...

My favorite design is the 1st one posted above (pink flowers). I didn't see that one on the site though. My second favorite is the Tree Peony in Sky design. What a great deal!

Meg W. said...

I love the first one... I'd totally use it for its intended purpose, to stash my WIP!

Kasie said...

My Pastor loves to knit. If I won I would give it to her. She would love it. However, other uses I could think of... small diaper bag, beach bag, overnight bag...

Tamara said...

Animal Print in satin !!! Could you use it for a purse?? ha I know I need way more purses in mine!!

Tania Bell said...

I have a really good friend who knits so I'd probably send it to her.

alexa said...

I love the Matisse pattern, but really they are all gorgeous.

For a second entry I would probably use it as a diaper bag for the car and daycare. And when the kids are older and i have time, I could learn to knit and use it as a knitting bag.

Kebi Cedawna said...

My favorite is the KIP Bag Sock Knitting Small Batik Rain, I've always loved Batik fabrics.

alexa said...

I see now my second entry has to be separate so here it is:

Doris H said...

I would use the bag to hold my current project - knitting, quilting, or cross-stitching.
I love all the pockets!

Christina said...

Oh, and I scrapbook and the pockets would hold scissors, pens, etc. wonderfully and I could certainly find a use for the inside of the bag!

Julie said...

I think one of my two favorites are the Sock Matisse or the Tribecca

Julie said...

I would use this bag when we travel, as we live 5 and 8 hours from our hometowns. Great for carrying my projects, magazines, books and goodies to munch on.

Melissa said...

Oh yeah--and I would use it to organize my daughter's knitting stuff.

Anonymous said...

There are actually quite a few fabrics I like. The Mini Skulls N Roses, Ngorongoro, and Animal Print in Satin are my favorites.

Ashley said...

I would use it to carry my new-found hobby of knitting around. Currently I'm using an "old" purse.

BeeCee said...

My daughter (36 yrs. old) wants to learn how to knit & I'd love to teach her. She's shown no interest before, but now wants to. So I'd fill it with a lot of her grandmother's & my kntting

Bettina said...

Oooh and I would use it for all the ear warmers I've been knitting on the bus to and from work! I wear my hair up a lot, so hats don't work, but ear warmers are a great quick project to keep my forehead and ears toasty!

nwscrapmom said...

What fun little bags! I think my favorite fabric is the Amy Butler Tree Peony in Sky.

nwscrapmom said...

2nd entry ~ I would definitely use mine for knitting. I actually am in the process of teaching myself and need someplace to store my needles and yarn. Thx!

FrostedTreats said...

I love the blue floral pattern :) I would use this bag for my newly-found crochet hobby!

Carapace said...

I like the Matisse fabric! I'd use it for a sketchin' bag-- it would hold my travel journal, pencils, and all the little sticks and things that jump up and say "use me!".

Mom of Three said...

My 11 year old daughter is learning how to crochet, so I would probably give it to her.
