Pattern for two knitting bags, with contents, designed to go in a dolls house. The plain knitting bag is suitable for a beginner and the other for slightly more experienced beginner/intermediate knitter.

Ability Level – Beginner to Intermediate
NOTE: Ability level relates to ability to knit in miniature, rather than ability to knit generally. If you have not worked in miniature before, start with the sides and base of the plain bag. If you feel confident knitting in this scale, you may wish to add a patterned front and back to the bag.
