This time of year, traveling with crafts is something we hear about (and see around us) all the time. What better way to pass the time while waiting in line, taking long flights or car trips, or enjoying the weather at the beach or by the pool?

Your project bag will hold everything you need for crafting, so take your time choosing the right one for you. Your bag will carry the patterns, tools, writing implements, yarn cutter/scissors and, of course, your yarn. Keeping everything secure and organized won’t be daunting with these tips:

Choose bags with drawstring, snap or magnetic closures. Bags like these will close and open easily for quick access, and won’t damage your yarn. Steer clear of zippers and Velcro, closures like these are notorious for snagging yarn or damaging it beyond repair.

Smaller bags will be easier to carry and manage while you travel. When you’re choosing your project, keep in mind that something smaller will fit better into a small bag and be more manageable to work on. You can always pack more yarn and projects in with your suitcase, so you can grab a new project when you arrive at your destination!
