I made this a while back it’s a pretty basic pattern, I had a few people say my previous pattern was difficult, I tried to make it easy but I did say it was the hardest pattern I ever made. This is simple and I apologize for the previous but i did say it was hard, so on to the info on this one!
I made this a long time ago when I use to knit more, now I knit when needed and crochet more often. It can be a basic drawstring bag I do use it as that too, I use it more as as dog food travel bag, it is not air tight so don’t leave the food for weeks. I used it for about a week at most, but it’s great for trips to keep your fur babies full and happy. You can easily add stitches and rows or subtract them. Dogs can eat directly out of the bag so there’s no need to carry around a bulky bowl, when the food starts to get low you roll down the top and they can eat from it easier. My dogs know what these bags mean so they got excited when I got them to take pictures, I have 2 small ones for treats so I can just take treats for those few dog events in town. I did duplicate stitch to make these bags really cute, the Z is my own pattern because one of my dogs names is Fairlady Z (Z for short) I need to make another one with a different letter for my other dog. You can find these charts online, many of them were found through knitting pattern central others were found through google.
If anyone has any patterns similar I’m sorry I made this years ago and it is pretty basic so it could be fairly common.
Sorry about the picture quality it was dark and my lamps aren’t the best.

It’s small enough for treats but not big enough for trips unless it’s just a day trip and you only have 1 dog. It’s pretty simple and I hope you all enjoy!
