About KellyConnorDesigns

On Etsy since 2010

Kelly Connor Designs

Kelly Connor Designs sprang into being in 2012 when my daughter and I took up knitting. On the hunt for a bag to keep our latest projects in we found that none of the knitting bags available were our cup of tea. Asking ourselves that famous question, 'How hard can it be?' (quite hard is the answer!) being a fine artist and a maker we set out to make our own.

Nine years later, Kelly Connor Designs is a mother and daughter team and we still love making contemporary, high-quality bags for knitters, crocheters and crafters.

We are excited to have recently launched our new range of products designed and made in our studios. Where we operate as close to zero waste as possible. We are evolving and we are on a journey of growing awareness. Our focus is on doing everything we can to be earth friendly. One step at a time we look for ways to work within slow fashion ethics and improve our working methods and produce beautiful bags that will last.

Our new designer bag and homeware range is eco friendly, and uses a range of certified materials, and gorgeous organic fabrics.

We love supporting your passions, creativity and making process. Thank you for letting us be part of your journey.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Please leave the name you would like on the in the box above. Ordering through the app? Leave a note with the name in the box at checkout.

If you have a question about personalisation, please message us and we'll be happy to help :)

We can print pretty much any design on any of the bag types - so if you love one of our designs but want it on our giant knitting needle bag, or our lovely roll top bag instead of a tote, just message us and we'll set up a custom listing for you.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is available and can be added at checkout. We wrap all knitting related items in our special knit-themed wrapping paper, and everything else is wrapped in brown paper and tied with a bow.

We are in the process of switching to eco-friendly packaging, including paper bags and biodegradable cellos. We are using up our old packaging at the moment so your order may arrive in the old style, but rest assured, we are making the switch.

Care instructions

Bags: Spot clean only. Please don't iron over the print.

Clothing: Wash inside out on cool/30 degrees, please don't tumble dry or iron over the print.

What are "seconds"?

Seconds are products that are not up to our high standards - there may be loose threads, a crease we can't remove, small misprints, or a problem with the print.

We sell these at a reduced rate as they are still usable and giftable and we want them to find a happy home! You can find them in our 'Sale and Seconds' section.

We would never sell anything with a major flaw like a broken zip, or a chipped mug, the flaws are purely cosmetic.
