  1. Project Bags from Reclaimed Fabrics and Screen Prints

    Posted on

    We’re lucky enough to live fairly near ScrapStuff – a brilliant reclaim site which finds new homes for all kinds of things and stops them from becoming landfill. You’re never quite sure what’s going to be there when you go. Our last visit was because we wanted a mannequin, and while we were there we found sample books of upholstery fabrics.

    These came home with us and have been turned into project bags. There are some gorgeous fabrics which have been embroidered. There are linens. There are silk blends. There’s a mix of more practical to utterly glamorous. As there’s only enough for one side of a bag you’ll get two colourways on most of the bags and that adds to their charm. Every bag is unique.  We’ve included fabric details with each listing so you’ll know what your fabric is made from.

    We’ve also restocked bags made with our screen printed designs. We used the last of our precious wool felt and also screen printed on linen. The bags are lined with linen too for an extra special touch.

    One thing I want from a project bag is that it’s easy to use while I’m on the go – and to help make that easier each bag comes with both a shoulder and wrist strap. These straps can be clipped on and off so you can use whatever suits you best. I know that sometimes I want my hands free for a few moments and the shoulder strap is ideal for that.

    Until midnight on the 1st of November we’ll be donating £10 for each bag sold to The Trussell Trust. They’re the people behind many of the food banks in the UK and right now we need them more than ever. We’re also donating £20 from each advent calendar sale so if you’re thinking of making a purchase now would be a great time to do so and help raise some money for a brilliant charity.

  2. Shop Update 06.02.20

    Linen Zip Pouches

    We love zip pouches. We love a cheeky print. We love linen. So our new zip pouches tick a lot of boxes for us.

    The first batch of these is ready for the shop update at 1900 this evening.

    We made these bags so we were able have exactly what we wanted. The bags are made from European linen. We’ve interfaced this to give the bags more structure and strength.

    The bags have our original screen print on the front and are blank on the back.

    We’ve used chunky metal zips and finished the bags with a solid wood tag.

    In the photo above there’s nothing in the bags – they’ll stand up happily on their own. The bags come in large and medium. The large bag will hold six 100 gram skeins of yarn and the medium bag has space for three.

    The eagle eyed amongst you might have spotted these skeins are the colours we dyed to raise money for Foodbank Australia. The skeins are close to selling out and once they’ve gone there won’t be more.

    Now that we’re in February we can add the club yarns from January to the shop.
