Bag of the Week- *Juliet* Zippered Knitting Project Bag
Welcome to our Small-Batch Summer 2020 Bag of the Week Series! I saved one of my absolute favorites for last- Juliet! Absolutely bursting with late summer blooms, Juliet is a beautiful juxtaposition of fresh summer pinks and mint green with autumnal orange, mustard, and terracotta. So pretty and so perfect for this moment at the very beginning of autumn! Each week's featured bag will be a limited, one-time run that won't be available again this summer. This week we have Juliet in our classic Birch Bags; as well as our sweater-sized Aspens; petite, portable Saplings; and Notions Wallets for stashing your most used tools; along with all three of our most popular classic project bag styles!
The Birch Bag: Simple, natural, and sophisticated, the Birch Bag is our ideal project bag, made with soft, sturdy lightweight linen/cotton canvas and packed with clever features designed specifically with fiber artists in mind. Roomy 4-5 skein size (13.5 inches wide, 8 inches tall when standing, with a roomy 5 inch deep gusset) accommodates most projects, but is still compact enough to fit within a larger bag or purse when traveling. Its bigger than it looks inside ;)
The Aspen: Tall, sturdy, and packed with pockets, the Aspen Bag is a perfect cross between our signature Birch Bag and our bigger, take-everywhere Maple Tote. It's a sweater knitter's dream project bag! Generous 7-8 skein size (14 inches wide, 12 inches tall when standing, with a roomy 5 inch deep gusset) accommodates the biggest, coziest projects. The tall but narrow shape keeps it compact enough to fit inside a larger carryall for travel.
The Sapling: A petite version of our classic Birch Bag, the Sapling has the same clean, natural style with a smaller footprint. Perfect for 1-2 skein size (11.5 inches wide, 6 inches tall when standing, with a 4 inch deep gusset) accommodates most smaller projects, and fits easily within a larger bag or purse when traveling. (It's made for tucking inside an Aspen or Maple Tote!) It's small but surprisingly roomy inside :)
Birch, Sapling, and Aspen all feature a zippered exterior pocket, and our signature interior magnet snap system that:
-Protects your yarn from zipper snags
-Creates 2-3 yarn guides for colorwork (with no cutting necessary to free your yarn!)
-Creates roomy side pockets to keep larger notions, extra needles, hand cream, etc from getting tangled up in your project
-Keeps your knitting in place with the top open for knitting on the go
The Notions Wallet: A sturdy canvas double zippered wallet that does double duty holding everything you need to take your life and your crafting on the go. Twin zippered compartments give plenty of space for a smartphone, daily essentials, and all your crafty notions! Folds up and snaps in place with super easy, strong magnetic snaps to stay compact and function as a mini clutch. D-rings both inside and out can attach your keys, stitch markers, or a wrist strap! Approximately 8" wide by 4" high when folded (8" x 8" unfolded, with two 4" x 8" compartments).
Classic Project Bags:
The Shawl Wedge (formerly TALL): Approximately 11 inches wide x 8 inches tall with a 3.5 inch boxed depth. Accommodates three-four 100 gram skeins of yarn, perfect for a large shawl, baby sweater, or two-at-a-time socks.
The Drawstring Accessory Pouch (formerly MEDIUM): Approximately 10" wide by 9" high when open with a 4" boxed depth. Contrast bottom is interfaced with fusible fleece to keep it standing, but still easy to close. Fold down the top for a soft but stable yarn bowl! Accommodates two-three 100 gram skeins of yarn, perfect for sock and shawl projects.
The Sweater Wedge (formerly EXTRA LARGE): Approximately 16" wide by 11" high with a 3" boxed depth. Interfaced with fusible fleece for structure. Accommodates eight-ten 100 gram skeins of yarn, perfect for sweaters, blankets, or corralling all your smaller projects!
