Bag of the Week- *Summer Linens-Blackberry Crumble* Zippered Knitting Project Bag
Welcome to our Small-Batch Summer 2020 Bag of the Week Series! This week's features a trio of softly saturated linens: Buoy, Blackberry Crumble, and Umbrella Stripe. Blackberry Crumble is a yarn-dyed jammy purple, channeling the luscious, vibrant treats of late summer (think aubergines, plum jam, popsicles, and baked goods brimming with sweet berries). Each week's featured bag will be a limited, one-time run that won't be available again this summer. This week we have Blackberry Crumble in our classic Birch Bags; as well as our sweater-sized Aspens; and petite, portable Saplings.
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 Maple Tote: Our idea of the perfect carry it all bag- room for the biggest, coziest sweater projects, while tons of pockets keep you organized. The beautiful, water-resistant waxed canvas bottom wipes clean, so you never have to worry about where you put your project down when the knitting mood strikes. Zips closed with a lovely, solid metal zipper to keep your project and your valuables secure. Generous 7-8 skein size (16 inches wide, 11 inches tall when standing, with a roomy 6 inch deep gusset) easily accommodates bulky projects, or a smaller project bag (we recommend a Sapling!) and all your daily essentials.
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, Aspen, and Maple 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).
All bags are fully lined with no exposed seams. Made with high quality, sturdy linen/cotton lightweight canvas. The Aspen is lined with a heavy weight cotton canvas, with waxed canvas bottom. Notions Wallet is lined with premium quality quilting cotton. Zippers and all findings are solid metal with an antiqued brass finish. Spot clean or machine wash and lay flat to dry, iron as needed to smooth and restore shape. Maple Tote should be spot cleaned only. Some shrinking may occur on first washing.
