*Heart and Soul*- A Collaboration with Beach House Knits and Traveling Yarn: Zippered Knitting Project Bag- *PREORDER-SHIPS IN 4-6 WEEKS*
To celebrate the release of Beach House Knit's gorgeous new Heart and Soul shawl pattern (on Tuesday, March 30th) we've designed a sweet set of Signature bags to celebrate! The Heart and Soul bags feature a screen-printed wildflower design on richly textural yarn-dyed linen. The soft browns and pinks complement the lovely colorway Jill used in the sample, dyed by Traveling Yarn! We will be hosting a Heart and Soul knit-along in April! You can also preorder a Heart and Soul yarn kit from Traveling Yarn in the original Belladona or the colorway of your choice.
Bags will be made-to-order in your choice of style; they will ship in 4-6 weeks. Coordinating yarn and pattern are not included.
I recommend our Birch or Aspen styles for the Heart and Soul shawl; the Birch Bag fits 4 full 100g skeins and a project comfortably- it will easily hold your growing shawl and the yarn cakes you are currently using, and is small enough to fit in a larger tote bag. The Aspen will fit all 7 skeins and your project with room to spare- perfect if you prefer to cake up all your yarn and keep it together from the start.
Available on 3 of our Signature Bag styles: our classic Birch Bags; sweater-sized Aspens; and petite, portable Saplings; as well as Notions Wallets for stashing your most used tools.
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).
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.
