This bag is ideal for holding knitting, crochet and sewing projects.
Sewn from a mixture of predominantly blue 100% cotton fabrics in polka dot, striped, floral and haberdashery themes. Fully lined in 100% unbleached cotton fabric. The wide opening and light-coloured interior makes it easy to see and find the contents of the bag. The project bag is constructed with quilt wadding to provide body and durability. The bag has a flat bottom and can stand on its own or fold flat for storage. The bag will easily hold two 100g skeins of medium weight yarn, a pattern and notions.

Sewing with leftovers, remnants, seconds and repurposed fabrics I aim to ensure no scrap is left behind. The tiniest scraps I have left are incorporated into quilts, used to tie parcels and attach labels. No two items are exactly alike but you can often see scraps of the same fabric incorporated into other products I make, using up every last piece. Cotton is a precious resource, whilst it has many positive properties, being biodegradeable and compostable, the crop needs a lot of water. This is why I am so committed to using fabric that might end up in landfill, there is often a great deal of useful life left in a textile.
