Canvas Cube Project Bag sewing pattern
Simply click on the image above to be taken over to our (old!) Etsy shop to take a look at and purchase our new sewing pattern!
15 pages of pattern with each step explained, not because it's hard to make (it's actually a really fun project!) but because we want to be totally clear and for it to be easy to follow for any level of sewing skills.
Please check out our Blog for the reasons why we've popped this into the Etsy store rather than this site.
Gift Certificates now available!
Gift Cards are now available for purchasing! Ideal for purchasing as a gift or treating yourself at a later date.
Simply add to cart and check out as normal, you'll then receive an email with a code to use against your purchases at a later date or to pass on to someone as a gift.
Knitters Carry All Backpack Original now available new 'Light' version
THE project bag! Perfect for taking out and about, using at Yarn Festivals and taking to Knit Nights. Designed and introduced July 2018, this is our most poplar bag!
This Backpack is full of design features perfect for any crafter...made from waterproof canvas, adjustable straps, leather grab handle (this can be replaced with fabric if you prefer), inside built in zip notions pouch and project bag to separate project from bag contents, clear plastic pocket, stitch marker holder, opening in the lining to allow pin badges to be added with backings touching bag contents and back zip for keeping valuables safe.
Due to popular demand to make a slightly different design, the Backpack is now available to order in a Light version....the outside look is exactly the same but it comes completely empty on the inside without any of the extra components such as the pockets and built in notions pouch.
All thimble and thread make products are available Leather Free!
If it is a made to order item simply email within 24 hours of placing an order letting us know you'd prefer leather free and we can discuss what you'd like it replacing with (canvas, webbing, etc). If there's an item you've seen thats already made but uses leather then drop us an email and we can either alter the item or make another for you.

All products are handmade by Tracy in our new Studio at our commercial premises in the Nottinghamshire countryside
We have a new Blog!
