Short Tote ~ Yarn Project Bag ideal for knitters, crochet and crafters!
All orders for these Totes will be posted within around 3 weeks of order due to taking a break over the Summer. From September the turnaround times will be far shorter.
Please see my blog post for more information on my approach to COVID-19.
Please do not select a Signed For / Tracked service for delivery at checkout, please only select Standard, this is due to my local post office not accepting this service and enables me to have a contactless drop off at a post box.
The Short Tote Yarn Project Bag is a great bag for knitters, crochet fans and crafters. The inside has a stitch marker keeper, clear vinyl pocket ideal for storing patterns, large fabric pocket and the opening in the lining I designed to allow pin badge backs to be kept away from bag contents plus a concealed back zip on the outside of one of the bag.
It has two leather handles made from beautiful light tan cowhide, that has been vegetable tanned and this leather will soften and age beautifully. If you prefer a Vegan and Leather Free version of this bag please drop me an email within 24 hours of placing an order and I will replace the leather handles for one made from the same canvas colour as the bag.
All the metal hardware attaching the handles on this bag is of high quality and a screw fitting meaning the leather can be changed in time if desired. The Tote is made from water resistant canvas and is fulling lined inside with a light weight canvas material in grey.
The outside back of the bag has a set in zip pocket thats ideal for storing a purse/wallet and phone.
When designing this bag, I asked myself the same question I always do when creating new products - what makes a bag become a KNITTERS and CRAFTERS bag? This thinking lead me to design various inside features:
- a clear PVC long pocket that is stitched to the inside back ideal for storing a folded pattern or needles
- a clip for stitch marker storage or for keeping keys handy
- a large inside canvas pocket ideal
- And here's a clever secret this bag has...inside the lining of the bag is an opening made with three poppers. This can be opened and it allows you to slip your hand inside the bag between the outer canvas fabric and the lining. This is so that when you want to add the super popular enamel pins and badges to decorate your bag, the backings of these are away from the contents of the bag. So the yarn and projects in the bag are not at any risk of snagging on the backings of the pins! This is an idea I designed and unveiled in December 2017 in the Canvas Cube Project Bags.
The bag measures 9in high and 12in wide with a base of 5.5in wide. The usable part of the handles (meaning measuring from the top of the canvas) is 11in meaning the bag can be carried in the hands or placed further up the forearm.
The bag comes with black zips on the outside and grey fabric lining on the inside regardless of canvas colour chosen.
Inside photos show the bag made up in Natural however these will change per canvas colour, meaning the Black Tote will have a Black Pocket and Black canvas lining on the vinyl pocket, the Red Tote will have a Red Pocket, etc .
Please keep in mind that as Canvas is a natural material, there maybe the odd slub/bump/mark/line on the fabric but this a natural element and I will always try and ensure these little marks are on the base of the bag. Although when the opening inside the lining is open, there will be raw seams of the bag exposed but once the poppers are fastened these will no longer be on show. The leather handles are a natural material and may have a few little marks however this is completely natural and doesn't take away from the beauty of the handles.
Please keep in mind I photograph everything in natural light but colours appear slightly different due to your monitor settings, etc.
