Anything Can Happen (cloudy day) shawl zip

  • Roomy, beautiful, with expert construction. My shawl zips perfectly fit a two or three skein project.

    A Little Skein project bag is utterly unique. Most of the fabrics we use are original and exclusive to our shop. First, we work with an illustrator to bring a particular idea to life and print the design on substantial cotton-linen fabric (similar to a decor weight). Then, we craft our project bags one at a time, with an eye for detail, and finish them by hand.

    My shawl zips are roomy and will fit three skeins, side by side, with room on top for your work-in-progress. We make shawl bags in two styles:

    • Squishy, with a fleece interfacing. This gives the bag a slightly puffy profile (like a quilted bag but without the quilt lines) and lets it gently stand open when empty, and mostly repel creases.

    • Stiff, with a firm interfacing. This bag is very crisp and easily stands open when empty. It will crease when folded, but bounces back nicely after being pressed with a hot iron.

    I don't include a wristlet handle by default but am happy to make one for you. (See the "adding a handle" tab above for more details.)

  • Shawl zips are:

    • Are approx. 13 to 14" wide and 8.5" to 9" tall, with an 8" by 5" rectangular base.

    • Crafted with fabric tabs at the ends of the zipper, made of the coordinating interior print, for a polished and adorable look.

    • Made of 100% cotton and cotton/linen fabric.

    • Made with a "word ring" that can be used as a connector for other bags or handles.

    • Machine stitched with beautiful top-stitching and fully enclosed seams.

    • Created with love in a kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and smoke-free studio. (Our beagle pup, Molly, doesn't help with sewing, but she's around the studio so if you are highly allergic, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.)

    Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so you should expect there to be some variation in fabric placement, as well as minor variations in size or shape. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Please let me know if you're not completely delighted with your purchase.

  • I don't include a wristlet handle by default. (I usually just pop my project bag into my purse, so I find a handle to be mostly extraneous.)

    If you'd like a handle, though, I'm delighted to sew one for you out of matching fabric. Wristlet handles are $5 each, and measure 9 inches long from tip to tip, with a 1 inch swivel clasp that clips onto the bag's word ring and a 6-inch fabric open loop.

    Handles are sewn to order, so if you order one, please allow a few extra days for your order to ship.

I love, love, love my beautiful "Woods of Narnia Shawl Zip". It is really well constructed and just the right size to hold my "Age of Winter Hat and Mitts"kit. I purchased the Squishy style which I prefer. The fabric is just right for the Narnia theme. I was also happy with the quick delivery and the attention to detail that goes into packing up the items I purchased. I also bought Wooly enamel pin and two of the zipper pulls, which were all delightful. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Squishy Shawl bag

Ordered my first project bag! I am so impressed with the quality of the construction, and joyful fabrics. Makes my knitting hobby even more enjoyable.

The Perfect Pouch

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a passionate knitter in possession of lonely works in progress must be in want of a project bag! This shawl zip is really a lovely size - and I love the interior fabric...books! I specifically waited to start a new shawl just so that I could store it in this bag - it's very roomy and holds everything so far, and it should hold the entire shawl once it's finished! Thank you, Little Skein, for your lovely work!

Love it!

Received my shawl zip and couldn’t be happier. It is generously sized and expertly constructed. My current project has already been transferred into it: two balls of Aran yarn, a budding shawl, and a tin of Little Skein stitch markers with plenty of room left over. Thank you, Anne!

Love, love, love this bag!

Probably my favorite project bag! The fabric is bright and cheerful and the make is exceptional! Just what I wanted and it's the right size for my shawls!
