Bold & Brave 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.

La Belle et le Bete shawl zip

Color was more purple then blue which I love. Interior fabric is lovely. I ordered my the squishy with a handle. Generous size will be great for some of the larger shawls
