Mystery project bag

  • A surprise knitting project bag: handpicked for you, wrapped with love, and ready to delight.

    If you like surprises, let me delight you with a surprise package of Little Skein inspiration. I love putting together surprises and will happily choose a project bag for you in the size of your choice, wrap it up in an extra-special way, with a treat on top. If you've ordered from me before, I'll look at your order history and send you something that I think you'll love. If you're a new customer, I'll choose from some of my best-selling designs.

    As with all surprises, I can't guarantee what you'll get (or that it will become your next favorite project bag), but I can guarantee that you'll get a beautifully crafted, handmade project bag that is full of our Little Skein signature details. No seconds, no funky sizing -- just one of our fully handmade project-ready bags. And, because we're choosing for you, you'll get a sizeable discount from our regular prices.

  • Drawstring project bags:

    - Are approx. 10" to 11" tall and 10" wide when the bag is flat, with a 5" by 5" square base. Please note: custom-printed fabrics are a wee bit narrower than commercial fabrics, so these bags have a slightly smaller base, approximately 4.5" by 4.5"

    Sock zip bags:

    - Are approx. 10" to 10.5" wide and 7.5" to 8" tall, with an 7" by 3.5" rectangular base
    - Have fabric tabs at the ends of the zipper, made of the coordinating interior print, for a polished and adorable look
    - Have a satin ribbon zipper pull

    Shawl zip bags:

    - Are approx. 13 to 14" wide and 8.5" to 9" tall, with an 8" by 5" rectangular base
    - Have fabric tabs at the ends of the zipper, made of the coordinating interior print, for a polished and adorable look
    - Have a satin ribbon zipper pull

    All of our project bags:
    - Are made of 100% cotton or cotton/linen fabric
    - Include a "word ring" that can be used as a connector for other bags or handles.
    - Are machine stitched with beautiful top-stitching and fully enclosed seams
    - Are 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.

Love the mystery!

Wow! I love my Mystery bag! I love the idea of getting a surprise! The not knowing what you are going to get until you open the package is not something I've been a fan of until now! The bag I received was beautifully made! The fabric is adorable and I will do it again! Thank you so much Anne!
