A beautifully crafted, oh so practical, companion for your favorite knitting chair: the sweater bucket.
I demand a lot from my sweater bucket bags. They have to be classic and stylish enough to become a regular part of your living room decor (or wherever your favorite knitting chair might be). They need to close at the top to keep small hands (or paws) out of your knitting. They have to hold a lot of knitting -- yarn, works in progress, notions pouch, and more. And, they have to stand upright when full and also squish down when you want to store it.
It took a little while for me to find the perfect combination of fabric weight, interfacing and size to meet this very tall order, and I'm so happy with the final result!
The Little Skein sweater bucket is hand-crafted out of a full yard of my signature cotton-linen fabric, or a Japanese cotton-linen. It is then interfaced with a fleece lining, which gives it a soft and slightly squishy feeling. When full, the bag will neatly stand up on its own, and when empty, it will flop down for easy storage.
The best part of the bag is the top: it is fully lined with a beautifully-coordinated cotton drawstring that cinches shut to protect your knitting. There are sturdy carrying handles on the side, should you want to carry your bag, but I hope, like mine, yours will become a regular fixture next to your knitting chair.
About this particular listing:
- Exterior fabric: Prairie Dreams cotton-linen fabric (Little Skein exclusive)
- Interior fabric: Coordinating organic quilting cotton
The pictured yarn and accessories aren't included, but you can see that this bag holds a lot. It's pictured with 20 (!) skeins of bulky weight yarn, with room for more.
My sweater buckets are:
- Are approx. 14" wide, 9" deep, and 8 " tall
- Are made of 100% cotton and cotton/linen fabric
- Cinch shut with a grosgrain ribbon and cord lock
- Have 2" wide fabric carrying 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.
