THANK YOU

style and grace

and gents, too!

To each and every one of you who offered support, advise (you know who you are!) and for everyone who purchased a bag.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!

I appreciate your enthusiasm and words of encouragement about my work! It’s not easy to put yourself out there and I am overwhelmed with the love everyone has shown me these past few weeks.

Opening a shop has been a dream of mine ever since I fell in love with knitting.

I can’t believe it’s finally here!

I am the maker, the designer (albeit I can’t draw if my life depended on it and that’s where my hubby comes in :)) the photographer, the marketer, the copywriter, the webmaster (hubby helps there too),  the customer service representative, the accounting department, the shipper, AND a mama to 3. Phew!

This is handmade.

Thank you for supporting my small business and for allowing me to contribute to my family by pursuing something I am passionate about.

awesome

 

 

 

Zippered Project Bags

Yesterday, I shared the drawstring bags that will be listed in the shop this Sunday.

I also made these medium sized double zip project bags.  They can hold 2-3 skeins of yarn with plenty of room for your ever-growing WIP. Think shawls, shawls, shawls, baby! Or perhaps, pieces of a sweater?

It can be easily folded over to be used as a yarn bowl

or even as a clutch!

Because there have been many times since I started knitting, where the outfit called for a clutch to hold just the bare necessities – a phone, a credit card, keys and lip gloss – but we knitters have one more thing to add to that list. Les WIP 😉

The shop opens this Sunday, Nov. 12 at 2pm, EST.

Hope to see you there! 

 

 

 

 

Drawstring Project Bags

PearadiseIsland-drawstring-project_bags

Ever since I first learned to knit, I have been dreaming of making a project bag to match my aesthetic. I’ve spent countless hours designing, testing, and troubleshooting every little detail until I found the right fit.

I am and will always be a sock knitter so naturally, my first bag was designed with this in mind.

A drawstring with an outer zipper pocket for easy access to notions. (The one I carry at all times is the Silvalume Handi Tool by Susan Bates. Because when you’re a mama to tiny humans and you drop a stitch? Ain’t nobody got time to be digging in the bag for it!)

I used linen as the outer fabric and a neutral canvas for the lining. Each bag was screen-printed and sewn by me at home.

**These will be available in our shop. Our grand opening is this Sunday, November 12 at 2pm EST. I hope you’ll stop by and check it out!**
