❦ Limited Edition POP Thru the Parks Yarn Bowl Pre-Orders Open 12/8 ❦

THE BACKSTORY:
That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection has been designed to tie in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project, which has offered four special colorways in 2017, each by a different indie dyer.

This item will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 pieces is sold out, whichever comes first. (Please note: previous releases have sold out in as little as 1.5 hours.) All items in the collection feature delightful fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s “Soda Nation” Collection; the December bowls have pumpkin-ish lining with wee yellow dots.

This is the final item in this collection. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and will check back in 2018 for more limited edition fun!

ITEM #4:
Here’s one of my POPular yarn bowls, released to coincide with DuckDuckWool’s eye-popping Glaciers & Wildflowers colorway. These foldable, unbreakable yarn bowls offer a safe place for your yarn as well as a cozy repository for your knitting when you set it aside.

Go ahead, curl up on the couch with your knitting — you can put this soft bowl anywhere, without worrying about it breaking. When the dog jumps up and your bowl goes rollin’ … phew … no broken crockery to cry over! (Plus, customers tell me they use these bowls to keep all manner of household items tidy, from rolled up hand towels to remote controls, from last night’s jewelry and pocket change to dinner rolls.)

ORDERING INFO:
• This Limited Edition item is $32, plus $4 s/h (Sorry, US only.)
• Pre-orders open at 9:00 a.m. EDT, December 8, at ThatCleverClementine.com.
• Order period closes when 24 bags sell out, no later than midnight EDT December 22, 2017.

• All items are made by me, in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

❦ Limited Edition POPpy Wedge Bag: Pre-Orders open October 6 ❦

The Back Story:

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection was designed to tie in with Indie Untangled’s Knitting Our National Parks Project. I will offer an exclusive yarny accessory to coincide with the release of each 2017 yarn installment.

The item will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 pieces is sold out, whichever comes first. (Please note that all previous releases have sold out in twelve hours.)

All items in the collection feature delightful fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s “Soda Nation” Collection; the October bags have cheerful yellow swirl lining.

Here’s What’s New!

I’m pleased to introduce the third item in this collection, That Clever Clementine’s POPpy bag, released to coincide with Jill Draper’s eye-popping “Walk in the Park” and “Desert Dusk” colorways. My zip pouches are always popular, but this one is extra special — I’m making sweet little Pop Bottle zipper pulls for you!

In addition to holding small-to-medium size knitting/crochet projects, folks say they use these bags to tote all kinds of things — cosmetics, jewelry, phones, and other small items. This one is a terrific size, spacious and yet not too large, and sturdily interfaced. I think you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag, so if you’re going to pop for one new yarny accessory this month, I hope you’ll consider this one.

This Limited Edition item is $36, plus $4 s/h (sorry, US only).

Ordering Info:
• Pre-orders open at 9:00 a.m. EDT, October 6, at ThatCleverClementine.com.
• Order period closes when 24 bags sell out, no later than midnight EDT October 20, 2017.
• Orders will ship on or before November 22, 2017.

The Fine Print:
• This bag is slightly wedge-shaped, so a bit wider at the top than the bottom. At the top, it measures about 11″ wide; it is about 9.5″ tall (28 cm x 24 cm) when measured flat. The bag’s base is about 3.5″ (8.25 cm) deep.
• As with all handsewn items, please expect some minor variations. In particular, print placement will vary, so you will not get the exact assortment of pop caps you see here.
• All items are made by me, in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

❦ Limited Edition SNAPdragon Pouch: Pre-Orders open August 4 ❦

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection was designed to tie-in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project. Debut of a new exclusive yarny accessory will coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). These items will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 items is sold out, whichever comes first.

All items in the collection will feature the same wonderful exterior fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation Collection. The August pouches have cheerful green “Spring Spin” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

I’m pleased to introduce the second item in this collection, my SNAPdragon pouch, released to coincide with Pigeonroof Studios’ eye-popping “Mountains and Valleys” colorway. This bag is available for pre-order starting August 4; you will receive your bag in late September. If you’re going to pop for one new yarny accessory this month, here’s one to make your eyes pop!

SNAPdragon has always been one of my most popular items; people tell me they use it for knitting notions, cosmetics, jewelry, phones, and other small items. I’ve even known people who use it as a mini-project bag — I haven’t tried it myself, but I’m told it will hold half a skein, caked up, and a sock work-in-progress.

This eye-catching little bag will fit easily into your purse, totebag, or larger project bag, and I’m sure you’ll find many uses for it. You’ll be surprised at its capacity, and at just $15 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag!

It’s also lovely for anyone with limited mobility, as there are no zippers or buttons to fumble with. Simply tug gently on the ribbon pulls, and the pouch snaps right open.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 items, available for pre-order August 4, 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
• Order period closes when bags sell out, no later than midnight Eastern Time, August 18, 2017. (Please note, previous round of items sold out in twelve hours.)
• Orders will ship on or before September 30, 2017.
• Sorry, for this round, USA shipping only.

POP Thru The Parks!

❦ Limited Edition Wristlet Project Bag: Pre-Orders open June 16 ❦

I designed this zipper wristlet pouch to tie in to Indie Untangled’s Knitting Our National Parks project, which will offer four special yarns in 2017, each by a different indie dyer. I will offer an exclusive yarny accessory, available for purchase separately, to coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). Each offering in this collection will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 items is sold out, whichever comes first.

All items in the collection will feature this wonderful fabric, part of Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation collection, on the exterior. The June zipper bags have cheerful Soda Pop Top “Sunshine” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

For openers, here is one of my most popular bag styles, offered to coincide with Backyard Fiberworks eye-poppingly beautiful colorway North Cascades Night. If you’re going to pop for one new project bag this month, I think you’ll love this one!

This is a great one-skein project bag, but it’s also sized just right as a “grab-and-go” wristlet purse! It will hold some cash, your phone, keys, lipgloss, tissues, and a bit more. Pull it out of your tote bag, put on your shades, put the top down on the convertible, and let’s blow this pop stand! At just $22 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag, it’s perfect for summer excursions thru the parks, and everywhere.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 bags, available for pre-order starting June 16, 2017.
• Order period closes no later than midnight EST June 30, 2017
• Orders will ship on or before July 31.

Flash Sale: Five Hundred Sales or Bust!

Okay, so here’s the deal. My Etsy shop is perilously close to 500 sales (that’s just in the Etsy shop; that number doesn’t include trunk shows, festivals, etc.)

I’m eager to get to that milestone — because once that happens, I have some giveaways planned. And I want to get to that fun part — don’t you?

So, help me reach the 500 mark … get 15% off shopwide … and then, get ready for some giveaways from That Clever Clementine!

SALE DATES: June 5 – June 10, 2014; $20 minimum purchase. Coupon code: “IndieUntangledJune”

On your mark, get set, go …. 500 sales, here I come!!

A Flash Sale With Plenty of Strings Attached!

Everyone always talks about “no strings attached” like that’s necessarily a good thing.

But when it comes to project bags, I like mine to stay securely closed — and that means good strings must be attached!

So yes, indeed, this Flash Sale has plenty of strings attached! From now until Monday, every drawstring project bag in my Etsy shop is 10% off — if you know the special coupon code!

That means that the Belles, the Pandoras, and the Cindy Sues are all discounted; minimum purchase of $30 applies.

Sale starts: Right Now!
Sale Ends: Monday, 4/21/14
Coupon Code: IndieUntangledApril

Next Etsy Shop Update? Monday, April 7 – 3 p.m. EST

Whoa Nellie, there are just so many new things to show you this week, just in time for my next shop update!

New listings will include a smattering of Snapdragons, drawstring or loop-handled project bags in a few different sizes, both Lily and PeeWee zip bags, and some new unbreakable, reversible fabric yarn bowls.

Also, I’d like to invite you to come on over and “like” That Clever Clementine on Facebook—sometimes there are “Facebook fans only” treats, like giveaways or discounts.
