If you’ve had a chance to poke around That Clever Clementine’s Etsy shop, you know she makes some super cute bags and notions pouches. A couple of years ago, when I was in Maryland for the Verdant Gryphon open house, I was lucky enough to get a peek at Vicki’s fabric collection, which, as she so accurately described, is pretty extensive. My eyes darted in amazement over the piles of brightly-colored cloth covering one of her guest rooms. I ended up having her make me this Snapdragon notions pouch, because I thought the fabric illustrated my work as a writer. I also later purchased some items made with fabric Vicki found on Spoonflower, a cool site that also lets you custom design your own fabric and wallpaper.
After I worked with my designer on the logo for Indie Untangled, an amazing idea came to me: I could design fabric with the yarn ball icon on Spoonflower, and have Vicki turn it into bags to celebrate the launch. So, that’s exactly what we did! This is a meaningful partnership for me, and I think it shows just how special and supportive the knitting/crafting world can be.
Over the next two weeks, you’ll have two opportunities to win the larger Pandora Poke, a drawstring bag with a nifty swivel hook that you can clip onto your keys or scissors, or that you can use as a yarn guide (I often clip the bag to my jacket so I can knit while waiting for the subway), and the Snapdragon notions pouch.
Here are the details:
