Showing WoolNeedleThread

There are still a few beautiful project bags made with repurposed designer home decor fabrics available. These fabrics are perfect for project bags, and not just because they keep useful fabrics out of landfills. First, they’re durable. They’ve been manufactured to stand up to the use they’d get on all your upholstered surfaces. Secondly, they have wonderful texture. Some are slubby, some have subtly metallic accents, and some have a beautiful, visible weave. Finally, the scale of the motifs means that on bags you get gorgeous little close ups, like pretty birds, watery florals, and sharply graphic swirls. Combine that with all the usual features of a WoolNeedleThread bag, such as waxed canvas bases, pockets, and beautiful handles, and you have sturdy, functional, absolutely beautiful project bags. See what’s available right now on my website.

Do you know what happens to all of those fabric samples in designer showrooms? They’re often thrown away at the end of the season. I managed to find a collection of beautiful fabrics on their way to the landfill and now they’re becoming the most beautiful project bags. Combined with a waxed canvas base so that you don’t have to worry about setting it down in your favorite coffee shop, lots of pockets, and other handy features, they’re just waiting to hold your next WIP. These are available right now. Join the email list on my website to have early access to the newest batch, coming soon. Each is one of a kind as once the sample is used, it’s gone. If you see one you love, don’t wait!

Hi there! My name’s Michelle and I am the one woman behind WoolNeedleThread. I’m a lifelong knitter and crocheter and now maker of one-of-a-kind bags and accessories. My love of fiber crafts is the “Wool” in WoolNeedleThread. I create project bags that honor the care, time, and skill we put into the work of our hands. You pour your heart and weeks, months, or even years into your projects. They deserved to be well protected and you deserve to a beautiful, functional bag to carry them in. I make project bags in a variety of shapes and sizes. Many feature premium materials like petroleum-free waxed canvas and Portuguese cork fabric. Lately I’ve been working with repurposed designer home decor fabric samples — gorgeous fabrics that were on their way to the landfill before I found them. Occasionally you’ll even find a bit of hand embroidery or beading for a truly unique work of fine craftmanship.

Decades of experience and an eye for striking combinations of color and texture go into the construction of my bags. All of my bags are fully finished, inside and out, lined, and have useful pockets. Unlike mass-produced items, I don’t offer hundreds or even dozens of the same bag. Choose your favorite and you’re not likely to ever see another just like it. I choose every fabric and make every stitch of each WoolNeedleThread bag myself – I am the “needle and thread” behind WoolNeedleThread.

My next shop update with lots of one-of-a-kind project bags will be next Friday, April 28. My email subscribers get first access to new products for 24 hours.
