Showing WoolNeedleThread

As the year winds down and we start to think about cozying up on the sofa with a new WIP, I’m thrilled share the WoolNeedleThread Holiday Collection with you! It’s a capsule collection of sweet winter-themed project bags, stitch markers, and handbags celebrating short days and winter joy. I hope they’ll add a touch of magic to your holiday crafting.

Why Choose a WoolNeedleThread Project Bag?

-Handcrafted Elegance: Each bag is one of a kind and meticulously handmade with love and attention to detail. Many of the holiday bags feature a bit of sparkly hand beading to brighten the darkest winter days.

-Festive Designs: Embrace the holiday spirit with our exclusive festive designs. Among the fabrics I’ve chosen are hard-to-find prints imported from Germany with gorgeously illustrated winter motifs.

-Practical and Gorgeous: I design my bags to be functional as well as beautiful. All have interior pockets, waxed bases, and handy rings for your small tools and stitch markers.

Have you ever stopped to really add up all the time it takes you to bring a project from idea to finished object? It’s a lot, even for small projects. I want every moment of that time to be joyous, right from the moment you pick up your project. Your project bag sits beside you as you work, it hangs on your arm or doorknob or sits on your desk… wouldn’t it be nice if every time you saw it you thought to yourself, “Ooh! That is so pretty!” That’s what WoolNeedleThread bags do. They’re functional, full of pockets and a stitch marker holder, with a water-resistant waxed canvas base and a closure to keep your precious projects protected. But they’re also beautiful, and each one is one of a kind, just like your projects. They’re a perfect gift for the makers in your life, including the most knit-worthy of all: YOU! There are lots of styles and sizes ready to ship today. Even better: small items like stitch marker sets are discounted with a larger order (you’ll find all the details in the product listing). Please visit my website to see what’s available — this very small, handmade business appreciates your support!

The heat has finally broken here in southeast Texas. I couldn’t be more ready! Of course I’m stash diving and planning all the sweaters I’m going to start knitting. My shop is full of gorgeous project bags for your next sweatah weathah project, too! As always, each is fully lined, has a waxed canvas base, and comes with pockets and a ring for your stitch markers and small tools. Some have drawstring closures and others have magnetic snaps, some are made with repurposed fabric samples rescued on their way to the landfill, and all of them are beautiful! Each is handmade entirely by me and ships within three business days. I’ve also made pretty stitch marker sets and adorable zipper bags — perfect for yourself or gift giving. Please come and have a look, and join my email list to have exclusive early access to new products. Happy Sweater Weather!

Is the summer heat finally breaking where you are? I can’t wait any longer for cool nights and crisp breezes — so I’ve been working with all the gorgeous fall prints for new project bags coming in my next drop. This is a really pretty group. Like all of my bags, they’re all fully lined with pockets inside. Some feature repurposed fabrics rescued from the landfill. Customers asked and I answered — you asked for bags with darker interiors and some with magnetic snap closures… as you wish! There will also be a few zipper bags and smaller bags. New products will be available to email subscribers on Sunday. Haven’t joined yet? Sign up at my website today, and you’ll be in the group getting first pick!

The sun is out — take your knitting out, too!

Personally, a shady bench at the playground is my favorite summer knitting spot. I knit, the kids wear themselves out — win-win! A sturdy project bag from WoolNeedleThread is perfect for taking your project on the road. Set your bag down on that bench, or the cafe table, or in the car, without worry. Did you not not see the coffee on the cafe table? Or the apple juice on the bench? My project bags all have waxed canvas bases for durability and water-resistance, so just wipe or dab those liquids away. Your WIP will be safe and protected inside. Each project bag has pockets inside, a ring for stitch markers and small tools, and most have drawstring closures to pack your project securely away when it’s time to go.

I have lots available on my website right now in a variety of sizes. I never make exactly the same bag twice so if there’s one you love, please don’t wait!

I absolutely love to play with color. As a kid, Colorforms — remember those?? — were one of my favorite toys. I still love playing with the wood blocks that you can arrange in an infinite variety of mosaic patterns. It was no surprise then that a huge pile of waxed canvas strips, squares, and tiny offcuts looked more like a treasure trove than rubbish to me.

I created four absolutely unique bags from the beautifully colored and textured pieces. Constructed of waxed canvas, they’re also sturdy, water resistant, and functional project bags. Each is truly one of a kind. They’ll be available to my email subscribers Friday night, June 30, at 5pm CT, and to everyone Saturday at 5pm. In addition, I’ll have other gorgeous, large project bags in this update. I really enjoyed making this group of bags and I hope you’ll love them, too.

PLEASE NOTE: my subscribers have already received their emails with links to this update; if you subscribe on 6/30, please reach out via my website contact form or Instagram DM so that I can get you a link to the subscriber-only early access!

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. Sign up for my email newsletter on my website to have the first look! While you’re there, check out the bags that are ready to ship today, including my sale section.
