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.

Washington, DC (AKA Chocolate City), is bursting with Cherry Blossoms. Cherry blossom trees were first donated to United States as a gift of friendship from the Japanese people in 1912. Each year, the cherry blossoms bring visitors to the Tidal Basin to see the blooms at their peak. Now you can bring the blooms to your stash.

AT Haynes House Yarns was captivated by this beauty and created the Cherry Blossom Chocolate City colorway in celebration of this yearly explosion of cherry blossoms. Each of our colorways come with a story:

AHHY Colorway Story: This colorway is in honor of the cherry blossom trees in Washington, DC, also known as “Chocolate City.” Cherry and chocolate make a delicious colorway.

This colorway is available in the shop until the last day of the Cherry Blossom Festival, April 16th. We have both Ready to Ship and Dyed to Order options. And if you like to have your yarn match your project bag, check out our Knot Your Bag from Uncle Brian’s Bags.

Add this beautiful, blooming yarn to your stash before April 16.

We are hugely proud to have our yarn featured in Aimee Gille’s latest book, Neons and Neutrals. We have kits for the gorgeous pattern, Wervel, which features our yarn. We worked very closely with the designer, Maaike van Geijn to come up with a gorgeous palette for the kits. There are kits for the yoke only, allowing you to used stash yarn for the body as well as sweater kits, which include yarn for the body as well.

Preorders are currently open. We have 30 bases available, ranging from fingering to worsted.

We have had a full restock of Chiaogoo needles and have added shorties to our range, available as 9″ fixed needles and sets. They are great for sleeves, socks or any other small-circumference circular knitting.

We also had a full restock of Muud bags. The ever-popular Saturn XL is back along with others, and we’ve added a new style.

Making Memories, a gorgeous book of children’s knitting patterns is now available to preorder. Our yarn is featured on two patterns and we are happy to advise on yardage, should you wish to order yarn with it.

Well, it’s snowing here again in Wisconsin and has us wanting all the cozy things. It seems like we have so many projects half started — how about you? Luckily, there are new project totes in the shop perfect for lifting the mid-winter spirits. We have large Aspen totes for your sweater projects, Willow or Juniper bags for your shawl WIPs, Sapling pouches to keep notions organized, the list goes on. There’s even a few self care gift boxes still available so you can treat yourself to a cup of tea and light a relaxing candle while you work on all those projects. Use the coupon code SPRINGFLING until March 13th to receive 15% off shop wide. Then join us by the fire as we knit and watch the snow fall while staying cozy.

The event is being organized by Mary of 29 Bridges Studio and Valerie, also known as the Knitting Fairy Godmother. Tickets range in price from $5-$20 and are timed to avoid overcrowding.
