This bag features:

* beautiful butterflies on the outside;
* a textured warm pumpkin cotton lining;
* ~our favourite~ a large four-button closure to match the butterfly wings;
* an individual hand-blended lavender sachet** to keep your projects smelling lovely.

Knitters ourselves, we designed these bags to the needs of our craft:

* SNAG FREE: the button closure allows yarn to carry easily between the buttons, so there is no worry about the snags or catches (or worse: breakages) that you might risk with a zipper;
* SECURE: the four buttons hold close tightly so you know your ball or cake won't start flying all over the place and your needles and notions will stay put to while you're on the go;
* SNUG, BUT GENTLY SO: the round base is a perfect resting place for yarn cakes or wound balls, yet still leaves room for them to manoeuvre while you're working with the yarn;
* SHAPELY: the tapered 'bucket' shape seems to grow with your project, so there is always plenty of space as your cardigans/jumpers/blankets/large impressive throws get bigger and you need to carry more yarn!

Approx. measurements:

10 1/2 inches (h) x 9 1/2 inches (w)

We might call them Project Bags, but really these bags are just the right size for keeping all the things you want to reach in a hurry safe and separate from the flotsam and jetsam in your bag or purse. A mini purse within your purse!

The yarn pictured is the wonderful Beloved (100% superwash BFL, 400 m/100 g) and comes from our lovely friend Sweet Clement Yarns. It and the needles shown in the pictures are not included, but if you'd like a skein of your own, you can find Sweet Clement Yarns right here on Etsy:

** PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES!! The project bags are stored separately to the lavender sachets for this very reason. We make our sachets to order for freshness and will happily make up a sachet with a different herbal blend. Our other blends include rosemary and lemon; lemon, cloves and cinnamon; and clove and cinnamon. Convo us with requests!
