Yasmin also takes good care of communication, would definitely recommend for friends!
This gray one is my favourite!
Thank you so much! Super nice packaging and an excellent bag, already holds a spindle project. :)
I have been an avid knitter, crocheter, seamstress, crafter all my life and can't do with out my "sheer bliss" of knitting, sewing and just having fun being creative. I grew up in England, Great Britain where my Nan and Mum always knit, and on my insistence, taught me to knit, sew and crochet. My creativity never left me and so, I went to art school in England, and after graduating, I worked in the Graphic Design field for many years, in London, England and then later in Los Angeles, California and now my family and I live in Wimberley, Texas.
I love fabrics, yarn, textiles and everything vintage. When I walk into a yarn shop or fabric shop, I actually get butterflies and goosebumps because I am so excited about all the colors and textures and my mind buzzes with ideas on what to create with all these goodies.
I am always on the look out for vintage items to decorate our home with, I love to have vintage fabrics, trims, yarns and patterns around me. I am very lucky to live in Wimberley, Texas which has a treasury of vintage stores and beautiful countryside for inspiration.
My studio, is my sanctuary, full of modern, top of the line, high tech industrial sewing machine(s), irons, pressing machines, industrial rotary cutters, materials, computers. I only use the best fabrics, industrial thread and materials for all the knitshearbliss items. But I still have my vintage items around me, which I love for inspiration and decor. When I do take a break. My knitting and current books I'm reading are near my studio comfy chair, which is covered in a modern quilt I made, and patchwork cushions. My eclectic music plays softly in the background and the British BBC Radio, music and classic book dramas are heard through the internet to set the mood. When I look up from my sewing machine, through the window, I see the trees, the deer, birds and their songs and squirrels collecting food. It is quite breathtaking.
I have been a buyer on Etsy for years, and still do support Etsy Sellers. I began to sell my Handmade Knitting Bags, (that I use daily for my own projects) on the encouragement of my friends and family. My store expanded from Project Bags and and now I create Knitting and Crochet accessories I hope you like them.
All items are made in a non smoking (vintage style) studio, from start to finish by me, and me alone, I sew every single day and I really, do, LOVE it!!!

To see the fabric I have available on hand in my inventory, please choose fabric from here
OR you may choose to customize your fabric here
I will confirm if I have enough fabric for your order.
Fabric placement and measurements may vary slightly from description as each item is handmade individually.
SLIGHT DESIGN VARIATIONS FROM PHOTO
Each item is hand made, and may vary from the pictures listed, only because each item is created from scratch and sewn individually. At all times I am doing my best to create your item to the best of my ability and your treasure may look a bit different from the listing picture. For instance, buttons, loops, pockets, lining shades, fabric placement etc.
I try really hard to depict all fabric colors accurately, but please understand that all monitors are different (especially laptops!), and colors may vary a bit.
If you find fabric on sale or like some fabric you found. Please don't send me your personal fabric to create something with. I do not work with this fabric.
ORDERING as a GIFT
I can ship directly to the recipient! Just please leave me a message in "notes to seller" at checking out with a note letting me know it is a gift with the correct shipping address. I also will gift wrap and add a note card at no extra cost.
SHIPPING and RECEIPT
I wrap and seal every order in a plastic and wrap in white (no dye) tissue paper so not to stain your item. I do my best to carefully wrap your order and I ship in a tear proof envelope. You may receive your bag a little crumpled in the shipping process. Please revive your item by using a steam iron and steaming it back into shape.
CARE OF YOUR ITEM
I do not recommend washing or spot cleaning as some fabric dyes may bleed, or shrink. Some of the items I create I use interfacing, I find that washing takes away the stiffness of the item. I suggest professionally dry cleaning your hand made treasure. Hand or machine wash at your own risk.
COMMUNICATION and POSITIVE FEEDBACK
I love to hear from you when you receive your order. I love to receive your lovely comments and positive feedback. If you are not happy, please contact me FIRST to resolve. Please don't leave negative feedback. YOU are important to me. I do try my best to respond to all messages. If you don't hear from me, then I did not receive your message.
*****Positive feedback is always appreciated :-)
