I bought this bag because I loved the St. Patrick's design - but I LOVE this bag because this style is perfect for taking my small projects to work to do during my lunch break! It rolls up with my sock project and fits neatly in my big purse, or I put my phone and wallet in it with my project and head to knitting lunch with my friends. I am going to order another one in this style, in a different fabric!

About

Whimzee Stitches Designs strives to create exceptional, colorful and quality accessories for knitters, crocheters and fiber artists.

Welcome to WhimzeeStitches! In my shop, you’ll find a selection of handmade knitting and craft project bags and other accessories.

My name is Rick, and I’ve loved sewing and fabric ever since I was a little kid. My mother and grandmother (or ‘Babci’, as we say in Polish) would take me to the fabric store and let me wander up and down the aisles. I was mesmerized by how many different colors, patterns, and types of fabrics were available, and I was fascinated by the process of cutting and measuring it. I learned to sew on my mother’s electric Singer and on an old treadle machine. My love of knitting is relatively new — I only picked up my first set of knitting needles in 2011, but I was immediately hooked! I began making knitting project bags for my own use, but soon all my crafting friends were commenting on them and asking for their own. I saw a way to combine my love of sewing and knitting, and WhimzeeStitches was born.

My biggest inspirations are colors, patterns, and shapes! I love selecting the fabrics that I’ll use to make my products, and that excitement fuels my business. My involvement with the knitting community also motivates me to create and perfect my products. Being part of a network of like-minded people and contributing to their own projects in some way is incredibly fulfilling. The thing I love about art is that it inspires more art — the thrill and satisfaction from completing one project automatically plants the seed for the next project.

When I’m not crafting and running my shop, I love travel and exploring all different types of art, crafts, fabric and of course, yarn. I grew up in New York and currently reside in New Orleans with my two cats.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop! I hope my products bring a smile to your face and color to your craft room!

Additional policies and FAQs
All project bags are made with quality quilting fabrics, stabilizers and clear vinyl. Bags are handmade and sewn in my smoke-free home sewing studio located in New Orleans. (NOTE: I do my best to keep my 2 indoor cats out of my sewing studio, but sometimes, they do find their way in to take an afternoon nap)
