Holiday Gift Ideas: Bags & Needle Cases

The EcoBag is potentially the ultimate project tote (or carry-on luggage). The extended zipper opens down the width of the bag for easy access to entire bag interior. Bags are lined in coordinating solid nylon fabric. Bag bottoms feature large rubber mat corners. Handles are just long enough to slip onto a shoulder. The feature we like best is the zippered edges have metal support so the bag keeps its shape when reaching inside and doesn’t droop when carried. Bag comes with a sturdy, adjustable nylon shoulder strap. 18″ x 10″ x 12″. 

This amazingly lightweight tote features aluminum exterior structure and is completely collapsible. Originally designed as a market tote, it is also a super versatile project tote. The metal structure keeps access to goods inside immediate. Made of durable nylon in great prints; self-fabric lined. Excellent quality. Exterior pocket. 18″ x 10″ x 9.5″.  $32.97

Cleo stands on her own with pockets, pockets, pockets – four exterior and two interior. She won’t let you down and fall over. She’s a caddy and not a shoulder bag. Don’t try to throw her over your shoulder, she prefers to swing next to you. The Cleo Yarn Caddy is perfect for a medium size project. We threw this bag in a front loading washing machine and let it air dry. It looks fantastic! It is a bit softer, but it is still stiff enough to stand up. The inside includes a zip pocket and an open pocket for smaller tools. 8″ wide, 12.5″ high (handles not included).

Haven’t made the decision yet whether you like straights, circulars or double points? Maybe you like them all and want them in one case. This tri-fold case includes nine pockets in the center for circulars. The outer flaps hold 18 straights and/or double points. We know this is a common design, but our case holds more than most cases and it is far prettier! The case is tall enough for those needles that insist on being a bit too tall to fit in any other case. There are no numbers like many of our other cases so you’ll need to be a little bit organized or keep a needle gauge in the case. Oh, right, there is also a zip pocket for stitch markers or a piece of chocolate. Fold it up and tie it in a bow (refer to your mother for bow tying instructions).
