The first photo I ever saw of these exquisite little Bento Bags — cleverly designed for carrying produce — was of apples spilling out of the natural linen one (the only fabric available at that time), and my mind’s eye instantly replaced the apples with yarn balls. I ordered two on the spot and they’ve been in constant rotation as knitting project bags ever since. But they’re also great as lunch bags, for organizing smaller items in your suitcase, lining your bread basket, or even as a reusable gift bag. I love them for how spare they are — so functional, but just as natural, unfussy and unobtrusive as you can get. And I’m so happy to finally have them available at Fringe Supply Co. I just know you’re going to love them.
Also, the coveted blue Stitch & Hammer tool pouch is back! Super quick this time, and I’ve got a few more of them on hand than usual. But still, act fast!
One other shop-related note: New to the Stockists list is Black Sheep Knitting Co. in Needham MA. If you’re in the neighborhood and looking for the Fringe totes bags or stitch markers, do drop in!
Beautiful. I just might have to grab one of these. You have the best tools and knitting goodies!
Only 1 each left of the slate ticking — in case that’s the one you’re eyeing. I’ll get more, but wanted to put that out there!
Karen, another goody added to your fine, simplisticly styled line of treasures. ♡
Thank you, Carolyn!
Those would be a REALLY great way to GIFT someone yarn!
I love everything about these bags … you’ve got such a great eye, Karen!
They are wonderful, and I agree with Kris about using them as the wrapping of any kind of gift, really. Soap, or yarn, or a knitted item, or…
There’s no such thing as too many project bags, and this one is so pretty!
I completely agree! For complicated projects that require my notebook and pencil and a printed pattern, and extra needles and so on — or especially if I’m knitting on a plane — I obviously love my custom-made project bags. But there are other times where I just really want to keep it simple — corral my yarn and WIP in as no-fuss a way as possible — these bento bags are so perfect for that. And they look great doing it!
SO pretty! Love your style, Karen…
ps. I took your tote along on the first London yarn crawl last weekend and many people commented on it and how much they love your blog… ;-)
That’s so cool — thank you, Linda!
These are absolutely adorable! You really DO rock for picking “functional” with an extremely high level of arty-ness and “coolness factor.” I LOVE my Project Bag but I can also see so many possibilities for the sweet Bento Bags. Over to the store… ;)
I love the calm simplicity of these project bags!
Received my order of bento bags and love them. They are beautifully crafted, as is the wooden gauge. Nice products, Karen, thank you!
Thank YOU, Clare — so glad you love them.
I’m going to sound like a repeat of Clare: I love my bento bag!! Thank you so much. Its sitting by my side full of yarn balls as I type… :) And the gauge ruler is so beautifully made. Ditto the stitch markers. Happy me…
Happy you, happy me.
I’ve actually crocheted a bag like this one but it had a shoulder strap. It is pretty easy to make if you get the ratio down. I love these bags. I want to break out the sewing machine and make some for the kids.
