So most of you know how I love to crochet…. I have a big deep drawer at work filled to the top with yarn. ( Yes, I know I have a problem 🙂 ) Not too long ago, I was looking for a really cute bag to carry around my crochet projects in. I then remembered how a co-worker of mine was telling me about her friend that made handmade bags.
I ended up contacting her on Facebook (BlackNook) letting her know that I was interested in purchasing a tote for my crochet projects and she asked me what type of fabric I was into. I then told her somethings that I really like, one of which included Marilyn Monroe. She ended up messaging me back after she found some fabric and I fell head over heels for it. Here is the AWESOME bag that she made me!
Here are the details of the Large Tote:
“The perfect carry-all for trips to the beach, farmer’s market, or just to use all round! The BlackNook Large Tote is designed with a flat rectangular bottom, so it won’t tip over when you set it down. It also has 2 interior pockets for your organizing needs.
The Tote bags have a magnetic closure for easy one handed access and a double pocket.
Dimensions are approx. 16″w x 12″h with a 4″ flat bottom and 26″ straps.It also has 2 interior pockets.” (BlackNook Website)
(Sorry about the lint in there, you can tell that I’ve already started using it.)
(I absolutely love this tag! I’m not taking it off. LOL)
Okay so after she received the fabric, I asked her if she had enough fabric to make me a wristlet bag so that I can carry my crochet hooks. Thankfully she did, and she was nice enough to make a wristlet as well. She even asked me how long my hooks were to ensure I ordered the right size.
Here are the details for the Small Wristlets:
“The BlackNook Small Wristlet is the ultimate sidekick to use as a wallet or an “on-the-go” purse. The wristlet strap adds security while the interior pocket provide super organization. The BlackNook Small Wristlet adds elegance and simplicity to your style which makes it destined to become your wardrobe’s next “it” piece.
Dimensions are approx. 7″w x 4-3/4″h and has an interior pocket.” (BlackNook Website)
I love how she gave the wristlet a pop of color with the inner pink lining, and my crochet hooks fit perfectly inside! There’s also a pocket inside where I keep my sewing needles.
I’ve received so many compliments about this bag. I already have in mind what my next order is going to be!
