Fed up of boring frumpy knitting bags? Well VLL has an alternative option for you. Made from funky fabrics just like our fabulous totes, this knitting bag was designed in collaboration with one of the most experienced knitters I've ever met. She told me what she liked in a knitting bag, what she hated. And I came up with the VLL knitting bag!
This bag is made out of a heavy cotton linen mix fabric, 80% cotton, 20% linen, giving it a very luxurious and heavyweight feel to it. The fabric is by Lecien from their A Girl's story featuring Alice in Wonderland. I ship this fabric in directly from Japan. The black tossed Alice is used for the outer side panels, the newspaper print in white, featuring quotes from the Lewis Carroll book is used for the gusset surrounding the side panels, handles & tabs. Inside, the bag is fully lined with a black and white polka dot fabric.
Both the bag and lining are interfaced, to give it strength and durability so you can happily stuff it with all your knitting bits and bobs. There is a set of 3 internal pockets running the length of one side of the lining, and a Vintage Lynndy Loo label on the other side. The bag is securely closed with a heavy duty zip in pink and a charm attached to the zipper pull, as well as having a zipper tabs at either end of the zip to hold onto when opening and closing the bag. The handles are triple stitched into the seams giving you strength to carry all your wares. I have a couple of clients who have actually purchased these as handbags!
The bag dimensions are as follows:
Width of gusset at zip 10.5cms approx Width of gusset on base 13cms Width of side panel at top 46cms approx Width of side panel at base 49cms approx Length of base 50cms approx Height of bag 20.5cms approx Handle height above top of bag 12.5cms approx Length of handle 33cms approx Length of zip 60.5cms approx
Each cotton print is washed prior to being used in the manufacturing, meaning that you can wash your tote without fear of shrinkage. If you spill anything on it or you simply want to freshen it up you can put it through the washing machine on a 40 degree wash, let it dry, iron it on a fairly hot iron setting & your bag will look as good as new.
These bags are made to order by me in my workroom in the UK, so your order will take between 14 days to 21 days to dispatch, depending upon how busy I am at the time.
AT BUSIER PERIODS SUCH AS CHRISTMAS I WILL DISPATCH YOUR ORDER ON THE SCHEDULED SHIP BY DATE SO ORDER EARLY AS DEMAND IS VERY HIGH AND I AM THE ONLY PERSON PRODUCING THESE ITEMS.
