For years now, I've had my set of interchangeable needle tips, cables and the bits that go with them, in the cheap and nasty flat plastic case they were in when I bought them. I finally decided that it was time to make a proper bag and get organised!
It took me a few attempts to get the bag exactly as I wanted it, with the right features in the right places and everything to the right dimensions, but I'm pretty confident now that my design will work for most knitters. I truthfully didn't intend to be able to keep my roll of DPNs in that bag as well, but I figured that it was an awesome coincidence that they fit in there perfectly and, as I didn't have a proper bag or case for those either, what a win!
I'm offering these bags in several different designs using great quality cotton prints, and linen and cotton solids for the interiors. This one is made with a fun Cotton and Steel print from the SS Bluebird collection, featuring raccoons in either blues and reds, or greys and reds.
The bag has 2 sets of slip pockets for needle tips - one on each side. One of them is 2.5" / 6.25cm tall and the other is 3.5" / 9cm, which is perfect for both short and longer tips. Each pocket has 11 slots - 5 for the slimmer tips, 5 for the fatter ones and, finally, a larger slot that you can use for your really chubby tips, or maybe for other notions or tools you like to keep together. On the side with the shorter pocket, there's also a generously sized zip pocket, perfect for keys, connectors and end caps to be tucked away safely. ** Please note that the height of the bag allows for storage of standard length tips of 4.5". If your tips are longer, please send me a custom request and I'll make a taller bag for you. **
You can see the dimensions of the bag in last photo. My roll of DPNs measures 8.5" / 22cm in length and the same in circumference, which will give you a good idea of whether yours will fit into the bag as well as your interchangeables. The inside and outside of the bags are interfaced for structure and longevity, and I've also added a layer of fleece to the outside to lend a little protection to the contents. I've added the main zip on top in a way that means that the bag opens right up to allow you easy access to the contents - do be aware though that this creates small openings at each side of the zip, as you can see in the photos. Finally, I've added a fabric loop to the outer in case you want to add a wristlet strap, and there's another one inside the bag, which you may find useful to clip things to that you don't want to slosh around inside.
As with all my pieces, I'm happy to make you a bag in the fabrics of your choice, as long as they're available. I'm also happy to add a hand embroidered monogram and / or a co-ordinating wristlet for a small additional charge - just convo me if you want to discuss and kind of customisation / personalisation. You can see examples of other commissions I've made here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/crimsonrabbit/boards/
On receipt of your order, I'll confirm whether the item you’ve requested is in stock. If it is, I'll usually post it to you within 48 hours. Because of the nature of my items, many of them are handmade to order and if this is the case, I'll confirm the estimated dispatch date to you on receipt of your order.
I can ship anywhere, shipping costs are given for each item.
For larger / more valuable items, the shipping costs stated already include UK signed for postage or Tracked postage for International shipping but I do also offer some shipping upgrades for most other domestic and international packages, which you will see as an option in your cart when you check out. One of the upgrades is for tracked international postage, which is the best international service available at a reasonable cost. International Tracked items receive priority handling and benefit from an online tracking facility so you can check your items's progress right through to delivery. If you're in Continental Europe and would like to upgrade your Standard Shipping item to the tracked service, please message for a quotation, as it may be lower than shown at checkout.
I'm also happy to post direct to a giftee and include a hand written message - either include this on your order or convo me separately, whichever is easier for you.
If you have other particular postage or delivery needs, please convo me to discuss. Please note that I can't expedite or guarantee delivery internationally, but the service to most countries is already generally pretty quick from the UK (for example, 1 to 2 weeks to the USA).
Delivery is always as per the Royal Mail’s estimated delivery timetable (see the Post Office web site: http://www.postoffice.co.uk/).
Please note that responsibility for compliance with your country's laws and procedures regarding any conditions or restrictions applied to the item(s) you order from me, rests entirely with you, at all times. I'm also not responsible for any costs or charges that might be applied by your country's border / customs authorities.
