Anyone who has ever had about 7 wips on the go at once knows the value of having somewhere to stash them all. One of the many uses of a tote bag to a crafter. That’s before you even mention how useful they are for shopping and hiding craft supplies!
You guessed it, I love a tote!
This is one of the reasons I was inspired to design some slogan totes as part of the Live Creative range. I own tote bags from old gigs which I’ve had for years, battered and bruised, they all mean something to me. That’s what I want for these. For them to be where you instinctively stash your project, whether it’s taking a crochet WiP with you in the car, train or bus, clearing your latest sewing project of the kitchen table or hiding your embroidery threads away from the cat. I’d love so much for these to be your go-to crafty project bag. Of course you can use them as a bag for life in your weekly shop too!!
So, let me tell you a little about the designs.
Anyone who spends more than a few minutes on this site will realise that Dora Does is all about promoting the positive impact which creativity has on wellbeing. That was the inspiration behind this bag. The same applies whether you use one needle, two needles, a hook, your hands, your arms, or any other tool which you can imagine! Stitching = happy!
As you can see this comes in a lovely powder blue text on either Grey, Pink or Natural cotton totes.
Just out of interest, I googled “Life’s a…”, just to see how my internet browser was feeling today and the results amused me… that last on in particular… I don’t even have a dog!
I wonder if anyone has ever studied the correlation between the mood of google’s suggestions and the user’s wellbeing?
Lets move on to my second design before I digress down any more rabbit holes!
You crocheters need no explanation for this one! If I had a penny for every time someone said something like “I like your knitting”, I would be living it large!
Now you no longer need to respond… just show ‘em the bag!!
It’s been such a sunny weekend that I decided to take the pics outside – where there was actually a bit too much light! – but I did discover that each bag can easily hold about 12 balls of yarn (the standard 100g acrylic type). That is a LOT of yarny goodness in one bag!!
So there we are – the bags are all live on Etsy now but are quite limited in number for this first run. I’d love to know what you think!! What would your perfect tote say?
Until next time
Happy Hooking (and stitching!)
