We have new bags for the upcoming crawl. Bags that show as out of stock are probably just waiting until the crawl starts. Check back after Friday March 15th at 10am.

One of the best parts of this shop is all the delightful and creative people we meet. Dr. Laura we meet through our favorite knitting midwife who has also introduced us to a ceramicist friend and her RBG earrings

Dr. Laura uses durable bags that would otherwise go to the landfill to make these cheerful zippered bags that are lined with a matching fabric. We taken pictures that give a glimpse of the lining fabric. Each one is unique and won't be repeated.

The large size is big enough for a one skein project. The other sizes are prefect for notions, make-up, or for traveling. 

Small: approximately 3 x 4 and 3.5 inch base inches tall
Medium: approximately 3.5 x 5 inch base and 4 inches tall
Large: approximately 6 x 4 inch base and 4.5 inches tall

Looking for an Upcycled Tote Bag? Dr. Laura also makes those too. Find them here.

Note to local people: if you have durable plastic (including woven plastic) or burlap bags, you are very welcome to drop them off at the shop for Dr. Laura to use. Please consider any donated bags, just that, a donation. We cannot guarantee they are usable or what she will make from them. 

Dr. Laura has been making things since she was tiny. Her “making table” in the basement was her happy place as a kid, and now that happy place is her sewing room! These clam shell bags are a current favorite. Her very generous local Buy Nothing group gives her coffee and rice bags. Chicken feed bags have come from her son’s colleague. Some of the linings are specifically purchased for these bags; other fabrics just come into her life, as these things do!

When she is not making upcycled bags, she is knitting, crocheting, sewing, and taking care of plants. And there’s also that day job as a doctor!

Please enjoy these bags – they are made with love.
