My Knit and Crochet Supply Bag

In my knit and crochet gift ideas post, I mentioned that I use the Thirty One Timeless Beauty Bag to store my knit and crochet supplies. Take a look at how well it works for craft supply storage.

The bag folds out into three separate sections. The two end sections have large, transparent zippered pockets that make it easy to see what I have stored in each one. My interchangeable circular needle set fits perfectly into one of these pockets.

The center section, which  is intended to hold makeup brushes, features some elastic loops. They work fairly well for holding sets of medium-size needles. I do have a few longer needles/hooks that I can’t keep in this section, but they are used so rarely that it’s not really a problem. Smaller needles might be tough to store in these loops too.

The strap that fastens the bag shut is elastic too. So, if you tend to overfill your supply bag a little bit, the strap will stretch to accommodate the extra stuff.

You’ll also see that one of the handles has a clasp, so you can hang it up easily by the handle. I have seen people use this same bag on the backs of car seats for road trips. Plus, it allows you to hang it up on hangers in hotels that can’t be removed from the closet bar. In my case, though, it’s an instant craft station. 🙂

I’m not a consultant – I just really like using this brand’s bags as storage for my craft supplies! In an upcoming post, I’ll show you how I use the Organizing Utility Tote as a project bag.

Crocheted Angel Ornaments

Now it’s officially acceptable to talk Christmas (I’m looking at you, Christmas in July at Hobby Lobby), so I thought I’d share one of my ornament projects.

Crochet angel ornaments

One of the funny little things that my husband and I have in common is that we both had crocheted angels at the top of our Christmas trees while growing up. Although I haven’t made a full-size one yet, I’ve made a few miniature versions. These ornaments are made from the Lora’s Angel pattern – one of the best angel patterns I’ve found (and it’s free!). Mine were made with Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread. They really need to be starched again, but you get the idea. 🙂 It’s an awesome pattern – give it a try!
