Hey y'all, how's is everyone spring so far? It's wavering between grey for the day and sunny the next. As you probably know, if you don't no prob, I'm a bag maker along with a pattern designer. Here is a link to my Etsy if you're interested in checking it out! I designed my bags in three different sizes with a zipper top and pull tabs. Photographed below:)
I have a lovely knitting friend Brittaney who also sews her own bags, instead of a zipper (which most people can't stand sewing) she uses snaps and brought her kit over for me to try out! I sewed up a bag for myself in fabrics that I've been craving to use and had it ready when she came over for knitting. It was so much easier than I expected and I purchased a kit for myself to use!
Do you think it's a style that you would be interested in owning? I'm thinking of designing a square box bottom bag (paper bag style) that snaps at the top and then can be folded down to make it a yarn bowl? This would work to transfer your project and a single skein of yarn between your house and your knitting hang out! What do you think? Leave me a comment to let me know if I need to get to work!

Have you ever traveled through Portland OR before? If you have and you didn't make a stop at Starlight Knitting Society then you are missing out! Starlight Knitting Society is a gorgeous yarn shop on the outer areas of Portland that carries a variety of hand dyed and commercially dyed yarn.
We stopped at Starlight as part of our (my Mom and I) trip to Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. We like to make the drive part of the adventure so the whole trip is fun, not just the parts other than the driving.
Starlight is in a gorgeous building with tons of light and has a very welcoming environment, the workers area always helpful but leave us to explore.
I think that the shop carries quite a few yarns/brands that I don't find in a lot of other shops. I hope you get to make a stop here soon!
