Shop Announcement:

Hello and welcome to my Folksy shop! I've been making for others since 2013 and if you'd like to see what my customers have said about my work since then (before I opened up here on Folksy), you can read more than 1,000 reviews on my web site: (click 'Reviews' on the bar at the top of the page).

In addition to the UK, I'm happy to ship most items to Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia - just message me for a shipping quotation.

Many of the pieces I make are made to order and the shipping time is a 'worse case scenario' estimate - I will often make and send items quicker than indicated, although things do sometimes slow down at busy times. If you want something urgently, just message me and I'll confirm if I can meet your deadline. Most items over £15 are posted via the 'signed for' Royal Mail service automatically, but if you'd like to make sure you have this on your order, just message me.

I'm more active on Instagram than anywhere else: but you can always find me online elsewhere: my blog is here:, my facebook page here: and my Pinterest addiction is evidenced here:

Drawstring project bag made with super cute Guinea Pig print

Drawstring project bag made with super cute Guinea Pig print
£25.00 1 Available
Love this


We should probably call these bags Glitter Pig bags, because this super cute print just seemed perfect with sparkling Essex Linen. The blue water and the copper metallic colourways felt so perfect with this print, so I'm offering the bags in both colourways. The cotton lining colours I've used are picked up in the print detail too.

The bag is a perfect size for a smaller project - certainly large enough for a one skein shawl, but compact and squishy enough to take with you in a larger bag when you're on the go. You can see the dimensions of the bags in the last photograph.

I've added a yarn guide with metal press stud opening in the side seams of the bag and the corners have been folded to create pretty triangle shapes that flatten the bag and help it stand on it's own so you can work out of it. The drawstrings are a lovely soft cotton woven cord in matching shades.

All the fabrics have been interfaced with woven cotton for strength and to help resist creasing a little, and I've added a layer of fleece for a a little more body and padding. Please note that the fabric placement in the photographs is of sample bags, and your bag could look slightly different, depending on how the fabric is cut.

I'd be happy to make this bag for you in another size or style if you like the fabrics but have something slightly different in mind - just convo me for a custom order.


I have to admit that many fabrics in my extensive stash secured their place on the basis of "I have to have that!" and this Guinea Pig print is definitely one of those! I had no thought about what I would do with it, I just had to have it! Fortunately, as often happens, when I shared a photo of it on Instagram, someone else knew exactly what she'd like me to do with it, so I made drawstring project bags.
