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. Some items over £30 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 fabric inspired by The Shining movie

Drawstring project bag made with fabric inspired by The Shining movie
£25.00 2 Available
Love this


The bag is a perfect size for a smaller project - certainly large enough for a 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 bag in the last photograph.

I've lined the bag in a bright red cotton and added a yarn guide with metal press stud opening in the side seam. 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 a matching red shade, and I've sealed the ends by adding some matching fabric tape, for a tidy finish.

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 little more body and padding. Please note that the fabric placement in the photographs is of one sample bag, and your bag could look slightly different, depending on how the fabric is cut but you'll certainly see the REDRUM text.

Knife not included...


When a client introduced me to these two fabrics, they reminded me of seeing The Shining at the cinema so many years ago and I had to make this murderous bag!

The typeset 'REDRUM' print is a very direct reference to the movie of course and it immediately has the little boy's strange voice chanting the word going through my head! The contrast fabric at the bottom was named 'Redrum' by the designer and is based on the carpet seen on the film at the Overlook Hotel. Creepy, and I like to imagine myself riding a tricycle on it with a squeeky wheel...
