We’re delighted that the first bags with our Bobbie & Joy tags are ready.
These bags are sewn with a heavy wool felt and lined with linen, so the only cotton is the thread used to sew them together. The tag attached to the zip is made from solid oak and reinforced with a metal rivet. The bags are screen printed with original designs.
The bags will hold up to 4 skeins of yarn, or a lot of little things. One of the bags has been in use for months as the home for dressmaking scissors, pins, chalk, talking thread and other essentials that need to be taken to sewing classes.
We wanted to do something to celebrate getting the first bags for Bobbie and Joy made, so we’ll be donating £15 from the sale of each to the Trussell Trust. The Trust is behind many of the food banks in the UK. They’re a brilliant charity who gave out 1.6 million emergency food parcels last year.
