Storing knitting stuff is always a challenge. I've got my many WIPs (works in progress), a huge yarn stash, plenty of accessories and notions, and so much more stuff!
Bags and Ikea sure do come in handy. As do these great solutions from a company called Great Useful Stuff that really lives up to its company name!
Thanks to Sarah, from www.greatusefulstuff.com, for sending us these sweet Cupcake Storage Bags and Organizer Totes for review and to giveaway!
When I first opened the Cupcake Storage Bag, I let out a delighted squeal when I found the smaller bag nested in the bigger one. Too cute. My DH had a good laugh at me over that! YES - the bags nest and make a really cute set.
Each bag has a bottom compartment that zips and a top compartment that has the string pull. When closed, the top looks like it's got a cherry on it! The bottom is a nice, sturdy canvas material. The top is like a soft, brushed cotton material (the better to resemble icing, me thinks!).
Each Cupcake Bag actually fits a decent amount of finished knit projects and/or yarn. You can see the scale of them since my 2 1/2 year old decided she needed to be in the photo too! A sweater's worth of yarn can definitely fit into a cupcake!
Sarah also sent a cute organizing tote - with more pockets than I've ever seen on a tote! This purple tote has nice, deep, open pockets all around and a great big center pouch. It's also made in a sturdy, high quality canvas with pretty contrast trim piping. It comes in a lot of other great color combos as well. Love it! It's the perfect size for a project. You can keep all the accessories, like post it notes, pens, calculators, gauge ruler, stitch holders, etc. all handy and separate in the outer pockets. The tote is great for any kind of crafting.
