If you know me, you know my distaste for plastic. I don’t like the feel of it. I can’t stand the crumpling sound of it. That said, I get how knitters want to see what is in their bag. I get why some knitters prefer zip lock bags over the della Q Eden Cotton Pouches and our Edict Cotton Project Bags. I’m just not a plastic girl.
Remember the Namaste Oh Snap! Pouches? Apparently, you can’t get them any longer. I had a number of knitters and store owners ask me to do something similar. I had to think about it. I didn’t want to do the same thing. There are certainly other mesh bags already on the market. However, I think they are rather boring. If I was going to do something in mesh, I wanted to do it the della Q way.
Enter the della Q Mesh and Cotton Zip Pouches. I can live with mesh, especially when it is paired with cotton. . .you know how I like a good cotton print. So, I reinvented the mesh bag by pairing it with a cotton fabric. I know you Namaste Oh Snap! folks loved how they were nested. So, I did add in that bit of Namaste detail. You get three different sized pouches nested together. I included a zip top, as I think it a bit silly to have a bag for notions that doesn’t completely close. (I know 50% of you are going to say you don’t like the zipper. . .I can’t please everyone.) I also added a flat bottom to my pouches for a bit of extra room.
You know what else? Another really important detail? The mesh edges are COVERED! YOU WON’T CATCH YOUR YARN! Yeah, for tiny details.
What do you think? Is this a mesh bag done the della Q way?
