Locket Bag in 2 sizes

Little bags perfect for knitting accessories and other daily essentials

Difficulty: Easy

I have had this little bag in mind for a while: I like tiny, flat little bags. You might have noticed this. They are just great for small things. You might have noticed that I like small things . . . These little bags are just terrific for a lip balm, a credit card, my tiny little vile of rose perfume (my favorite . . . just like actual damask roses you might find amongs the granite stones on the Maine rocky coast). They are also perfect for the other things I have with me at all times: stitch markers, my little wooden needle case full of needles of all sizes and for all functions fibery, tiny scissors that I can sneak on airplanes because they look like a little puppy - my puppy snips, a small needle gauge with built-in ruler, a retractable tape measure shaped like a flower (of course). 

The other reason I like these bags is because they are the perfect canvas for fun embellishments. You might have figured out how much I love bags as canvases for our creativity. On this one, I have put one of my favorite turnlocks - the Poseidon turnlock - and included it in the kit, too (thus the bag's name). I glued the lock on with superglue so it is more decoration than anything else. But, just to give this turnlock a little plug: it is so so cool! You don't have to make any holes in your bag: it rivets onto a bag flap and onto the bag itself. I use the glue as insurance to keep it where I want it. 

You can, however, choose your own decorations: flowers of your own making, alien skulls you can purchase from my site, a favorite brooch, the pendant from an Arcane Angel necklace - take a look: picture Monet's Garden in the middle of a Misty Blue locket, the large size. Beautiful. And in these last days, now is the time to get the last few pieces of Arcane Angel Jewelry: just think how beautiful those pendants can be decorating the smooth field of Party Glasses, or Just the Change, or Locket . . .

I am excited about the ways that Stonehedge Fiber Mill is evolving and moving toward hand-dyeing. It's so exciting! More to come as they introduce new future colors and products!

  • Poseidon turn lock

    Poseidon Turnlock



    I fell in love with this turnlock when I discovered it. Not only is it terrifice to close a bag with a small or large flap, but I use it to close garments, such as the Ela coat or even fabric coats I already own. I alrernate the position of the lock so the weight is even on both sides. It is, I have to say, the coolest way to close a coat or jacket. I have a green fabric coat, for example, that is going to be sporting the small ones soon.
