Poseidon Turnlock

A turnlock perfect to close bags or garments


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.

One of the other things I am enchanted by, besides the curriously old-time underwater diving suits vibe, is how easy these turnlocks are to apply to bags and garments. No holes necessary. Both parts of the lock are rivetted onto the front. So simple. So cool (I have to say it again). 

I don't have many left, so if you like it, or love it, better get it now. 1 or 2 for a bag and between 4 and 6 for a garment for even weight distribution on both sides (I vote for 6 . . . I mean, that's what I'm getting).

    Anouk and Vianne Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    Anouk is small, playful, teaming with vibrant, youthful energy. She likes to be decorated, to change her look. One day she is stylishly sleek, without adornment, saturated color. Another day, she is glittering with rhinestones, cabochon rivets, a skull ornament, or fierce look-at-me spikes.

    Vianne is refined, formal, captivating. You admire her across the room. She, too, likes the way adornment and color can change her mood. How will you dress her?

  • Small Satchel shown with Ella Learns to Tango Knitted Coat

    A Week In Venice Satchel Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    What would a felted shoulder bag look like if it echoed the elegant arches, winding, narrow cobblestone streets, and timeless villas of Venice? With this question in mind, I designed the Week in Venice Satchel, a bag with an aesthetic that marries classic design with simple lines and an understanding that when form perfectly follows function something is as useful as it is beautiful.

    Available in 2 sizes, this sleek, simple, elegant felted bag design is as easy to knit and finish as it is to carry. Its simplicity looks fabulous with blue jeans and pretty top, swingy frock, or classic winter coat. In muted neutrals, it can go effortlessly from Fall to Spring with most of your looks. Make it again in the colors of sorbet and it will go with you to the beach, to a party in Bermuda, or to the new restaurant across town.

  • Plum Ella Coat with Lime ruffles, side view

    Ella Coat Rediscovered for Women Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    This first of the Ella coats came into being after I made a felted coat for little girls. The striped pattern in the little girl's coat was inspired by the piled up mattresses in the Princess and the Pea story. I even sandwiched 3-dimensional green peas between the stripes. Because a felted garment must be made so much larger than the size it will become, I was able to wear the coat before it was felted. I was smitten with the fit of the unfelted coat and the first Ella Coat was born.
