Yarn Block Phone Wallet

I absolutely love my phone wallet!! It’s so handy to always have my money and cards with me – because you know I’m always going to have my phone!

So I’m highlighting this yarn block iPhone wallet from Redbubble today. I just love the bright colors and being a knitter, yarn is always a good thing!

The wallet is an open-book-style with a built-in stand and elastic strap closure. You can see the slots for your credit cards and driver’s license in the picture here. Less obvious is that behind those slots is a pocket where you can keep cash.

The yarn design wraps all the way around the wallet.

My only complaint here is that Redbubble doesn’t offer the wallet for anything other than the versions of the iPhone 6. What’s up with that?

Crochet Business Cards

If you run a crafting business, odds are you’re pretty creative. But that might not extend to developing your own branding or stationery.

I’ve just built up a set of business cards, profile cards and product tags based on one of my crochet designs that would be just the thing for you to use. They come in a wide variety of colors, as well as three different shapes/sizes for the business cards.

Perfect timing too as Zazzle is having a business card sale July 20-21. You can get 50% off with the code JULYBUSINESS. (This is for any business cards, not just mine!)

Record your spinning adventures

If you happen to be one of those crafters who likes to spin their own yarn, you know how frustrating it can be to create a great yarn only to never be able to make it again because you don’t remember what you did.

(Oh, no. That’s not me. Not at all. Ever. 🙂 )

Among the journals and logs I’ve created are a couple of spinning logs where you can keep track of your spinning projects and techniques so you can consistently produce a handspun yarn you loved again and again.

There’s plenty of space to mark down the details of the fiber you used – weight, type, preparation – and the specifics of the process – spin, wheel setting, etc. Write down the details of the yarn you ended up with and tape in a sample of the fiber and yarn for future reference. Additional spaces for naming your project, the date you first worked it, your plan for the yarn and your rating of the results.

There’s space for 50 projects in all with a handy index at the front for you to keep track of them all. Additional dot grid pages allow you to build your own lists to track things like your fiber inventory, techniques to try or tools.

  • Two-page spread with space for all the details of the project and process, notes and a sample
  • Build your own index in the front of the book so you can easily find handspun yarns you want to repeat
  • Track everything from fiber prep to the specific tools you use
  • Great gift idea for fiber artist, spinner, knitter or crocheter in your life
  • Glossy soft cover
  • Perfect-bound notebook
  • 6”x9” for easy carry
  • 110 total pages, providing space for 50 projects
  • Made in the USA

I have two different cover options right now – one with some cute toy sheep and another featuring some neutral colored roving and wooden drop spindles.

Summer Picks Sale: tote bags

Tote bags are super functional, so I’m glad they’re part of Zazzle’s Summer Picks Sale this week. I have a ton of these in my shops, but I thought I’d just show off some of the knitting, crochet and yarn related ones.

Tote bags are great for crafters because you can use them as project bags to carry your work around with you when you head out. (Or maybe you’re like me and you don’t take your knitting with you places anymore. Sigh.)

There are basically two types of tote bags available. One is an overall print design style, while the other is an economy canvas bag that prints the design in a square on the front and back. Both are great for our purposes!
