Diana Couture Review & GIVEAWAY!

If you are a Facebook fan of mine – and you should be ;) you’d know that I have recently dabbled in my lost past time of crocheting. My Grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a tween and I have only recently begun to experiment with different patterns and yarns.

During all of my ‘creating’ it became increasingly apparent that I needed some form of organization for the project(s) that I was working on. I needed a bag that would be functional, have pockets and a place for my hooks, easily transportable, and lastly – fashionable! Being an etsy lover I immediately did a search for project bags. There are a lot of shops out there offering project bags, but none compare to the bags I found in Diana Couture.

Diana from Diana Couture is a knitter, teacher and designer. In her shop she offers not only practical solutions for the knitter/crocheter, but also highly stylized and hip items. I received this Serena Project Bag for review…

Doesn’t it just scream classic handbag?! The print is great, and so too is the inside…

The bag offers a number of envelope-style pockets perfect for hooks or needles, small pattern books, measuring tape, and the like. This bag measures 8”wide, 6”deep and 8” tall and is perfect for those mid-sized projects – not to mention a few extra items like my small container of buttons!

The bag is so versatile too which is a total win for me – the more bang for the buck the better! Since the bag is sturdy, when open, it stands like a basket which means no wasted time fiddling! It also spots a good length handle for easy transport!

Before finding this bag, I was using an old, larger sized handbag. While crocheting I found my yarn looking a little fuzzy – from the zipper! My yarn was actually rubbing on the zipper as I pulled at it! You will not have that problem with this bag! Your yarn can rest safely inside while you pull the strand through the small opening in the front of the bag – genius!

Diana Couture also offers this bag in a larger version for those larger knitting or crocheting projects. LOVE Damask!

And how about these super cute and funky Owl Yarn Holders offered in a couple different sizes?!

And for all the knitters and aspiring knitters out there, Diana Couture offers these great Stitch Hoodies! Here’s what Diana Couture says about them: “These unique on-needle project holders keep stitches from falling off the needles, keep needles stored together and help protect needles from damage”. I think these would also protect your hours of work from curious little hands!


BUY IT!

Head on over to Diana Couture and pick up a little something for your crafty-self. Don’t crochet or knit? Each one of the items in Diana’s shop would make a perfect gift for the knitter or crocheter in your life! Yes, Christmas isn’t that far off! ;)
