REVIEW: della Q Rosemary Bag

della Q Rosemary Bag

Where to Find: della Q

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you already know that I love della Q bags!  Pretty and functional, della Q bags are not only great for toting around your current WIP, but they make fabulous gift bags for those FO's as well!

UntitledI was recently given the opportunity to review the Rosemary bag in it's newest colorway/pattern, Candy Spree.  This small project bag is truly one-of-a-kind, as each one is handmade in Vietnam.  But this bag isn't just good looking, it's for a good cause as well!  A portion of each purchase goes towards training low-income and rural Vietnamese women in the art of quilting. 

Rosemary is a cute rounded-off cube shaped bag that measures 8" tall by 6" wide by 6" depth.  The 7" drop handles are perfect for hanging from your arm as you knit or crochet away on a pair of socks or fingerless mitts.  A toggle closure helps to keep your yarn ball from falling out, however the bag does not close completely.  The extra front pocket holds small notions like stitch markers, fold-up scissors and darning needles.     

Currently available in 6 colorways, Rosemary retails for $32.  She's the perfect accessory to your summer wardrobe and can double as a little evening bag when not housing a knitting  or crochet project.

I adore everything about my Rosemary bag.  The size is perfect for a small one-skein project.  The drop handles make it convenient to hang from my wrist so that I may stand up and walk around while knitting in public.  The Candy Spree fabric is bright and cheery, and I just can't help but smile every time I pick it up.  I love all things handmade, so knowing this bag was put together by human hands and not some machine makes the higher-than-normal cost for a small project bag well worth it. The fact that it also supports training for low-income women is just icing on the cake.

If you're looking for a chic little project bag, take a look at Rosemary.  She won't steer you wrong and will add a little cheer to your summer crafting.

Disclosure: della Q sent a Rosemary Bag to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Pretty, but I'm totally project-bagged out... The Knight would say I passed bag capacity in all areas quite some time ago!

I've never heard of these bags before. Now I think I need another project bag.
