You’re Gonna Wanna See This ~ Coolest Caddy Ever!!!

So what’s better than a yarn bowl, or a project bag?

One that is both!

Say what?

How can a yarn bowl be a project bag you ask.

Let me show you…

I present to you, the Lazadas Multi-purpose Project Caddy.

Open: You have a handy yarn bowl complete with yarn guiding holes in the side.

Closed: You can grab what you are working on and take it with you without ever having to transfer your project to another container!

The bowl/bag is made of ultra-lightweight, flexible silicone, so your yarn will not snag or get caught. It also comes in three super cute colors and holds quite a lot of yarn.

I’m so in love with this caddy that I can’t say enough good things about it. Check out my video below to see all my thoughts on this awesome product and see it in action. Or go get your own here right now!

There are still 10 days left to shop for Christmas. If your loved one is crocheter, here are the perfect gifts that are always useful no matter how many the crocheter already has.

  1. Crochet Hooks

Furls Crochet Hooks ~ Retail $49 each

These Furls candy colored crochet hooks will be your crocheter’s new favorite hook. Plus, they are a perfect gift to keep giving. One hook for each special occasion (if the sticker shock of buying them all at once scares you). Whoever said diamonds are a woman’s best friend, also said these hooks are her second best.

Save

Clover Amour Soft Touch Hook Set ~ Retail $45+ for the whole set

Not quite as shiny as the Furls, but these are my go to favorite hooks of all time.

You can never have too many hooks, and these are the best quality for the money. Plus you can get the whole set for the same price as one of the Furls.

2. Yarn Bowl

Splurge

Stitch Happy Handmade Extra Large Wooden Yarn Bowl ~ Retail $49

This yarn bowl could actually be in the “save” section as well depending on how much you want to spend. Etsy alone has over 4,000 currently listed, with it’s most expensive at over $400.

Yarn bowls have made a huge explosion over the past year and it’s a good chance your crocheter might not even have one yet. But, if they do, don’t worry, they will always be able to use more.

Save

Yarn Bowl by Yarn Valet ~ Retail $12.99

This bowl is a great deal and was just mentioned by Good Housekeeping  as a must have for knitters and crocheters.

With is tiny price tag, it’s a great choice for those on a budget.

3. Project Bag

Splurge

Slipped Stitches Studio Plus Tote and Tot ~ Retail $135

Your crocheter can always use another project bag, so this is a no brainer.

The project bags from Slipped Stitches have every pop reference imaginable (I’m partial to Labyrinth- pictured here). This is their largest tote, but they have many other sizes (and price points) available.

Save

Art Bin Yarn Drum ~ Retail $21.99

What this lacks in style, it makes up for in utility. This thing is a workhorse, holding up to 8 skeins of yarn. If your crocheter loves making blankets, this is the tote for them.

Transforming Impractical Items Into Useful Tools #2: Shoe Dust Bags

Anyone actually store their shoes in these?
Anyone actually store their shoes in these?

Here is the second in a series of using forgotten items around your house and transforming them into useful needlework tools.

Shoe dust bags might be used by some on a regular basis, but for me, it’s extra packaging I don’t need — until now.

Instead of keeping my TOMS dust free, which I find funny because they are fairly inexpensive canvas shoes, I use my bag as a project container.

I can fit a multiple skein project in this big bag.

Most shoe dust bags come with a drawstring closure so it is the perfect bag to not only carry your project, but to run your tails through the closed opening while working it.

Now instead of shoving these bags into the corner of my closet, I use them to shove my projects into.
