One reason we offer a lot of different knitting/project bags here is because I love bags. They’re practical, they help keep you organized, and they look pretty. What’s not to love? We received Jordana Paige’s new Cezanne Bag a few weeks ago, and I wanted to show you pictures of the insides. I know the color looks really different from one photo to the next. Teal – a pretty color, but so hard to photo. This first photo is actually the closest to the real color, and it also shows you the size of the bag in relation to the mannequin.
One thing Jordana Paige really knows is pockets and places for organizing. Pockets on the outside. A place for your phone, camera, iPod, keys, or whatever.
Pockets on the inside. Pockets for credit cards, knitting needles and crochet hooks, and a loop to run your yarn up through to keep it from tangling.
Special zippered parts for little accessories like scissors, tape measures, stitch markers, scissors, etc. The blue zippered pouch there snaps in and out.
And a divider to section off your knitting from your wallet, or one project from another. (The middle zippered part is also a great place to store your iPad or Kindle, if you knit your patterns from an electronic device.)
I also like the fact that this looks more like a purse than a “knitting bag”. (Shown here, L-R, Bordeaux, Teal, Orange Poppy, Stone Gray. Click the photo to make it bigger.).
I picked the Bordeaux color for myself, but only because my last Jordana Paige bag was in that teal. Normally, I’d be all over the teal. In fact, it’s still tempting me. Last knitting project? Teal. Current knitting project? Teal. Someday I need to get past Teal. But right now, I still love it. Are you stuck in a color rut? What’s your color?
