“Life is short. Buy the bag.”


Repeat after me. “I deserve a new bag.”

I was tired…tired of lugging around two bags. Every time I had to pack up and go anywhere, I had to get my purse ready to go and my project bag ready to go. Then wherever I went, my shoulder hurt from carting around both bags. They took up more space at my feet in the car. Then, it occurred to me. Why don’t I just buy a backpack purse that’s big enough for my yarn?

There are some really great project bags on the market right now. However, if you’re anything like me, you are on a budget. (At least my husband tells me I’m on a budget…) I don’t have extra cash to be splurging on an expensive purse. So, I did what I always do when I’m trying to find a great deal on a great product without having to actually leave my house and go shopping. I went to Amazon.

Before I knew it, this backpack purse showed up on my doorstep! It’s perfect. It has a super large compartment to carry my yarn and project as well as my crochet hook case, scissors and other little knick knacks. There are also two side zippers where I keep my wallet, keys, pens…you know…regular purse stuff. It even came with an adorable pom pom! (I added the pineapple charm of course.)

If you are looking for a great project bag for a fraction of the cost of some of the name-brand expensive ones, then this is the bag for you! This backpack purse comes in many different colors and two different sizes. I chose the large size! Even if you don’t usually haul around skeins upon skeins of yarn, you can easily fit a laptop or tablet in the main compartment. It could even be used as a diaper bag! It’s fun and stylish…and mine just happens to be…

…full of yarny goodness!
