A Look Inside the Project Wallet

In the past when Julie traveled with a knitting project, she was often frustrated to realize she'd left a vital tool back at home. She wanted an easier way to make sure she had everything needed for a specific project: something that kept her tools organized while also being lightweight and durable, roomy but compact, and allowing quick access to whatever she was looking for.

After hand-sewing many prototypes, she eventually perfected the Project Wallet. Just read down the tool list at the beginning of your pattern, grab what you need, and fill it up! Here are a few of our favorite features:

Some Details We Love


11 Pockets

Don't let the slim size fool you: the Project Wallet has a whopping 11 pockets: 5 large, 2 medium, and 4 small. Also included are three removable tab folders, which you can lift up to access your tiniest tools without having to dig around the bottom of the pocket.

The accordion style expands when filled so the Project Wallet can easily stand up on it's own, making it much easier to quickly access tools while working.


Kraft Paper Fabric

If you're familiar with our other accessories, you know we're fans of kraft paper fabric. And for good reason! It's lightweight, durable, machine washable, and softens beautifully over time.


Corozo Button & Waxed Cotton String

We do our best to use eco-friendly materials, so we fell in love when we found these corozo buttons. They're known as "vegan ivory" and are made from the seeds of the tagua tree, which are only harvested after they have naturally fallen.

We paired it with a waxed cotton string, which wraps around the button to keep the Project Wallet securely closed.


Two Color Options

Our Project Wallet is available in two classic colors: Kraft Brown and Gray. Find them here, or at your local yarn shop.

Stitch Fixer

Dropped a stitch? No stress. The hooks of our double-ended Stitch Fixer will pick them right back up. Only 4" (10 cm) long so it will fit in the the shorter pockets of the Project Wallet, and it's made of 100% nickel-plated steel so it will stick to magnets.

Colorful Magnet Set

In the video above, Julie uses one of the small button magnets from her Maker's Board to hold her stitch markers together inside the Project Wallet. You can do this with any small magnet, like those in our Colorful Magnet Set; each magnet is .75" (2 cm) in diameter and made with biodegradable PLA.

Hi Catherine, So glad you like the wallet—we do too!
The sweater Julie is wearing is Lucia, knit in Malabrigo Rasta. Definitely will keep you warm! Enjoy!

Catherine Martin

This wallet looks irresistible! Two things, not really on the subject: (1) It is so very very nice to see knitters’ hands without long, polished fingernails! and (2) would you be willing to say what the pattern and yarn are for the sweater sleeves shown in the video? I am warmer this morning just looking at them.
Thanks —
