How to fill your Cocoknits Project Portfolio

In this video, Julie takes you through how she fills her Project Portfolio so you can learn all the ways to use this amazing organizational tool. This product was designed because Julie wanted an orderly way to travel with her book, journal, worksheets, magazine, patterns, and pencils! The elastic bands secure books and magazines while the three pockets are perfect for loose items. Best of all, it's washable and ready for the wear and tear of travel - in fact, the more we wash these the more we love the texture!

Hi Sam, We’re glad you like your Portfolio! We’re embarrassed to say that the standard-size sheet in the US is 8.5 × 11″, rather than the 8.25 × 11.75″ A4. So it makes sense that your sheet seems a little long for the slot. Julie is going to keep this in mind for the future. In the meantime, some workarounds we’ve thought of: use the elastics to attach A4 page protectors in your portfolio to hold loose sheets (the protectors will still stick out, but keep the paper from wrinkling), trim your printouts, or fold your sheets so they fit better. We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know about this.

I really like my project portfolio.

I like being able to hold books, knitting magazines, notebooks etc with the elastic – that’s an inspired idea!

But what stops me from totally loving it is not being able to properly fit loose A4 sheets into the horizontal pocket at the front. Putting a single A4 sheet into that pocket is virtually impossible, as the page just creases at the bottom. Inserting several sheets is slightly easier, but it’s still not a good fit and there’s almost always a small part which sticks up above the top of the portfolio.

As A4 is the most frequently used paper size, it would make sense for that size to fit into the portfolio. Whether I print a pattern from Ravelry, or from a book I don’t want to spoil, it’s on A4. I suspect that’s the case for the vast majority of people who print out patterns

So when Julie says “loose leaf papers” what size does she mean?

So glad you like them!

I just love your beautiful tools, and want to reward you for your ingenuity, so I’m ordering my project portfolio and Kraft caddy today. Not sure how I’ll use them but I’ll let you know once I figure it out!!!
