Welcome to my shop! My name is Penelope St-Laurent and I'm the owner of Yellow Petal Handmade in Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia. Here you’ll find a unique selection of knitting and crochet project bags, as well as accessory pouches and needle wraps/cases. With very few exceptions, the items you’ll find in my shop are my own designs and everything has been sewn by me.
I make a few fun accessories as well. I sew pretty wristlet keychains and bookmarks. I started making these smaller items to help use up little leftover strips and squares of pretty fabrics, but they’ve become so popular that they are now regular listings.
I strive to be environmentally responsible and am mindful in my designs and the fabrics that I choose, therefore I use only natural fabrics like 100% cotton, linen blends and occasionally cotton canvas. I also ship all purchases using biodegradable mailers, paper envelopes and cardboard boxes.
I love working with clients to come up with really great custom bags and needle wraps. Please feel free to contact me if you're interested in a custom order. I'm happy to discuss options with you!
