About Me

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!
