Many thanks to Shawn for sharing this pic of her Kipster knitting bag "in the wild" in Cabo San Lucas!
I don’t know where to begin and this is my 2nd review ever. I don’t usually write them which is bad on my part, BUT I have to for Zoe’s Bag Boutique. Karen, the owner and the only one behind this store is extraordinary at her craft, customer service and her imagination of the beauty of bags.
My daughter’s 19th birthday was less than 2 weeks away and I was looking for the perfect gift that wasn’t the usual things. My daughter who is majoring in elementary education, is a book nerd, lover, worm, etc. I had already bought book related items, gift card, necklace, bracelet and of course books. As I was searching I fell upon Karen’s store. She had this unique book pattern but so many bags, so many decisions and yet still I was not sure. So I reached out to her, asked her opinion on which bag, what style, etc would she suggest. After hearing my thoughts and showing her the purse my daughter uses now, she told me her suggestion, sent me to look at various items as well as, since it will be custom made she doubted it would be here in time. Very honest, upfront and I loved that. She was not going to give me any false hope or rush and maybe not do the bag it’s full justice. It wasn’t worth the order or a potential new customer. How could you not find that refreshing and trustworthy.
I knew I was covered with gifts for that day so I decided to go with Karen’s suggestion. WOW is what I have to say. She kept in constant touch with me each step of the way. She wouldn’t let me pay yet even though she was starting it. She sent me updates and was so easy to get in touch with. She then contacts me that it will probably be shipped Thursday or Friday, this being about a week since we first chatted and Friday being my daughter’s birthday. So at last minute I asked about matching wallet and accessories. I was wrong to do that, I know how hard she was working just to get the custom bag done besides all her other orders and customers, but I had just thought of it. Again, she responded with items she had and I picked the Scooter to have with same pattern.
I received email for payment and on Wednesday received email that it was shipped. ALREADY??? My gift, arrived ON the day of my daughter’s birthday to my surprise. Basically a week from start to finish. I didn’t get to look at before my daughter so we just opened it right out of shipping package. I will admit, I was worried, I hadn’t seen any of her products in person and in pictures, they don’t always show everything. In this case, that is true. Pictures did not show the details, the perfect styling, Karen’s craft, love of what she does, which you clearly see in finished product and the beautiful pop of color in the book patterns.
This Tootsie was perfect. So perfect that my daughter cried at the excitement of her gift. Real tears. She was in awe and held it to her chest like a baby holds her favorite teddy. So then I cried. My daughter had a few minutes before her friends were picking her up, she ran out of the room to finish getting ready or so I thought. Instead she was transferring her items from old bag to new one. She said I can’t wait to show this baby off. She grabbed her book and said, “Even though I won’t be reading tonight, I can’t carry my “book bag” without a book.” Karen, thank you so much for helping make the perfect day even more perfect. Your work ethic is above par. Your product and workmanship is a work of art. You now have customers for life. Thank you again. Donna
Nedda purchased this tote and matching flat bottom bag for her mahjong racks and tiles. This set is designed specifically for that use. When she received her bags, although she liked them she wanted a zipper closure on the tote. We made arrangements for her to return them and she bought a new zippered set. In the meantime she discovered that the set she had would work perfectly for her knitting project so she decided to keep it as well.
Fast shipping very well packaged. Excellent communication with speedy response time. Beautifully made with great care and high quality workmanship! Love the print and quality fabric she uses I was especially excited when I noticed the witches faces were green which didn't show on my laptop. Very happy with my purchase and like always will be a return customer Thank you :) CB
Many thanks to Eeva for sending this great photograph. Here's what she wrote:

This is Vanessa. She is a truck driver and plans to use her Sweet Pea mini wallet on her route. She gifted her sister, a ballet dancer, a Deep Scribe zippered bag.
I LOVE this bag!!! The pocket/strap configuration is perfect. The material is actually quite durable. The print is adorable! This bag is my go-to day-to-day bag and has also already comfortably escorted me to and from Vegas and Southern Utah (as a perfect “personal item”). I get so many compliments about the cute print and functionality of this bag. I’ve been on a life long quest for the perfect bag, and this very well may be it!
"Here I am in Guatemala last week on Lake Atitlan! We spent about 2 weeks there setting up a hospital and operated on 203 patients!
Recognize the bag???!"
Many thanks to Patty for sharing these photographs. She has some very special pieces of knitting equipment, as you can see.
She wanted a bag large enough to corral them in one place, for ease in finding, and transport. She selected a stunning Asian fabric, which added to the whole feel of luxury.
I did a custom sizing for the bag. Some of those needles are quite long and would not fit in any of my standard sized zip bags. Lined it in a study silver gray packcloth and there you go, perfect for her supplies.
This is my SueBee, such a versatile bag. Before you made me the Lynx I used it for small sketching supplies out and about. Now it comes to work with me holding all those essential bits and pieces.
Many thanks to Lea for sharing some amazing photographs of herself, and her Kipster knitting bag, traveling through the UK.
These two were taken at Pembroke Castle in Western Wales.
Many thanks to Sheryl for taking the time to take, and share, these wonderful pics of a Suebee drawstring bag she bought, as a hostess gift for game night! She kindly took pics of the bag in action with Rummikub tiles, and next to her koi pond too.
She said "Also, just want to say how nice it feels to put our hand in the bag to fetch a tile! Smooth and silky!"
The Suebee bag can hold Scrabble, and Mah Jongg, tiles as well.
I am so pleased to share this wonderful photograph, and kind words, from a happy customer, Jeannot
Hi, Karen... I've been using my new kipster for three days now and I couldn't be happier with it!
I've been searching for and collecting knitting project bags with pockets for a few years (surprisingly, they're still quite uncommon) and yours is the first to have more pockets than I actually need (though I'm sure I will find a use for all of them in time!) And the yarn graffiti fabric is truly awesome...
Here's a photo of me using the bag in front of the yarn shop where I work called Ewebiquitous, in charming Lititz, PA. My friends and coworkers are wowed by the bag; we'll likely be seeing more of your bags in PA in the future!
I made this bag as a custom order, Christmas gift. The giftee, and the giftor, both sent me a copy of this awesome pic. I love the little red dragon sitting next to it! Many thanks to them both.
What Kate said about her new bag
"I absolutely love my bag. I am a huge fan of pockets for my knitting and was surprised to see there are plenty in this little bag. The quality is some of the best I have seen….I can never have enough knitting bags. keep up the good work and thank you again!"
Many thanks to Tish for sending this awesome pic of herself and her new Wisteria mini wallet!
Here's what she said
"I absolutely LOVE it!!! It is perfect for what I wanted it for! It will fit my iPhone 6s with the otter box case and clip on it, as well as cash and id plus room for more!!! The workmanship is gorgeous!!!! Thanks so much!!!!"
