Just Julee Designs came to be as the result of my personal desire to have a separate knitting bag for my sock projects. I was frustrated with my sock yarn and needles getting tangled up in my larger knitting bag. I started playing with designs, intending to whip up something practical fairly quickly. As I experimented, the Math teacher in me took over, and I started to think about using geometric shapes beyond squares and rectangles. As the bag design developed, I knew I wanted something unique for the fabric. A trip to the fabric store yielded the signature trademark of Just Julee bags - batiks - and Just Julee Designs was born.
All of my bags and needle cases are made with at least one lovely 100% cotton batik fabric, making each bag a unique item due to the nature of the non-repetitive designs and colors of the batiks. They are lovingly crafted one bag at a time. I strive for top quality in my fabrics and in my construction of my bags and needle cases.
