So Easy, So Noni! Sweet little bags for fun outings! This pattern contains instructions for three confections -- sweet little bags that are perfect for day trips, fun stops at the downtown mall, or strolls through a new city. The bags are fun, flirty, easy to make and finish, but big enough to hold the essentials: keys, wallet (within reason, you know), lipstick, and dark chocolate.
These little bags may be left unembellished, but that certainly shouldn't stop you from adorning them with the Noni flower of your choice. My picks? Tiny camellias or forget-me-nots.
Perhaps best of all, the felting & finishing for these three bags is particularly easy. The Raspberry Liqueur bag can be made in one day, felted, and carried the next day. The Candied Orange Rind and Maraschino Cherry Bonbon bags may take slightly longer to knit, but not to finish! All you do is attach the felted "flaps" to the snap closure handle by folding them over a detachable rod and hand-sewing them in place (no fancy stitching as only you will see it). Once this is done (in as little as 40 minutes or so), you are ready to pack your little bag and walk out the door.
If you would like pockets for your little bags, call us about Noni Pockets (available at the end of March, 2008). These 100% silk pockets (in packs of 3, including two zippered pockets and a cell phone pouch) increase the functionality of any bag. Simply whip stitch them in place and go!
