  • W with Box

    W Bag Pattern

    (155)

    Delivery Method:

    Who is W? Winsome. Wise. Worldly. We don't know her name, which makes her decidedly mysterious. Or perhaps insecure? No, impossible, with such a lovely frame.

    She's the perfect size to keep a big secret (or two little ones). Somehow she crosses the boundaries of class distinctions and attracts attention of the highest sort. At home in a Monte Carlo casino or an English manse, she is just as likely to be found at a bonfire or strolling the beach. What is her secret? She won't tell.

    6-8-10 Bag Pattern

    (156)

    Delivery Method:

    6 - 8 - 10 is a sleek, slim handbag perfect for the woman who travels light. This bag is elegant, understated, and stands on her own or is beautiful embellished with a cluster of small flowers or with one large life-like Hibiscus.

    In other words, this bag is the perfect special occasion bag: make a 6 for the bride and 8s for each of her attendants. Take a 10 to the wedding you are going to later this year. Make an 8 for your Mother-in-Law's birthday, and another for yourself for the birthday party in her honor. Bead a little red 6 with a grid of black beads for your Valentine's Day date. Make an 8 dazzling with Sparkle Rivets. Make a very interesting statement with a row of small Alien Skull Ornaments across the top, just under the line of sparkly beads that hold the frame in place . . .

    Two Flavors Pattern

    (162)

    Delivery Method:

    Two flavors gives you two versatile little bags in one pattern: The small bag (little flavor) is the perfect change purse, or (as it is in my own bag) the perfect little tote for lip balm, a tiny vial of perfume, and my favorite lipstick. It is also the perfect tiny-going-to-a-party bag. Quick to knit and decorate, it is the perfect gift-knitting project for every woman on your list, from bridesmaids, to little lasses, to hostesses, to teachers who will love it.
