6-8-10 Bag Pattern

Difficulty: Easy

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 . . .  

These slender purses are the blank canvas for your creative musings. We can't wait to see what you will do.

  • Simple Elegance Frame in Three Finishes

    Elegant Snap Frame


    Metal Finishes:

    The elegant frame is attractive, practical, and versatile with a distinctly vintage appeal. It is an ideal frame for felted, fabric, and leather bags, because it is a sew-in frame with sew holes that are invisible on the outside when the bag is finished.

    Used in many Noni designs, including Amazing Grace, Three Nights in a Row, Petit Four, Fancy Party, and others, the frame converts from a handbag to a clutch when you squeeze the bottom of the little handle. The handle comes easily out of its attractive housing, making it clutch.
