Big Flirt Purse Pattern

The best little knitting accessories or change purse ever!

Difficulty: Easy

Big Flirt is a felted, micro-bag that will steal your heart. She's tiny, but she can carry a lot of change, knitting supplies such as stitch markers, small but essential cosmetics, or your favorite jewelry on holiday. 

She's so quick to knit: maybe less than, or just over, and hour. One skein of yarn will make multitudes, so she is perfect for gift-knitting. Start knitting now for all the ladies and little girls on your list.

    Flirt Purse Frame



    The Flirt Purse Frame collection is Noni's newest obsession. These little frames are just right for micro-bags, tiny hand-knitted and felted bags that carry little treasures and are little treasures themselves. The little bags I have designed for these frames are fun, flirty, and - trust me on this one - practical.

    The three Little Sweets bags give you three tiny purses for tiny things: stitch markers, favorite earrings, little mints, lipstick, and other diminutives. The two Not Enough Parties purses offer you a larger profile micro-bag with a tiny purse chain handle that allows you hands-free perusal of the buffet offerings. Wear your little bag like jewelry. The Flirt bag rocks as a change purse, but also does a stunning job as your dinner out companion. A phone doesn't fit; so you can focus all your attention on the moment.
