Big Flirt Purse Pattern

The best little knitting accessories or change purse ever!

(185)
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.

  • Large Flirt Frame

    Flirt Purse Frame

    (FFL-)

    Size:

    This little frame, measuring just 3" (7.5cm) at the widest point and 2 1/2" (6.35cm) tall is just right for micro-bags, tiny hand-knitted and felted bags or fabric purses that carry little treasures and are little treasures themselves. The little bags I have designed for this frame are fun, flirty, and - trust me on this one - practical.

    The Big Flirt micro-bag with a tiny purse chain handle allows you hands-free perusal of the buffet offerings and also rocks as a change purse. It does an equally stunning job as your dinner out companion. A phone doesn't fit; so you can focus all your attention on the moment.
