Lipstick and Change Hardware Kit


The hardware kit for the Lipstick and Change bag is the same whether you make a small, medium, or large bag and include all of the hardware needed to make the finished bags shown on the pattern cover. Because we don't know what colors you will pick, we have not included the yarn, beads, and thread - but we have put together yarn, beads, and thread color-matched packages for your convenience.

As you think about and knit your Lipstick and Change bag, consider some of the embellishments that go beautifully with the classic styling in these hardware kits: make your bag a unique statement by decorating with cabochon rivets in shiny nickel: make swirls or a quilted pattern, a sleek row of them at the top of your bag or around its base.

Hardware Kit Includes:

  • 3.5" (9cm) classic purse frame
  • 10" (25.4cm) classic purse chain
  • 6 Noni 12mm bag feet
  • Stiffener for the bag bottom

Note: The pattern, yarn, beads, and thread are not included in the kit so that you may choose yarn and bead colors you prefer.

    Lipstick and Change


    Delivery Method:

    I remember one of the first purses I ever owned: a gift for my birthday, it was soft to the touch and tiny. Perfect for treasured things when I was a little girl and then for grown-up girl things, like lipstick . . . and change. It carried these essentials until its sweet little kiss lock would no longer kiss.

    Lipstick and Change is my effort to recapture that beloved first purse. My update is colorful, playful, and has 3 size options (who doesn't love options?).

  • Select Lipstick and Change City Bags

    Lipstick and Change CITY Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    CITY, the third collection of bags in the Lipstick and Change series, has a distinctly urban vibe if blocked one way, and a decidedly vintage feel if blocked another. Make it the only bag you carry on a Saturday adventure and you can walk all day unencumbered as it's slung cross body on a long silver chain. Take it to Sunday Brunch at your favorite café and you'll like how it looks sitting in the middle of the little marble table you've scored next to the window. The glances CITY gets from passersby are nice, too. Monday to Friday, it's the little bag in a bigger bag, a perfect ensemble, and the one you really need to grab when you go out to lunch. Friday night, CITY is the bag that goes with you out to dinner and a movie, dangling from your wrist like jewelry. It's so quick to knit up and finish, you might make it in colors enough to match all your favorite outfits.

    Lipstick and Change Sparkle Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    This cutie felted bag, like its predecessor, Lipstick and Change, conjures up memories for me of beloved little purses, change purses I used for years, fancy little impractical bags I couldn't live without and carried tucked away in bigger, less decadent bags, or carried alone to dances, parties, or just because.

    Sparkle, simply put, loves shiny things: tinsel, bright lights, facetted stones in bright settings. She, rather than take one thing off before leaving the house, would probably put one more thing on . . . and then maybe one more. And it better be glittery or a little over the top. Other times, she is beautiful in blue jeans and a soft denim shirt, no make-up, tousled hair. Lipstick and Change Sparkle is her only jewelry.

    Seed Beads and Thread



    Using Shepherd's Wool yarn colors as the organizing principle, we have created color-matched packages that include a 1 gram package of no. 8 seed beads, and an 80yd (73m) bobbin of nylon beading thread. There are enough beads in this combination package to finish most any tiny bag in the Noni line and still have some beads left over for embellishment.

    If you are interested in purchasing a yarn that perfectly matches our beads and thread, consider shopping our
