Little BIG Love and More BIG Love Felted Purses

Two tiny felted purses big enough to hold BIG Love.

(197-)
Difficulty: Easy

These little purses enchant me. I love making them and I love finishing them, decorating them with beads, with beaded hearts, with little knitted flowers (beaded Cherry Blossoms, for example). They are perfect little gift boxes for the necklace you want to give to a family member, or the ring you saw in the Antique Store window that made your think of your best friend and you had to get it for her, or the "something blue" earrings you lent to a God Daughter so she could have something borrowed and something blue, and a beautiful little keepsake purse to remember everything by. 

These little purses are just the right size for special little gifts, and more than big enough for the BIG love and other emotion and meaning associated with such gifts.

These tiny treasures are so sweet and so fast, you can have them ready for a Valentine's Day Lunch or dinner out next week. Or for that Just Because date with someone dear to you.

Little BIG Love! fits in the palm of your hand. It's a flat, lozenge-shaped purse that takes only 20 minutes to knit and less than 20 minutes to put in the frame. The extra beading took me a very pleasant hour or two to complete.

More BIG Love! has more stitches than Little BIG Love, so there is more poof to it, and it a little bit taller. It took about 30 minutes to knit and the same amount of finishing time as Little BIG Love.

You will adore making these little treats, and your special knitters friends will as well. And anyone who receives one will love them, too.

  • Locket Convention

    Locket Ornament

    (PL-)

    Locket Name:

    These lockets really lock, so make sure you keep the key in a good place . . .

    Each locket makes a charming, lovely ornament for a tiny bag. Or it can be used to lock that little box of treasures. Or a secret chest. Or the two zippers of a suitcase or bag. 

    Collect them all as charms. Maybe a girl might like a little locket locked to the front belt loop of a pair of jeans. Lock some rubber band bracelets together in a bunch. Lock the front of your Ella Coat closed and wear the key on a chain around your neck. Lock the french cuffs of a blouse closed. . . Lock through the eyelet on the top of a pair of lace-up boots.
