Little Sweets Purses

Three Micro-Tiny Purse Designs

(184-pdf)
Difficulty: Easy

These three Little Sweets are delightful to put in your knitting tote or handbag. Fill them with stitch markers, tiny scissors, or tapestry needles. Their diminutive silhoettes are too cute to pass up, fun and fast to make, and make great gifts.

Choose 26 1/2 minutes for a pair of precious earrings, your favorite rings, medicines you take at lunch time. Make Just Lipstick as a little purse for a tube of lipstick, chapstick, or your phone blue-tooth. And Little Poof is the cutest change purse ever. It's also great for stitch holders, those tiny snips scissors, and other small knitting necessities.

  • Big and Little Flirt Frames

    Flirt Purse Frame

    (FFL-)

    Size:

    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.

  • Large and Small Alien Skulls

    Alien Skull Ornament

    (SKA-)

    Size:

    The Alien Skull Ornament, available in large and small sizes, adds a bit of whimsy to your bag. We chose to decorate Just the Change, Anouk, and our Lipstick and Change CITY bags with Alien Skulls: we found that the femininity of the bags made the skulls appear almost benevolent, even cute! But don't limit yourself to decorating just bags: jeans, t-shirts, boot, jackets, belts, and anything you can rivet is fair game. We've got our eye on the bottom of a pair of flared blue jeans for our next endeavor. Add the decorated Anouk to the ensemble, and we've got a statement to make!

  • Two skull ornaments with screws.

    There are skull people . . . The mom of one of my girlfriends has knitting and accessory bags with skull and crossbones printed on them. I've seen people wearing skulls emblazoned across hats, the backs of leather jackets, knitted mittens.

    And then there are people who don't know they are secretly skull people . . . I would be one of these. I have always been a great appreciator of the day of the dead, but not a skull person . . . until I screwed this little skull ornament onto the front flap of my
