Ready Set Go Tiny Felted Purse

A little purse that clips anywhere and stays put when you are on the go.

(190-2-)
Difficulty: Easy

I have a particular love for oversized shoulder bags and handbags. I like the drama of a large bag and I like that I can be prepared for the unexpected with emergency rations, hand-sanitizer, extra masks, a cloth napkin, metal cuttlery (you never know when you might need to order take out!), and, of course, a knitting project (or two). In the days of movies, I have even been known to stow away some home-popped pop corn.

What I really don't like, however, is digging around in my big purse for my wallet or change when I am standing at the check-out line at the grocery store, hardware store, or pet store (my only go-tos these days). I like to get what I need, pay, and go. 

Ready, Set, Go! makes efficient shopping perfection. The key ring attachment (choose from two styles) allows you to clip her to your belt loop, or purse handle, or just wear as a bracelet by clipping a 10 inch (25cm) Classic Purse Chain to the key ring on the back. 

Dress her up with beading, a brooch, or other embellishments and she's a lovely companion for a future party. I can see this little purse coming with me on lots of adventures when I need the absolute essentials but little else. 

If you prefer, you can also purchase this pattern on Ravelry.

    On The Go 3 Tiny Purses To Take Everywhere

    (190-)

    Delivery Method:

    I like carrying large bags and purses . . . but I don't like digging around in my purse to find my keys, or my credit card at the grocery store.  I came up with a solution: The On The Run! purses:

    Welcome, Change! 

    Pictured here in "Denim" grey and Sun Yellow stripes, this tiny purse is too small for a credit card, but it is perfect for change or other small things: knitting notions, favorite jewelry, a day's medication.

    The Hardware Kit includes:

    1 Flirt Purse Frame

    1 handle loop and washer + key ring combination: choose from a regular, screw-in style handle loop with a 1" (2.5cm) split ring or the beefy, tap tight handle-loop with 1" (2.5cm) spring-gate ring.

  • Clip It Anywhere Keychain.

    This lovely piece of hardware is one of my latest finds and I'm already finding it to be one of my favorite key chains ever. Here's why: The beefy chain terminates on each end with a tube through which 1.25" spring gate rings are slipped. While one ring clips to your purse strap, belt loop, or that handy hook on the wall where you hang your keys, the other spring gate easily opens for keys, your I've Gotta Run Along purse, or anything else you MUST take along with you on your dash in and out of the grocery store, dog groomers, hardware store, or your other errands. Nobody wants to linger long in the shops these days and this handy addition to keeping your keys and other valuables organized, is as beautiful as it is practical.

    The Classic Purse Chain has a timeless quality that makes it the perfect choice to use with Noni purse frames that have built-in loops. To turn clutches into handbags, or handbags into shoulder bags, use the lobster claw ends to clip onto built-in or our screw-in Handle Loops.

    The Classic 27" chain turns any bag into a shoulder bag. Clip two 27" (67.5cm) chains together, and you can make even the tiniest purse a cross body bag.

  • 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.

  • 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.
