Two Flavors Pattern

Difficulty: Beginner

Two flavors gives you two versatile little bags in one pattern: The small bag (little flavor) is the perfect change purse, or (as it is in my own bag) the perfect little tote for lip balm, a tiny vial of perfume, and my favorite lipstick. It is also the perfect tiny-going-to-a-party bag. Quick to knit and decorate, it is the perfect gift-knitting project for every woman on your list, from bridesmaids, to little lasses, to hostesses, to teachers who will love it.

The larger bag (big flavor) will not only fit even the largest smart phone like the Galaxy Note II!), but is roomy enough for pen, slim wallet, and keys.

Both bags are a waiting canvas for your creativity: the big bag is an heirloom keepsake decorated with slender i-cord vines with beaded leaves punctuated with diminutive cherry blossoms. Decorate your bright pink little bag with tiny spikes and you will be amazed at how girly spikes can be. Because both bags are so small, you can even cover them with a chaos of flowers from Noni Flowers.

  • Anouk and Just the Change with Cabochon Rivets

    Cabochon Rivets 20 pack


    Metal Finishes:

    Many of the newest designer handbags are decorated with cabochon rivets, and the newest releases almost always sport them. Now, the home-knitter and crafter can use these same top-quality rivets to make similar cutting edge designs on the flaps and bodies of felted, fabric, or leather bags. 

    Available in Shiny Nickel, Gunmetal, and Antique Brass so you can match your bag hardware with each, our package of 20 9mm Cabochon rivets add interest to felted and finished bags, knitted and ready-to-wear garments, coats, boots, sandal straps . . . Both rivet head and shank have smooth caps so they are pretty on front and back.

  • 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
