Victoria Purse

A show-stopping bag that takes black and white from day to afternoon to an evening out

Difficulty: Intermediate

This classic black and white felted purse completes your classic outfit. She pairs beautifully with most any outfit but is absolutely stunning with a black and white ensemble: black suit, white blouse, black or white shoes, a pop of color. Picture a red scarf or lipstick, or a pair of hot pink shoes or sandals and matching nail polish. Or even a simple, little black dress.

This purse can take you from a day at the office to the office party at night. She can go with you to any special event: date night, an evening at the wine bar, a bar mttzvah or bat mitzvah celebration, wedding, holiday.

And what woman wouldn't love this bag as a gift. Truly a knitted gift that would be appreciated for the beauty she is.

    Empire Frame and Chain

    (FEMCH-Antique Silver)

    In Stock

    The Empire Frame in antique silver with its heavy matching chain and rhinestone studded closure is beautifully classic, elegant. Like the Empire style furniture for which it is named, the Empire purse frame has carved, curving lines and a solidity of form and construction that make it the perfect choice for both delicate evening bags and larger bags with vintage styling.

    Carry the bag as a handbag with the chain closed inside, or wear it as a shoulder bag: either way, the Empire Frame elevates any bag - felted knitted fabric, woven fabric, or otherwise - to a level of refined sophistication.

    Shepherds Wool Worsted



    I am delighted to let you know that Stonehedge Fiber Mill will continue to sell their gorgeous 100% USA-Made Merino to Noni! We began our businesses at almost the same time and became connected way back in 2008. Nonibags are best made with this yarn. I am excited about the ways that Stonehedge Fiber Mill is evolving and moving toward hand-dyeing. It's so exciting! More to come as they introduce new future colors and products!
