W Bag Pattern

An Elegant Bag in Two Sizes

(155)
Difficulty: Easy

Who is W? Winsome. Wise. Worldly. We don't know her name, which makes her decidedly mysterious. Or perhaps insecure? No, impossible, with such a lovely frame.

She's the perfect size to keep a big secret (or two little ones). Somehow she crosses the boundaries of class distinctions and attracts attention of the highest sort. At home in a Monte Carlo casino or an English manse, she is just as likely to be found at a bonfire or strolling the beach. What is her secret? She won't tell.

  • Simple Elegance Frame in Three Finishes

    Elegant Snap Frame

    (FE-)

    Metal Finishes:

    The elegant frame is attractive, practical, and versatile with a distinctly vintage appeal. It is an ideal frame for felted, fabric, and leather bags, because it is a sew-in frame with sew holes that are invisible on the outside when the bag is finished.

    Used in many Noni designs, including Amazing Grace, Three Nights in a Row, Petit Four, Fancy Party, and others, the frame converts from a handbag to a clutch when you squeeze the bottom of the little handle. The handle comes easily out of its attractive housing, making it clutch.
