Noni bags are bags to be worn, not just carried. They
are, like jewelry or any adornment, extensions of our personalities. Let
your creativity guide you as much as these patterns do toward making
your own unique statement. Add interesting combinations of flowers to
your bags, go on color adventures, but most of all, enjoy the process.
Noni flowers are exceptional, not just for their
beauty, but for their ease of construction. The perfect portable
project, they are wonderful as adornments for bags, the cuffs of your
socks, the straps of your flip flops, the tops of gift boxes, hair
thingies, lapels of coats, suits, jean jackets, and just about anything
else that screams out for beauty. Give both the flowers and the patterns
as gifts. Flowers flowers everywhere, all year around!
Noni's felted Three Confections
pattern contains instructions for three confections -- sweet little
bags that are perfect for day trips, fun stops at the downtown mall,
or strolls through a new city. The bags are fun, flirty, easy to
make and finish, but big enough to hold the essentials: keys, wallet
(within reason, you know), lipstick, and (for me) dark chocolate.
Noni has left these little bags unembellished, but
that certainly shouldn't stop you from adorning them with the Noni
flower of your choice.
Perhaps best of all, the
felting & finishing for these three bags is particularly easy. The
Raspberry Liqueur bag can be made in one day, felted, and carried
the next day. The Candied Orange Rind and Maraschino Cherri Bonbon
bags may take slightly longer to knit, but not to finish! All you do
is attach the felted "flaps" to the snap closure handle by folding
them over a detachable rod and hand-sewing them in place (no fancy
stitching as only you will see it). Once this is done (in as little
as 40 minutes or so)you are ready to pack your little bag and walk
out the door.
