Noni's Vintage Bags conjure images of a
bygone era, when ladies wore gloves as a matter of course. This patter includes
instructions for two sizes and both bags are easy to knit, easy to felt, and
easy to finish. The flaps that enclose the purse frame are knitted as part of
the bag. Then simply sew the flaps around the frame (even when the bag is damp)
for a lovely silhouette.
Difficulty Level: Intrepid beginner
