Trunk Show: Noni Purses

September 05, 2013

Nothing is more eye-catching and inspiring than a handbag by Noni Designs.  Vibrantly colored with funky designs and felted flowers, these purses are guaranteed to make you smile!  We currently have some fantastic samples hanging around our store that we encourage you to come see.

If you’ve never tried felting before, it’s a lot of fun!  Knit an extra large version of your project in 100% wool, throw it in a washing machine on hot, and watch it shrink and toughen up!  (Basically, you’re doing everything the yarn label tells you not to do — do not treat your regular projects this way!)  A Noni purse is a great first project; what’s more, their designer, Nora Bellows, has written some fantastic tips and tutorials on felting and putting together your bag, which will make you very happy with the outcome.
