Noni Spring Beauties Felted Purse Knitting Kit

Spring Beauties are a woodland ephemeral that blooms in the forests of the Mid-Atlantic region where I live. The blossoms dance atop slender stalks: tiny, pale pink flowers, each of its 5 petals painted with darker pin striations scarcely visible to the unassisted eye. I was inspired by these tiny flowers (one of my favorites since I was a girl) to design a small purse that would have their timelessness, femininity, and romance.

Because the bags are quite small, the knitting goes quickly, making them the perfect choice for a gift-knitting project: the romance and delicacy of the flowers make Spring Beauties the obvious choice for a bridal bag, a place to keep and store treasures from that special day. 

Kit includes: Enough Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Shepherd’s Wool to complete kit in recommended gauge, frame, 12" rectangular purse chain, seed beads, nylon beading thread & 6 Noni 16mm bag feet.

Skill Level: Easy.  Requires knowledge of knitting and purling, knitting in the round on double-pointed and circular needles, some hand-sewing.

Pre-Felted Gauge: 20 stitches and 28 rounds = 4” (10cm) in stockinette stitch

You will also need:

  • Size 8 circular 16" needle
  • Size 6 double-pointed needles (set) for flowers. Use smaller needles for smaller flowers.  
  • Sharp sewing needle
  • Stitch markers
  • Paper hole punch
  • Clear-drying glue to glue bag into frame
