Good Luck!  There will be two lucky winners.

Cherry Blossom Bags (No. 113)

These bags were inspired by the delicate majesty of the Japanese cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. The 3,000 original trees were gifted by the people of Tokyo in 1912. Every Spring at the beginning of April we wait for the pale pink and white blossoms to open. Then we hope for warm weather and no wind so they will last as long as possible.

The aesthetic of these bags is retro and chic: they are reminiscent of the sleek lines found in antique Chinese porcelains or silk brocades. The bag comes in two sizes and a number of colorways. One will be right just for you!

Pattern Difficulty Level: Intrepid Beginner to Intermediate. Requires knowledge of knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, and knitting in the round on circular and double-pointed needles.

Flamenco Bag (No. 126)
- So Easy, So Noni! -

The flamenco bag is a medium-sized bag that was inspired by the luxurious skirts worn by the flamenco dancer. This bag gives the impression of romance and movement even when sitting on a table. It is a roomy bag that can go anywhere, from the park, to a fancy evening out.

Even though the bags look very sleek and high end, the felting and finishing is quick and easy. Simply hand sew the felt “flaps” over the snap handle structure (available from Noni, from Lacis, or from Sunbelt), snap closed, and walk out the door. If you like, add JUL Silver “Red Beauty” Bronze, Silver & Cornelian bag feet to the Red Flamenco bags or “Black Beauty” Silver & Onyx bag feet to the Blue Flamenco bag for a wonderfully luxurious finished look. Also look for Noni pockets, 100% silk pockets available in 7 colors: 2 zippered pockets and a cell phone pouch you can simply sew into your bag. Instant (and beautiful) functionality for any bag!
