#106 In The Sculpture Garden: Triangle Bag

12 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette, pre-felted fabric

This pattern is available from store.nonipatterns.com for $8.50.

The two sophisticated felted bags in this vintage Noni pattern are the perfect companions for an afternoon in the sculpture garden at the Baltimore Museum of Art, a stroll through the National Garden in Washington DC, or a walk around the tidal basin when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

The rose-pink felted triangle bag is decorated with a felted ruffle top and black camellias that have pink beaded centers. It has a subtle beauty and is much larger than it appears in the picture. Big enough to carry every day and so beautiful you will never tire of it.
