With EIGHT different versions, there are lots of possibilities! The itsy bitsy with no flap makes a great change purse. Add the flap and you’ve got a purse for a wee little person who already loves bags (or a big person who loves wee bags!). The tiny bag with no flap is the perfect accessory for your knitting or cosmetic bag, with a flap, it’s a great passport & money holder to be slung across the body under a jacket or around the waist. The small and medium bags with no flap are the quintessential accessory bag: perfect for cosmetics, school supplies, or any little extras. Add flaps and you’ve got great little bags that go anywhere. Make in fancy fibers for upscale looks. Cross Overs are the perfect canvas for your creativity — as subtle and sleek or individualized as you want them to be.

As with all Noni Bags, you can make these felted or unfelted. Each version is designed for the intrepid beginner; they require knowledge of knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, working in the round on circular needles, and some simple hand-sewing.
