Making, Felting, & Finishing Your Noni bag with Nora J. Bellows

In this First Felted Bag class, students will choose from a variety of Noni Designs bag patterns which pair with the Elegant Bag Frame to create a clutch, shoulder bag, or tote with a shorter chain. Change it up to suit your mood and personal style.

July 14th Meeting: Students decide on the pattern they will use to make their bag, pick out or order yarn, pick up their hardware, go over the curriculum and go over felting-on their-own instructions from Noni; students get started if desired.

July 28th Meeting: In this class, we focus on how to sew the bag into the frame, how to put stiffener in the bottom, how to apply bag feet, how to embellish the bag in various ways. Patterns for linings will be available for certain designs if students wish to put linings in their bags. Lining bags will be discussed but will not be completed during class.

First Felted Nonibag Class Materials list:
  • Noni bag hardware kit
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry and sewing needles
  • Sewing pins
  • Super glue – I prefer Lock Tite Extra Time Control
  • Fabric glue, clear drying
  • Size 8 seed beads and nylon beading thread:  I have nylon beading thread and matching beads in some colors but not all . . . Or they can just take care of that themselves. They will need size 8 seed beads and a sewing needle that will work with this size bead.
  • Various preferred embellishments
  • Lining materials, if desired. There may or may not be time for you to make a lining, depending on the bag project you have chosen.
