It’s small. It’s cute… and perfectly crafty! The Penny Bag is a smaller version of my popular Penelope Bag, and I’m so excited to get this woven purse kit in your hands. The Penny Bag’s unique and sturdy shape—not to mention its swoon-worthy texture—makes it a standout project kit to weave on a smaller frame loom.
You’ll enjoy learning the herringbone pattern for making this pretty little purse. The Penelope Bag, made on a bigger 20", is a bit more involved and intense, while the Penny can be woven on the Flax & Twine Frame Loom relatively quickly.
I’ve crafted this Penny bag in our newest color of Flax & Twine Daytime Linen, Spruce. The rich forest green woven purse kit is great for fall, but you can weave your bag in any of the seven colors I’ve kitted up for you.
Seam up four corners and you have this fabulous handbag. Because of its construction, Penny sits flat, making it a great little project bag! Just like its predecessor, the Penny Bag has a gorgeous herringbone texture that will make you swoon. Accomplish this pattern by repeating the same 4 rows over and over on a Flax & Twine Frame Loom.
Measuring 7" x 7" when sitting, or 11.5” long including the handle, the Penny Bag is the ideal size. A gorgeous leather handle hangs easily over the crook of your arm. This woven purse is also just the right size to carry your lipstick, phone, keys, and sunglasses so you can take them on the go!
