Today, let's enjoy some vintage Billy Joel. . .
When I was a little girl, I loved pocketbooks.
I had a little white, vinyl pocketbook . . . and a little black, patent leather pocketbook. I could only use them for special occasions. Like going to church. Or maybe for family events at my Grandparents' house. I loved them.
I have very fond memories of my little pocketbooks.
Which is why, when I saw this bag, I just had to make it!
Futzy beyond imagining.
But. It's an adult version of my little, patent leather pocketbook.
And have it, I must.
Like all Noni bags, the knitting is easy; the construction a challenge. The devil is always in the details with a Noni bag! And the hardware (and face it, it's all about the hardware) is ridiculously expensive.
But still. I love it.
I'm a total sucker when it comes to nostalgia.
(I still have that teddy bear, too. His name is Billy. He is threadbare beyond belief. And, these days, he watches over my sewing machine.)
