This vintage pattern from 1917 offers the bag in two sizes. The larger bag will hold a wallet but not much more. The small bag is a lipstick bag. It has a drawstring closure and deep pleats at the sides. Use a crisp but lightweight fabric. Choose from either a traditional self-fabric casing or use a gorgeous ribbon for an external casing.
This is a fun and easy project. It makes a great gift and is a good pattern for beginners. Includes authentic period embroidery design and detailed embroidery instructions.
