Small Crochet Beaded Bag, Free Purse Pattern

I found this public domain pattern in a 1949 issue of McCalls Needleworks.    It's a cute little bag (even with the picture missing a small chunk).

Note - the circle at the top is a detail blow-up showing the pattern with the beads.   Anyway, it's a cute little shoulder bag, where you can crochet the shoulder strap to be whatever length you might wish.  A great little bag to carry just a couple things.  

Now, one thing about this pattern ... it calls for a lining kit that I have no doubt is no longer available.  But, I'm sure that it would not be that difficult to pick up some fabric and create your own lining.     If your looking for a little bag, you might want to give this one a try - it is available in my shop as a Free Download.    It would be a shame just to let these vintage goodies go to waste over a little lining !


Thanks for dropping by,
Lorrie
