''The fancy patterns described in this work will be found of great value in knitting mittens or stockings. The descriptions are clear, and if strictly followed, there can be no failure to reproduce the desings, thus adding much beauty to these articles.
One of the latest revivals of an ancient fancy is crocheted bead-work in silk, in the for of purses and bags of various descriptions...While the work described is extremely simple when rightly understood, workds would hardly make clear our meaning were it not for the very clever engravings furnished by our artist. When the fundamental principles are acquired, such as the formation of the stitches, the manner of placing the beads, and the shaping of the purses, the cuts will be all the guide needed to produce the variety of designs which are shown here. Of these there are four shapes, made to conform to the styles of metallic trimmings which the mardet now offords...all easy of execution. Probably no class of fancy work which our readers may underake will prove so satisfactory as the making of these purses...''
