What a delightful item! I have used these instructions to make several lovely dainty beaded purses with antique beads and silk thread I purchased on Atomic Mall! The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. All my projects ended up lovely and was a joy to work with throughout the process and more so upon completion! And, everyone , marvels over how one can make something so fine with a bit of string, beads and a crochet hook! lol
The contents of this CD is representative of the types of needlework expertise of earlier feminine American and European cultures! If you're into nostalgia like I am you will have many hours of enjoyment making and recreating antique crocheted handbags and purses for yourself or others dear to your heart just the way your grandmothers and great-grandmothers did!
You can find the antique silk thread, beads, crystals and crochet hooks on Atomic Mall most every day. You just have to hunt a little bit! :^) Or, you can purchase the contemporary materials at the nearest craft, hobby or fabric store.
FYI: the size of vintage thread used for purses that I've found easy to work with are E, EE, F and larger. Though some antique sources recommend smaller sizes as does this one...
