Description

This charming 1895 Miser's Purse Pattern was inspired by a vintage pattern in The Art of Crocheting by the Butterick Publishing Co. first published in September of 1895. I have rewritten the pattern using yarn and hook sizes that are widely accessible today while maintaining the integrity of the original design.

The Miser's Purse pictured here was made using Patons Silk Bamboo in Moss, size 8/0 seed beads and a US size G(6) or 4.00mm crochet hook. Each pocket measures 4"x 3" and 7" from pocket to ring. I've included plenty of pictures to make following this pattern easy.

This purchase is for the 1895 Miser's Purse pattern only. It does not come with the purse pictured here.

This pattern is copyrighted and for your personal use only. The purse may be made and given as a gift, but the pattern may not be reproduced for use by others.

Please note that this pattern is written in English using US crochet terms. Wind Rose Fiber Studio is not currently selling outside of the United States.

I hope you enjoy making this 1895 Miser's Purse. Miser bags were popular in the 19th century and were used to carry money by both men and women. The name "miser" comes from the design in that the pockets are somewhat concealed and not as quickly accessed. There are many designs from extremely ornate beaded bags to simple little cotton ones. Men would carry them in their pockets whereas women were more likely to carry them folded over a belt or in their hands as a dainty accessory. They were often weighted at each end with decorative beads to help keep them in place.

There are more vintage reproduction patterns on the way. I am committed to updating and preserving these treasures. They are a precious part of our heritage so let's take them with us into the future!
