Parisian Bonbon Sacque of white satin. This is made of half a yard of the material; gold and bluegalon is worked on criss-cross fashion, and tiny seed pearls outline each square. Gold cord and tassels finish off this dainty chocolate bag, which just holds one of the long, narrow cardboard cases in which French sweets are so attractive; the bag remains as a memento.

Flat Bridge Purse. This can also be used for a small glove handkerchief, folded flat. From its shape it can be tucked into the belt or the pocket of a muff or fur coat. It measures four inches. Gold thread fashions the bow on the green silk beloved of Napoleon. Gold beads of varying sizes make the grapes; the design reproduces a First Empire pattern.

Opera-glass Bag. The lower part of this bag is stiffened, being mounted on cardboard cut half an inch larger than a pair of opera-glasses. Cover the card with embroidery in Florentine stitch on the outside, and silk for the lining inside; sew on the upper piece of satin six inches deep, and wide enough to ease on and draw up with ornamental cord and tassels.

The Work-bag, of blue satin, embroidered in Indian design, of gold thread, measures twenty-four inches long and nine inches wide. It is padded and lined with white satin, in which are flat pockets for needlework. In the centre of this is a practical bag of Oriental striped silk, for holding cottons, thimble, needles, etc. Gold cord finishes the edge of the work-holder.

Theatre Bag. The advantage of its long shape is that it holds a fan, besides handkerchief and purse. Three quarters of a yard of four inch wide ribbon is sufficient. Embroider the spray of almond blossom in brown silk, with pink sequins for the buds. Sew on tiny bone rings, and draw up with ribbon.

Evening Slipper Bag

Evening Slipper Bag. This sumptuous bag is made of fine old brocade cut from a Court train which once graced the court of Queen Anne. Lilac and guelder roses are in natural colours on a buff background; the lea are in gold thread. The bag is lined with white washing silk, and holds the shoes of a dainty motorist who prefers to don her fur-lined shoes when starting forth on a fifteen-mile motor ride after a bridge evening.
