The bags, purses and pouches in this pattern can be varied infinitely. Step-by-step illustrated instructions are given for the basic methods of sewing the different types of bags, followed by specific instructions for the bags illustrated on the cover.

Bags, purses and pouches were essential when the use of pockets in clothing was unknown, only the rich had secure storage for their small valuable items. As with other necessary items of clothing specialized pouches developed, such as hunting bags (to hold game); pilgrim's bags (big enough to carry everything necessary for a long journey); and gaming pouches, to hold dice and other game pieces.
