The 1910's outing to the theater made me want one of those beaded evening bags you see patterns for from the 1900's to the 1920's. It looks to me like the patterns basically didn't change in that period, which is always good when you're making something of little practical use. Now I want to make the "Elizabethe" from the New Bead Book of 1924.

The PDF link on the Antique Pattern Library page doesn't work, but the one on Ravelry does, taking you here.

It doesn't look like it will be all that much knitting, but if I did the math right, it has ~24,000 beads! I'm curious to see how large "a smart bag of ample size" is.

I put it in my Ravelry queue, but I won't do anything further until I finish the projects I have in hand...well, at least the pinball. It remains to be seen whether I bump it ahead of the 17th century garters I want. I might get more use out of an early 20th century bag than early 17th century garters. I'm not exactly in [livejournal.com profile] reine_de_coudre's neck of the woods.
