HANDSOME PURSE.

MATERIALS.—­1 reel of ombre crimson silk, in short shades; 1 of grey ditto; 3 skeins of rich brown purse twist, 1 skein of white ditto, 2 hanks of steel beads, No. 5; 12 rows of transparent white seed beads, 2 handsome steel slides, and a few steel bugles.  The silk must all be of the finest size, and the work is to be done very tightly.

Begin the purse by threading the steel beads on the brown silk, and the white on the ombre crimson.

This crimson is used for the rose, and for the three small flowers; the coloured silk seen through the transparent bead has an extremely pretty effect; the leaves are entirely in steel beads, as is also the scroll which ornaments the lower part of the purse.  The large flower close to the rose is done in the grey silk.

[Illustration:  HANDSOME PURSE.]

With the white silk, make a chain of 120 stitches, and do one round in s.c.  Join on the brown silk.
