Florence Home Needlework — 1800s Purses

Not too long ago I found some amazing old book pages. They are probably from the 1880s or 1890s, from a book called Florence Home Needle-Work. I love anything old, so that alone was enough for me to be drawn to these pages. However, in the past I have collected some vintage purses, and some of them were nearly identical to these illustrations! These pages confirm some of the things I had guessed about items I owned. I hope you can get some use from these pages, whether you like sewing, recreating old items, or having old images to print out and use in your paper crafting.
