From the pattern:

“Ever since the days of the crusades bags have been a useful and ornamental part of the feminine toilette. The bags for this season are greatly varied in design and sizes. The newest vogue is a bag crocheted in the popular Roman colors. The upper part is of heavy, dark green silk to match the predominating color in the crochet. A dainty evening bag is made by using, instead of these colors, delicate pastel shades to harmonize with the gown.”
