  • The Vintage Beaded Pineapple Purse pattern, featured in PieceWork January/February 2012 and adapted by Ave T. Coleman for modern-day materials. Penny purses and coin purses date back to the 1790s. Most were knitted, netted, or crocheted with colored silk, embellished with glass beads, and featuring drawstring or button closures. This vintage pineapple purse featured in PieceWork likely dates from the early 1800s. Adapted by Ave T. Coleman, this small purse's knit stitches resemble the leaves and texture of fruit.
