1940s Three Different Utility Bags - Wartime required ladies to go beyond the call of duty in many ways and making your own bags to carry your items was essential

So interesting isn't it? Almost 80 years later and these bags are just as essential as when they were first created. Why? Back then, you HAD to create them, if you wanted them. You could not just go out and purchase a bag at a low cost. Nowadays, so many around the world WANT to create these because we all know want to save our planet and we now know that plastic bags just are not good for our Mother Earth. In the USA, some counties no long ALLOW plastic bags! You, too, can save the planet by creating these bags for the one's you love! ---> digitally restored/enhanced is now in EASY TO READ LARGE PRINT.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund for my PDF Pattern?

No, due to the nature of digital files, there are NO returns, exchanges, or cancellations. All sales are final.

What YARN do I use?

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns; therefore, vintage yarn does not usually exist anymore. I do not give yarn recommendations to this crucial decision.

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research that based on the information provided in the pattern. Some clues to look for are the descriptive words and ply, for example, 2-ply or 4-ply.

Now, all that being said - I do give an Exclusive Supplemental Gift with tons of info but that does not mean that it has the specific info you are looking for.

*Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched as most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and no longer exist.*

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened?

Here are two things you need to do to print:

1. Open your PDF with Adobe. Adobe.com is free to download worldwide.

2. Then, must print off of a larger piece of hardware - meaning a laptop -----> not a phone.

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print.
