This is such the iconic girlie girlie purse. It was called a saddle bag back then but we sometimes to refer to it as a bowling bag purse. Whatever you call it, it is adorable. A great way to feature a lovely yarn and fabulous button. This would make a terrific gift or make yourself for Easter Sunday.
The pattern book doesn't have a date on it, but based on other pictures in the book, I'd say this is from the late 50s possibly really early 60s.
