Free pattern: 1950s butterfly evening bag

Etsy seller Cynical Girl shares a free pattern at Vintage Pattern Marketplace for this butterfly evening bag.  It’s a vintage patter, originally published in the 1950s (1955 in Workbasket, to be exact).  It’s shaped like a butterfly, with embroidery and bead trim.  With the short strap, it looks to be a wristlet style purse.  The pattern is made to use felt, but Vintage Pattern Marketplace suggests using fleece as well.  I have one more recommendation to add.  How about vinyl?  This bag would be so rad made out of a vinyl, with felt and sequins for trim.  Follow the link below to download the pattern:
