Pillbox Hat & Bag : This pattern contains directions to crochet the set pictured. The set includes a pillbox hat and a tubular type wristlet bag. This is a vintage 1939 set from the Spool Cotton Company. There official write-up: "England's fashion leader, the Duchess of Kent, took the tiny pill box to her heart. We offer it here in waffle stitch crochet with a smart bag to match". Now, I don't know anything about the Duchess of Kent, but it is a right smart pillbox hat with the center slightly indented and side ribbon or ornament. The bag has a rounded center, flat ends like a tube with a zip pouch opening. It looks the right size to carry just the essentials for a day out.
