Many years ago, in the days before the internet, I purchased a copy of Graded Lessons in Macrame, Knotting and Netting by Louisa Walker. This week I received a new link from Anthony Emery for Varied Occupations in String Work by Louisa Walker. I was surprised to learn that my copy, published in 1971, is a reprint of the digitized version which was published in 1896.

- Tennis Net (page 122) [miniature version for children to make and use]

This particular bag pattern has a small piece of diamond mesh for the bottom of the bag. The sides are then formed by netting in a spiral around the edge of that piece. It is hard to find where the sides and base of the bag meet.
