The recommended skill levels and number of purse patterns for each are:
That beginner design is as fantastic as any of the ones marked for experienced knitters, and is one of the two felted bags in the book. It has a petit train case design, very simple contrasting embroidery (and I do mean simple), with a luxurious bit of velvet lining. (It is actually just a basic piece of stockinette stitch that is felted and then cut to shape and applied to a wooden cigar box. (I don't know where you would acquire that, but tobacco stores might be a good start.) On that one, you could even cheat and use purchased wool felt. Poly felt would be good to experiment with, but it would not give you the same luxurious-looking results.
If you are an experience crocheter (not necessarily an expert), there is one bag that you could quite easily convert to crochet on the basis of the clear pictures and diagrams.
Altogether a classic volume suitable for nearly any knitter's library.
