I have had some luck recently finding textiles books (here and here) at the oppies and this week was no exception.A lovely hardcover needlework book first published in 1950, this book is the “Fourth Impression 1972”. And with these clear step by step instructions on how to crochet, hopefully I will be joining the “crochet club” soon.
This book, while not exactly a Flea Market Find, was very cheap – only $4.50. I found it at Lincraft!
This week I have been inspired by my find last week and by Kate’s gorgeous dress making, and have been flicking through all the patterns at the oppies. I found these. These illustrations of elongated models always make clothes look so good don’t they? But I love the dress pattern on the left. Not sure if it would suit me but I can only give it a go. Now to choose some fabric…
Oh and one of them came with the pattern cut out of an old 1975 newspaper. Just look at those house and land prices back then!
