Here is a page from inside. I can just imagine sending your child out in a crepe paper costume. How much work would this be too? I can't be easy - certainly doesn't look easy! lol
Some old patterns you just have to have! I have always wanted to knit a beret for my daughter (don't ask me why!) and now I have a pattern. The black and white pattern book in the top right hand corner is circa 1946. I am blaming Bitter Betty for inspiring this current obsession with old clothing patterns. She does wonderful things with old patterns on her blog! In the bottom left there is a poncho pattern among others. I missed the last time they came back into style a couple years ago but I'll be ready next time. The last pattern in the bottom right is for doll clothes. So sweet!
I found a couple of old Creative Circle kits. Remember Creative Circle? I thought they looked fun and easy for those moments when you need something in your hands and nothing in your brain! lol The lamb is adorable and might come in handy. One of the quilting groups I belong to has a lot of younger members starting their families and there is an ongoing collection of 6" quilt blocks collected to make baby quilts for each new arrival. If nothing else this might just be a cute baby quilt block when it is done.
And, last but not least, look what I found in the "Free Box" at the cashout - my very favourite Beanie Baby of all times. I love this little guy painting his easter egg and wearing most of the paint. I have one sitting on my computer at home and now I have one for the trailer too.
Well, that's it! $11.00 well spent! Now to get my mindset off acquiring more stash and back to using up the stash I have.
