Thank you for stopping in again today my Friends! I am sharing with you my copy of The Girl's Own Annual. My Mother In Law had given it to me as she knew I would treasure it. It was her Aunt's and was given to her in 1913.
It is full of great stitchery patterns and stories about life in the early 1900's.
My vintage crocheted pieces below are great examples of some of the patterns included in the Manual.
My intention was to add these pieces to some of our pillows but it has not happened yet but who knows... I may get it done this winter.
This section of the book shows how to crochet the top of a chemise as the next two examples show. The first nightgown is ankle length and has the crocheted trim on the bottom.
This piece has not been finished but again I am hoping to add the cotton section to finish the nightgown.
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my treasured book. Thanks for leaving your comments!
