1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Who Else Loves Vintage Toy Patterns? on: July 22, 2014 05:29:53 PM
So my favorite vintage pattern seller on eBay has just finished her annual 30% off sale. I look forward to this sale all year, and this year I cleaned out my watch-list and treated myself to four patterns: a rag doll with outfit (combination, dress, coat & hat) from the 30s; a really sweet cloth baby doll pattern with wardrobe, also from the 30s; a wardrobe pattern to make clothes (40s style) for my composition baby; and a Betsy McCall pattern from the 50s for "Nosy Dachshund and Sleepy Kitty," to make a baby gift or a friend.

Anybody else got it bad for vintage patterns?  Smiley
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / When Do You Give Up on Perfection? on: July 18, 2014 05:50:30 PM
Or, " The Quilt That Never Ends."  Shocked

I've been working on a replica of Jane Austen's quilt for more than four years (handsewing- sporadically). Now I've just finished making the "quilt sandwich," and my border looks pretty crummy. It's uneven and bunching. The border fabric isn't quilting weight, because I had it left over from something else and loved it so much that I decided to use it, never thinking that anything could go wrong.  Roll Eyes I could just make the best of it as it is, or I could go and buy some more fabric, sew a new border on, and do all of the pinning over again. What would you guys do?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can Anyone Help Me Find a Pattern For This Coat? on: November 12, 2012 12:33:30 PM

It looks like a pretty basic pattern, but I'm not sure how to get the front edge to slant like that, and I don't want to just start cutting!  Wink I've found some gorgeous 32-oz. wool which I'm hoping to dye, and I can't wait to get started!
