1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / More Free Stuff. on: August 22, 2004 11:45:55 AM
Not quite as fancy as the last ones I set up. If you go to my site there's 30 pages of patterns.

No pictures, these are from a textbook used by women at the time, first published in 1893. The patterns run from basic to complex, as you'd expect in a textbook of the time.

The patterns included are: A Woman's Knitted Vest, A Child's Knitted Petticoat, a Penelope or Knitted Sleeveless Bodice, Infant's Knitted Jacket, Baby's Hood, Another Baby's Hood, Boy's Fisher Cap, Comforter, Comforter in Raised Stitch, Comforter (Imitation Network), Muffatees, Shawl in Garter stitch, Shawl in Fancy stitch, A Small Shawl, A Simple Shawl, Shawl in Star stitch, A Pair of Mittens, Knitted Lace Edging, Knitted Edgings including Van Dyke and One Hole, Child's Knitted Muffs, Quilts, Couvrettes and Bassinet Covers, Knitted Bead Frilling. Also instructions on several stitch types, including Brioche, Herring-bone, Rug stitch and Shell patterns.

There are several pages - roughly 50 - of knitting instruction as well. Would you want me to put that up as well? I'm not sure if there's any point to adding instruction pages. As you'd expect, the instructions go from the basics to the more complex knitting.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Christmas Wrapping Guide from Hallmark on: November 26, 2003 10:28:55 PM
Hallmark's ideas on how to play with wrapping paper. This was found in a pile of magazines at a used bookstore. I scanned in a bunch of pages, looks like it would have been published in the 50s/60s.

It's a *BIG* file, 21 pages, 6.5mb. I kept the scans big enough so the instructions were readable.

So if you download it, prepare to wait a bit. And hopefully you won't all kill my bandwidth. Wink
