SUMMARY- I find these antique books fascinating. I lucked into finding this one with the transfer patterns still intact. That particular problem has been a long-running vexation for me with "Workbasket" magazine. Something I found really interesting with this booklet is the rather plain cover in contrast to the full color photo plates inside of the projects. The tatted edgings and matching insertions have some sophistication and the pincushion doily is well executed. the Baby Bonnet is fabric with inserts and a narrow edging.
