A while ago I bought a few magazines from a vintage fair, one of which was 'Popular Handicrafts and Practical Homecrafts' from August 1957.
It has loads of lovely adverts and quite a few interesting projects to make and I thought since I love to find free patterns online and from other blogs, that I would scan and share some myself. (also it makes a change from having to think up stuff to share that you will all be interested in!)
I've not made this myself yet but I might when I get a minute - I like to have something on-the-go that I can do whilst I'm watching TV in the evening so this might fit the bill. Plus I love hats, Win/win.
Good luck if you give it a go. I'd love to see any photos of the finished article.
