McCall's 9227 Fashion Model Hats, Earmuff Covers, Scarf, Muff & Vest / ca. 1980's which looks very Russian - picture Lara from Dr. Zhivago.  Where's the vodka?  Ick - it's still morning what an awful thought.  And best of all - it's for fake fur!  Having had a pet rabbit named Beatrix Hopper while in my 30's I can't touch anything made with rabbit fur.  She was a huge lop earred rabbit and as friendly and personable as any dog or cat I've had.

Featured new:  Simplicity 9556 Ottomans & Footstools Covers ++ 2001 which includes instructions on how to actually make the bases.  Not a common pattern at all.  Would make a lovely and personal gift for Christmas!

Just acquired a very old pattern booklet on making 1920's flapper handbags:  Hiawatha Book of Beaded Bags 8th Edition / 1925.  There are alot of reproductions out there but I only found one other actually from 1925.  I didn't have room to put a picture of every page of the book but please enjoy what I did put in.  They are a wonderful visual history of the Roaring Twenties!
